Norman Regional Health System | Ortho Central Physical Therapy

Physical therapy is an important step in your road to recover from an injury. It can also improve mobility for patients suffering from a degenerative condition or disability. Physical therapy intervention focuses on posture, locomotion, strength, endurance, cardiopulmonary function, balance, coordination, joint mobility, flexibility, pain control and activities of daily living.

Whether it’s an orthopedic or sports injury or a musculoskeletal problem, the Ortho Central team offers decades of cumulative experience, the highest level of quality care, and compassionate treatment.

Physical therapy may be the only treatment needed, or your surgeon may prescribe it to rebuild movement and strength following a surgical procedure. Every treatment program is based on orthopedic or neurological findings that may include but are not limited to:

  • Back and/or neck conditions
  • Muscle strains and/or ligamentous sprains
  • Post-surgical conditions
  • Degenerative conditions
  • Fractures and/or dislocations
  • Repetitive and/or overuse injuries
  • Neurological conditions

From the initial consultation to the final visit, our therapists will continually evaluate the patient’s capabilities and physical status to determine the most appropriate treatment at that point in the rehabilitation process. They’ll not only oversee the therapy program but also make sure the patient understands it, taking the time to explain what is being done and why.

Our physical therapists are:

  • Corinne Gil, PT

  • Daphne Hester, PTA

Daphne said she decided to become a physical therapist assistant because she’s been interested in health, fitness and wellness most of her life. She likes to treat orthopedic patients, athletes or non-athletes, of all ages because she said she cares about people and their well-being, and wants to help them have a better quality of life.

Daphne enjoys bike riding, running, weightlifting, hiking, spending time with her family, and watching sports, especially gymnastics, football and basketball. She also enjoys reading Christian books and watching action movies or TV shows.

  • David Haynes, MS, PT, SCS, OCS, ATC, MDT

David Haynes, PT, is a fellowship-trained physical therapist with Norman Regional’s Ortho Central clinic. He is also a board-certified sports Clinical Specialist and Orthopedic Clinical Specialist. David developed an interest in physical therapy when he sustained an ACL tear and experienced physical therapy as a patient. David said his patients can expect a provider who will go the extra mile to make sure they return to their prior level of functioning.

David has been a PT and Norman resident for 30 years and was raised in Oklahoma. He currently lives in Norman with his wife and four children. He has a passion for taking care of people and can empathize after having multiple knee surgeries himself.  A former marathoner and now an avid cyclist, he can be seen all over Norman. Just look for the bicycle league of Norman multicolored jersey.

  • Jessica Hobbs, PT, DPT

Jessica got her Bachelor of Science at Southwestern College in Winfield, KS, and then pursued her Doctorate of Physical Therapy at the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center where she graduated in May of 2018. She had a lot of physical therapy herself through injuries in high school and college, and fell in love with the profession when she worked as a tech at a clinic in college. As a provider, Jessica wants her patients to know that she has been in their shoes and is invested in their progress and in helping them get better. She loves to work with all diagnoses and patients of all ages, and she loves to have fun in the clinic!

  • Jessica Kuwitzki, DPT

Jessica is a Board Certified Sports Clinical Specialist and residency trained sports physical therapist, an accomplishment of less than 1% of licensed physical therapists. She received her Doctor of Physical therapy from the University of Oklahoma Health Science Center where she is also an Adjunct Clinical Professor.

Jessica is a decorated athlete who spent over a 10 years as a competitive gymnast, a varsity cheerleader, and an All-State pole vaulter. She took this passion to Oklahoma State University and graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Athletic Training with experience working with Division 1 cross country, softball, and football athletics. She uses her experience as an athlete and extensive training in sports medicine with the goal to bridge the gap between rehabilitation and return to sport.

Jessica enjoys working with athletes and the athletic population, but also looks to empower her patients to utilize movement to live long, healthy lives.

  • Amiee Pinkerton, PTA

Amiee played sports growing up and dealt with injuries so she chose to become a physical therapist assistant so she could help athletes get back to their game. Amiee is still big into sports. That’s why Amiee especially likes to treat athletes, but likes treating anyone who wants to get to better.
