Accent Physical Therapy | Health & Beauty
Welcome! I'm John Duplessis, PT, CKTP of Accent Physical Therapy. I have had extensive training in mechanical diagnosis and treatment of the spine and extremities, orthopedic manual therapy, and muscle energy techniques of the spine and ribs. I have worked in many private practice settings with various sports teams, including amateur wrestling, tennis, rugby, track & field, iron-man, and ultra-marathon athletes.
I have practiced in the USA for over 17 years – I was a traveling therapist in Indiana, Louisiana, North Carolina, and Maine, and was employed at SouthEastern Regional Medical Center in affiliation with Duke Medical Center for over 3 years. I managed an Orthopedic Surgeon-owned Outpatient Physical Therapy facility for 3 years before relocating and starting my own outpatient clinic here in Wilmington.
My strong belief in early treatment and prevention - utilizing exercise, high-tech electro-therapeutic modalities including laser therapy and manual skills - allows me to help return my patients back to full function. My personalized approach and comprehensive evaluations ensure high quality specific treatment with excellent outcomes in just a few visits!
I am also a Kinesio certified specialist. Kinesiotaping is 100% medical grade acrylic heat activated adhesive uniquely designed to mimic qualities of human skin. It can be worn 24 hrs/day for 3-5 days.
Kinesiotaping helps to:
- Re-educate the neuromuscular system
- Reduce pain
- Enhance performance
- Prevent injury
- Promote good circulation and healing
