Tidewater Physical Therapy’s Kevin Dintino Earns Doctorate of Physical Therapy

Kevin Dintino, PTTidewater Physical Therapy is pleased to announce that Kevin Dintino, Regional Director of the Southeast and Central Virginia-based independent physical therapy practice’s 12 clinics in Richmond, Va., earned his Doctorate of Physical Therapy through the Evidence in Motion Institute for Health Professions.

Dintino is a 1989 graduate of the University of Toledo and is recognized for his use of functional exercises and a variety of manual treatment techniques to help his patients.

Dintino’s motivation to return to school after decades of success in the field of physical therapy?

“I wanted to augment my education to current standards,” Dintino said, alluding to the fact that new physical therapists now come out of school with the doctorate-level education.

Dintino chose the Evidence in Motion program, he said, because of its “focus on private practice management.”

As a Regional Director, Dintino spends part of his time treating patients and part managing the clinics in his area.

Tidewater Physical Therapy, established in 1986, has long supported the lifelong learning efforts of its staff, from completing additional collegiate-level education to hosting monthly in-services for its clinical staff, offering frequent continuing education courses in its clinics with nationwide leaders in physical therapy treatments.


Many of the physical therapists at Tidewater Physical Therapy Inc. hold Direct Access Certification through the Virginia Board of Physical Therapy.

Kevin holds Direct Access Certification and is available to evaluate and treat patients without a prescription from a physician.
