Untapped Potential Physical Therapy is owned and operated by two highly trained physical therapists, Drew Scrimgeour and Tracy Eisenbeis.
With great excitement, Tracy and Drew welcomed Blair Watson, PT, MPT, OCS to join their busy and growing practice in 2018. They started Untapped Potential Physical Therapy with a unified goal of improving their patients' health and well-being, even (and especially!) when typical physical therapy methods have not achieved the desired results.
At the heart of this approach is the conviction that physical therapy should be patient-centered and delivered with compassion and sensitivity. You will feel listened-to, valued, and respected. You will be a partner in your therapy. They look forward to hearing your story and helping you reach your goals to reach your full potential.

In her years since PT school, Tracy has focused on mastering Functional Manual Therapy (FMT) and passing the rigorous CFMT exam with Distinction in 2011. She quickly came on as Faculty-in-Training for the Institute of Physical Art and is on track to be a primary instructor in 2016. Since earning CFMT, Tracy has also earned her certification as a Mulligan Practitioner (CMP), delved deeply into visceral mobilization at the Barral Institute and entered the women's health world by studying with Herman & Wallace Pelvic Rehabilitation Institute and Gail Wetzler.
Tracy enjoys spending time with her husband Kirk doing all kinds of things. They swing dance, ski, snowboard and hike, they love to travel domestically and abroad. Tracy enjoys a really good book or movie, the beach and cooking. She is also a bit of a continuing education junkie.

Drew received his Bachelor of Arts from Skidmore College and went on to pursue his clinical Doctorate in Physical Therapy at Hunter College through the Graduate Center of CUNY. He developed a passion for manual therapy and discovered how effective physical therapy can be when it focuses on efficient movement and addresses the underlying causes of pain, rather than only treating symptoms. He then traveled to Northern California where he completed a 6-month residency program at the Kaiser Rehab Center in Vallejo, specializing in Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation (PNF).
Drew next completed a year-long residency program in Functional Manual Therapy (FMT) through the Institute of Physical Art. Upon completion, Drew undertook the week-long intensive certification process for Functional Manual Therapy™ through the Institute of Physical Art and passed with honors. Since then, he has continued his training by taking courses in the Maitland system (MAPS) and in osteopathic evaluation and treatment with Tim Crunk (Crunk Seminars). Most recently, he received his certification in Dry Needling through the Institute of Advanced Musculoskeletal Treatments (IAMT).
In 2015, Drew and his wife Connie happily welcomed their first child to the world. She has filled the house with joy, but definitely keeps her parents on their toes!
