Healing Hands, written by Suzanne Laurent…… Joanna White said the only word that pops into her mind when describing Integrative Manual Therapy is “magic.” Of course it’s not magic, but for the 54-year-old North Hampton woman, to wake up in the morning without pain is life-changing. White suffers from Lyme disease, diagnosed in 2005, which causes episodes of vertigo. In addition, White has back and hip pain as well as jaw pain. She also has a hiatal hernia, a...

David G. Burchuk, Owner PT, ATC

David G. Burchuk, Owner PT, ATC Founded Lighthouse in 1995 – 17 years My interest In Physical Therapy came about while working part time as a Gymnastics coach. As a coach I had to analyze the body’s movements to figure out the best corrections to give the athlete that would make the biggest change in their performance. This became my passion and led me to switch careers over 25 years ago from Mechanical Engineering to Physical Therapy in order to work with people instead of paper and pencil. Since my childhood I have been active in sports where I received a few injuries. The most significant...

My curiosity was piqued.  I volunteered that summer at our local Physical Therapy department and was hooked! Even back then, I loved working with people from all walks of life. I loved the creativity it required to optimize a person’s function.  I loved helping improve their...

Matthew M. Begnoche, PT Joined Lighthouse in 2001 (minus 1 year) – 10 years In high school, I literally picked ‘physical therapy’ out of a big book of careers because it seemed interesting.  After graduating from the University of Vermont, I found myself in an expansive field with facets that affect every aspect of health, well-being, and personal interaction, which ignited a passion for learning that has lead to thousands of hours of training in anatomy, physiology, neurology, biomechanics, nutrition, and psychology. This training has come through various outlets, including groups such as...
