At MVMT 360 Physical Therapy we utilize a comprehensive evaluation process in order to determine an accurate diagnosis and subsequent treatment plan.
All therapy sessions are one-on-one with a Doctor of Physical Therapy who holds an additional certification in orthopedic manual therapy.
Manual therapy is a hands on approach utilizing a variety of different techniques targeted at joint mobility, range of motion, flexibility, neuromuscular reeducation, and soft tissue. Exercise is then used as an adjunct to the manual therapy and targets faulty movement patterns that directly contribute to your symptoms. These dysfunctional movement patterns are typically caused by weakness, compensations from pain, mobility restrictions, soft tissue limitations, or a lack of stability over time.
Ultimately, our hands-on approach through manual therapy, corrective exercise programs, attention to detail, and personalized treatment plans guarantee better results for our patients so that they can achieve their movement goals faster.
What We Treat:
Your evaluating therapist will see you through your entire treatment plan as we strive to create a more personalized experience. With the same therapist providing a hands-on, one-on-one, hour-long session you receive the attention and care you deserve!

Types of Treatment
Trigger Point Dry Needling
Tigger Point Dry Needling is a technique that helps reduce myofascial pain related to a variety of different injuries and conditions. A thin filament needle is inserted into a specific tender or painful area of muscle tissue called a “trigger point”. Trigger points are hyper-irritable spots or palpable nodules within taut bands of muscle fascia that radiate or refer pain. The benefits of TDN are often felt immediately and work to reduce muscle tension, promote tissue healing, decrease myofascial pain, and increase range of motion.
Joint Mobilization and Manipulation
Joint Mobilization and Manipulation
Joint mobilization and manipulation are both effective manual therapy techniques done to restore mobility and range of motion while at the same time reducing pain. Both are passive techniques but mobilization is done at much lower grades compared to the high-velocity thrust of a manipulation.
The fascia is the network of dense, fibrous membrane in your body that covers the muscles, tendons, and skeleton. Myofascial release is a hands-on technique in which sustained pressure is applied to the myofascial connective tissue to ease restrictions, decrease pain, and improve range of motion. Most patients feel a rapid elimination of pain and the return of mobility to the affected area.
Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization
Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM) is a technique that enables physical therapists to efficiently locate and treat soft tissue dysfunction. The technique is performed with ergonomically designed instruments that treat fascial restrictions, soft tissue fibrosis, chronic inflammation, and encourage the bodies natural healing response by increased blood flow to injured tissue.
Muscle Energy Technique
Muscle Energy Technique (MET) uses muscle contractions and body positioning to normalize joint movement. The theory behind MET is that if a joint is not used to its full range of motion, it is likely that this range will become limited over time and be at greater risk for injuries. MET can help patients stretch and lengthen muscles that are impairing joint movement, strengthen the muscle group in a specific area, increasing range of motion, and relieve pain.
In order to empower our patients to be partners in their own recovery and attain their rehabilitation goals faster, therapeutic corrective exercises are provided to every patient to reinforce progress made during each visit. Corrective exercises are the “secret sauce” to the rehabilitation process and drastically improve outcomes when done consistently. Our exercises are custom-designed to help each person meet their specific needs and build endurance, resistance, and flexibility. Therapeutic exercise is designed to help build muscle strength, improve functional capacity, reduce stiffness, release contracted muscles, tendons and fascia, improve circulation, and accelerate healing.
Neuromuscular re-education is a therapeutic exercise technique that addresses faulty nerve and muscle activities. These exercises are particularly beneficial for unhealthy movement patterns that persist after an injury. Our Movement Specialists are trained in recognizing these neuromuscular deficiencies and aim to restore natural and energy-efficient movement patterns, optimize joint biomechanics, and reduce pain.
