At MTI we believe every individual should have the tools to achieve optimal health and function. We apply scientific principles to adequately examine, evaluate and treat acute or chronic movement dysfunction.
Our goal is not just to treat the symptoms. We work closely with our patients in identifying the source of injury and pain and other potential factors that directly affect healing. Education plays a large role in the success of our patients. We believe a deeper understanding of the nervous system, musculoskeletal system and biomechanics is essential to living pain-free and attaining high levels of performance.
At MTI, we deliver a hands- on, top tiered professional approach to physical therapy. We evaluate and treat a wide variety of conditions and movement dysfunctions. All physical therapy sessions are 60 minutes in length. We work one-on-one with each client and ensure treatment sessions are tailored to meet individual needs to help reduce pain, restore motion/coordination, gain strength, and improve overall performance.
