Physical Therapy that Gets Results

Don’t DEAL with pain, HEAL it.

Nick Rinard Physical Therapy (formerly Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy of Portland) in Portland, Oregon, is a small network of Physical Therapy clinics devoted to healing people and giving them the power to heal themselves.

Founded in 1999, MDT of Portland (now Nick Rinard Physical Therapy) was the first Physical Therapy clinic in the Northwest devoted to practicing the MDT Method. We have two Physical Therapy clinics serving the Portland Metro Area and remain the only Physical Therapy practice that specializes in this method. For that dedication we have been rewarded with the reputation as the Physical Therapy Clinic That Gets Results. And we honor that reputation every day by seeing our patients recover, more than 9000 and counting, in as few as 4-6 visits.

But don’t just take our word for it; schedule a Physical Therapy appointment today and see for yourself how you can finally live pain free!

If you are in pain, take the first step to feeling better. >>

What our patients say

  • " I had came in for pinpoint back pain that was pertaining for several months. After coming to Nick and being taught targeted movement and stabilizing exercises, the pain is gone. Within a couple of visits and home exercise programs I finally got the results I wanted and needed. not only is the back pain gone, but also the low grade chronic low back pain I had for over 30 years is gone as too! Thanks again Nick Rinard Physical Therapy!"

    Laura F.,

  • " When I came to Nick, my body was dysfunctional to the point that normal life and normal activities were painful and that doesn't include the sport-type of activities I wanted to do but couldn't. Within in 9-12 easy and promising visits, my back and hips are improving and recovering miraculously. I am more knowledgeable and understand more about my body than I ever did. I understand how to move my body correctly and perform exercises to support and strengthen it throughout my life and sport activities. Thanks again Nick Rinard Physical Therapy!"

    Autumn C.,

  • Nick and his team take a holistic approach to the patients treatment plan, I really appreciate the results based focus on achieving goals that I was wanting. I really appreciate the time and encouragement from Nick and this team, they really got me what I was wanting. Thanks again!"

    Neil B.,

  • "I had not been running in a few weeks. I had ran a mile on Monday and Wednesday. However, on Tuesday morning I woke up to tight and excruciating pain in my right knee. Whether it was from walking or bending, my knee would just constantly hurt. The first time I saw Nick a week later I felt the pain again; he had done an assessment on my knee and some physical tests. Within minutes, Nick noticed what was going on and told me why I had pain in my knee and what was causing it. He assigned me some treatment exercises to take home and told me how it was going to heal. Within two more visits prior to the first one I had and homework exercises (1 legged squats), my knee is on the road to recovery and and fully functional again. I am starting to run without any pain now! I am glad to see the results I was looking for within three quick easy visits. Thanks again Nick Rinard Physical Therapy and Team!"

    Elijah S.,

  • "I am so pleased with my treatment and results at Nick Rinard Physical Therapy. Nick and the staff were clear, attentive to my symptoms and sensitivities, and always accommodating to my schedule and budgetary limits. I am in significantly in less pain than when I started seeing Nick a couple of months ago. Now I can finally see a future where I am able to run again! Finally, I would be remiss not to call out Christa at the billing of who went above and beyond to help me navigate my insurance madness. Thanks again to Nick Rinard Physical Therapy and team, you guys are great!"
