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

  • Nick gave me the optimistic hope that I could restore health and strength to my ankle with the exercises he gave me. In the first session Nick and I made progress getting my ankle to feel better and by the third visit I was making progress on my own and released from physical therapy. I plan to continue the exercises and monitor my progress over time. Before my experience w/Nick I was told that nothing could be done for my ankle until the pain became too unbearable; surgery would need to be done. I expect to make more progress on my own so the surgery will never be required. Thank you Nick and Staff.

    Carl ,

  • I have just completed treatment with Nick Rinard for back pain. Wow!!! What a great experience! I am not only pain free but I have also been taught how to prevent future injuries to my back by doing daily exercises to strengthen my back and core muscles! The McKenzie Method performed by Nick and his trained MDT therapists works far better than any conventional PT methods.

    Dave N,

  • Nick is a master of physical therapy. He sets a standard that is so far ahead of other therapists. His diagnostic abilities and treatment are so good that I get rapid consistent results no matter the body part or pain I find myself in.

    Dave N,

  • I have achieved excellent results! The methods and treatment plans used by Nick are so impressive. It works so much better than the conventional PT methods. I really appreciate Nick's knowledge and thoroughness in helping me get the results I was looking for... Nick was interesting in getting me back to my prior injury self like nobody else was.

    Dave N.,

  • The diagnosis and therapy prescribed has been good and promises to lead to complete recovery from lower back pain. I will continue the exercises and attention to my posture to further the progress on my own toward total recovery. I appreciate the professional expertise and attentiveness to details offered at Nick Rinard Physical Therapy.
