Nick Rinard – Certified in MDT. Research your “MDT” therapist for known results.

Nick Rinard Physical Therapy searched “McKenzie physical therapy Portland” to see which clinics advertised using this credentialed method.

We noticed a trend of clinics advertising use of the method but none of their physical therapists were actually certified in MDT. Nick Rinard Physical Therapist is certified in the methodology, has been for the last 20 years, and will always be prominent in the MDT community!

Strengthen your MVA case by visiting Nick Rinard Physical Therapy first!

Here is what patients said about how Nick Rinard helped them after a car accident:

Not all physical therapy is the same.

Some are more effective than others.

If you have had Physical Therapy, did it work?

 If you are going to Physical Therapy now, is it helping? If yes, you should continue until you are better.

However, if you are not getting better, or if they need Physical Therapy in the future, then you should read on.

Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy (MDT) has been shown in numerous scientific studies to be the most effective type of Physical Therapy available today. However, you and patients should know just what MDT is so you can be sure you are actually receiving it.

The MDT method does not rely on technological gadgets such as ultrasound or electrical stimulation commonly used in traditional Physical Therapy. There is little evidence to show that these machines actually help in recovery. Instead, Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy, as its name suggests, uses mechanical forces to centralize referred pain, and to correct the physical problem. Exercises designed specifically for each patient, affect pain immediately, and can be performed by the patient whenever pain arises.

Over a short time, these exercises heal the injury and allow full recovery. In our clinic, Nick Rinard Physical Therapy, the average number of visits is only six and a half!

Why is Nick Rinard Physical Therapy different?

 

-Specialized MDT training allows our physical therapists to target the cause of a patient’s pain, not just treat the symptoms.

-Patients see a physical therapist at each visit-never a PT Assistant. 

-Exercises are simple and can be done anywhere.  No gym, no binder full of exercises.  Most of our patients can control their symptoms with just one targeted exercise!

Nick Rinard PT taught me how to fix the problem

Did you know that the majority of patients at Nick Rinard Physical Therapy are actually returning patients referred years ago, or have been referred by a past patient?

We have asked our patients how we compared to other PT they had tried. Here’s a small sample of what they had to say:

‘The other PT office was more like mass production-routing patients through.’ –Bryan

‘(Nick Rinard PT is) way better. You actually fix things. ’ -Georgeanne

‘Nick Rinard PT taught me how to fix the problem myself-other therapists didn’t.’ -Gail
