Teaching YOU how to Get RESULTS

since 1999

Dear Friends,
It’s been 15 years since Nick Rinard devoted a physical therapy clinic to practicing Mechanical Diagnosis & Therapy.  In that time, we have helped so many of you get back to a pain-free life.  We’ve received pictures of our patients doing their exercises in all corners of the world, and are so proud of being part of your journey. THANK YOU for giving us all at MDT Physical Therapy the pleasure of teaching you how to get RESULTS!

Don’t take our word for it

“I have been cutting hair for 46 years, and I have been experiencing pain in my right shoulder for at least 3 years.  The pain has been getting worse and limiting movement & my ability to cut hair.  2 weeks ago the pain diminished to the point I could forget about it.  I believe this was due to a new set of exercises designed by Megan and am very pleased with my progress. ”
-Curtis 01/21/2014
“Initially my pain level in my right let was a 10.   On my very first visit the pain subsided significantly-to the point that I believed there was some magic happening!  I would never imagined that 2 simple exercises would bring me to a pain level of zero.  The ongoing preventative exercises are part of my daily routine & will continue to be.  I truly appreciate all of the staff.  They are professional & serious about bringing their patients to a pain-free outcome.  Thank you.”-Debbie 01/09/2014

Sweet (and Healthy) Chocolates for your Valentine…Or Yourself!


Valentines Chocolates in a Heart Shaped BoxJust use your favorite Valentine-shaped cookie cutters to make these treats!

  • 1 1/2 cup walnuts
  • 8 Medjool dates (these are softer than other dates, and easier to blend)
  • 1/2 cup cocoa (use less if you don’t love dark chocolate)

Blend walnuts in a high powered blender or food processor until a powder.  Pit the dates, then add walnut powder to a bowl and the pitted dates. Using your hands mix the two ingredients together until the dates are completely incorporated.  Add the cocoa.  Shape into a mold. Top with dried fruit, coconut, granola, or peanut butter!
