I originally went to see Mark Lusk at MVMT because of ongoing pain deep in my left groin from a sports injury. I regularly play soccer and remain active and the pain and caused me to reduce or stop my activity for months until I finally decided to look into PT. Mark was very thorough in reviewing my body mechanics and sequencing of motions. He quickly identified some muscle issues and poor mechanics, and began treating the injury with manual manipulation, stretching and eventually some strengthening. Within 1 treatment, I was already improving. After 3-4 visits, I felt good enough to start getting back into the gym and training which I wasn't able to do with nearly 3 months of resting what I thought was a groin strain that wouldn't heal. Since my first visit 2-3 years ago, I've returned to Mark any time I've had issues creep up whether it's my back or neck from poor posture at the office or another muscle/joint injury from sports. I always tell people that if I had this type of care as an athlete through high school and college, I would have performed at even higher levels and been in much better physical condition. I highly recommend MVMT whether your goal is improving you have a minor niggling concern or something more serious. It will significantly improve your ability to stay fit and active, recover from injury, or perform at your highest level.
Personalized Care. Very Experienced PT.
The pure 1 on 1 time during the 45 minute session is something I'd never seen a Physical Therapist do before, and it was amazing to get Mark's undivided attention for that time! He's incredibly knowledgable about the body and helped me so much with my head, neck and back pain. I recommend him to anyone I hear needs to go to PT!
Dr. Mark is simply the best! I had major surgery on my foot, including bone debridement, Achilles removal/repair, and major ligament repair, and after only a few visits with Dr. Mark my surgeon was shocked by the strength in my ankle and toes! Dr. Mark explains and demonstrates everything thoroughly, including drawings on his door to expand a thought. I am also plus sized and he treats me as he treats any other patient and abides by the HAES standards! If you are in need of some physical therapy for reasons large or small Dr. Mark is the best possible choice. 5 Stars.
