As a professional dancer, I've had my fair share of injuries and have been to many (MANY) physical therapists over the past decade in New York City. Mark was referred to me by a fellow dancer and I am so grateful I visited MVMT. Previous doctors and physical therapists had thought my pain stemmed from a previous back injury, but thanks to Mark's help (and his wonderful referrals to additional practitioners in acupuncture, orthopedics, and pain management), we discovered my issue stemmed from a labral tear in my hip. Comprehensive treatment from my whole team finally got me out of chronic pain and back in the game. Some physical therapists I've seen are very formulaic...having you "rate" your pain (an impossible thing for a dancer!) and giving you a standard set of exercises. Mark is a different kind of physical therapist. He is incredibly knowledgeable and trained (and continues his education and teaching), has experience as a professional dancer, and truly listens and works with his patients where there at -- with their goal in mind (to get back to whatever activity they love). Every question I had was answered. Every day I came in in tears I felt safe, supported, and like someone was on my team, listening to me and helping me figure out how to get better. I cannot recommend MVMT enough. Mark, Theresa, Nikai, and Mark's PT apprentices all make the MVMT experience so wonderful. Thank you, MVMT! I am so, so grateful!
I was thrilled with my experience working with Mark! I was having back pain and spasms that prevented me from making it through a full day working from home without pain. This also limited how much I could attend Crossfit classes, which I had been doing for 3+ years. With Mark's guidance, I was able to find proper standing postural alignment, a comfortable seated position at the desk, and implement this pain-free alignment across my Crossfit lifts. I am working at home with no pain and have fully returned to Crossfit! Mark armed me with a rehab plan and key exercises that I can always implement to help strengthen the weaker parts of my body (which are now getting stronger)! He is extremely knowledgeable and helped clearly explain why I was feeling the way I did. I highly recommend seeing Mark for any physical therapy needs - you will have a great outcome and enjoy working with him!
I came back from vacation on crutches after jamming my ankle in a canyoning accident. Through careful and gradual progressions, Mark got me back to walking, squatting, jumping, running, even dancing onstage for a performance! He was always available to answer my questions and gave me the tools I needed to recover. I am so grateful for his knowledge, warmth and encouragement that got me back on two feet!
As a Broadway performer and an avid outdoor sports enthusiast, there are a varied and diverse degree of demands I make on my body. After a surgery, 3 physical therapists, and over 2 years of struggling through a major back injury, working with MVMT Physical Therapy was the key turning point in my recovery. Many physical therapists will pair their practice with a particular occupational specialty, but Mark is the first practitioner I have worked with that integrates the nuance of an expertise in dance technique with a sports, strength training, and athletic prowess. His one-of-a-kind vantage point created a process that has given me confidence in a lasting maintenance and sustainability. Mark created a bespoke approach to my needs and because of his nimbleness I can reclaim a full and active life.
