I started going to Mark after experiencing hip and leg pain. As an active person and a swimmer I needed a PT who would understand my issues and help me get back into the pool/lake/ocean. Mark worked with me individually every session - as opposed to previous PT experiences where the therapists changed at each session and worked on many clients simultaneously. He explained everything he was doing and developed a PT program for me to do at the gym. Mark is knowledgeable, patient and personable. Theresa is very helpful with appointments and insurance issues. With their help I was able to get back into the swim. I highly recommend MVMT PT.
I recently completed a therapy course with MVMT and Mark Lusk, and could not be more satisfied with the experience. Marks level of insight and expertise were excellent, and the overall experience was a new one for me as pertains to physical therapy. I have been through many facilities for different recoveries and they all felt like I was getting a mediocre training session at a gym for hurt people. The sessions with MVMZT by comparison were done in a private room in a 1:1 setting so I was the full focus of the therapists attention, not one of 3 a therapist was running between at most places. My overall pain in the area has been reduced by therapeutic treatment for scar tissue and mobility in the area in the office sessions and my strength in the affected knee has been significantly improved after the strengthening program I was given at MVMT, both in office and at home prescribed workouts. I could not give MVMT and Mark Lusk a stronger recommendation, he is absolutely world class.
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.
