About 5 years ago I injured my back lifting weights. Since the initial injury, I went on to reinjure the same spot twice. I initially was reluctant to go to a chiropractor but eventually gave it a try. After seeing 2 different chiropractors for an extended period of time, I found I could make my back feel better temporarily but nothing close to permanently healed. In early 2023 I faced the options of either going to physical therapy or getting a MRI that may lead to a surgical procedure. I chose to go the physical therapy route and am thrilled that I did.

Anastasia at MVMT Physical Therapy took the time to thoroughly examine my back. I found her to be honest in both her assessment and realistic for the prognosis moving forward. Then we went to work.....Over the course of 3-4 months we were able to get my back pain/discomfort more manageable than I could've hoped for. I was also taught stretches and exercises that can help if I am experiencing discomfort and to prevent future issues. I would highly recommend this practice to anyone who is frustrated with an injury that they aren't sure will heal, especially if you are experiencing back issues.

I truly wish I could give MVMT Physical Therapy more than 5 stars! I started PT at MVMT about a month ago after shin splints nearly benched me from another race. It is my first time ever doing PT and I was nervous starting, but Anastasia has been wonderful! She is warm, empathetic, and engaging. She really takes the time to explain the mechanics behind why one experiences pain from movement and why certain exercises will help. In just a month of working together my shin splint is nearly healed, and I feel confident that it won't return because of the strengthening exercises Anastasia has been teaching me. I am beyond thankful for this practice, and can only imagine how strong of a runner I will be after some consistent PT!

I went [here] with a problem that no other doctor had been able to solve. My legs were almost completely unable to function. I could not participate in any exercise of any kind, nor could I do something as simple as checking my mail at the end of my driveway. This went on for about 6 months. I had bloods tests, multiple MRI's, X-rays, went to an orthopedic specialist, a neuro surgeon and spinal specialist, etc. with absolutely 0 answers. Within 20 minutes Anastasia diagnosed the problem, and within an hour she significantly improved the function in my legs. I truly cannot express how grateful I am for her. I nearly cried at my first appointment from the realization that there was even a slight chance that I might be able to regain full function of my legs.  My legs are back to 100% and Anastasia also managed to fixed multiple other issues unrelated to the original problem for me throughout my time in PT with her. PLEASE go see her, you WILL NOT regret it! She's known (fondly) in my family as a "witch doctor" for her amazing skills!

It has been such a great experience every time I have a PT session. Everything is done in such a professional manner while making you feel comfortable and at ease. I walked in with pain and 3 sessions later my pain was gone. I recommend everyone to at least experience one session so you will not regret it.

- Jose C.

The best physical therapist in the area! I am a dancer so I have to sustain daily activities that cause trauma and sometimes injuries to my body. Nastia has helped me get so much better on my knee, ankles and got so much stronger through the process. For all the desk and office workers who suffer back pain and or tight shoulders & neck out there, she also works magic! Give it a try and it's really, really worth your time! Nastia is super kind & helpful, you’ll love your experience!

Anastasia did the pre and post surgery PT for my knee. She approached my therapy in a holistic manner and was the one who advised me to seek an Orthopedic Doctor once she determined my issues were deeper in nature. Her efforts expedited a surgical solution and her post surgical PT had me walking unassisted six weeks after surgery. Highly recommend and can honestly not thank her enough!

- Jose H.

The care I received was very attentive, and it resulted in being healed of my knee and hip pain a lot quicker than the normal timeline. I no longer have the pains and I continue to follow what was instructed to me daily. I highly recommend going to MVMT if you need any physical therapy for orthopedic and sports injuries.

- Christina

This was exactly what I needed! After years of not paying attention to my body, it finally forced me to start noticing it with persistent knee pain. MVMT was quickly able to diagnose the pain and determine that it was caused by some issues in my back. While I was skeptical at first, I took the exercises in stride and immediately saw and felt improvement in my knee pain. After a few weeks, we were able to completely eliminate it! This was the most educational, fun, and personal physical therapy experience I’ve ever had.

- Alex

The service was amazing! I am a full time dancer and I had to perform that night after my body was really hurting and after getting work done I was able to perform and dance for hours after.

- Tina

I can’t believe how much bad posture affects my everyday life. She took the time to find the spots I was messed up in and gave me custom plans to fix them. They totally worked and she’s great at following up! Highly recommend.

- Sam

As a Salsa choreographer/performer and trainer, I often push my body to its limits, especially when executing partner stunt choreography. Nastia at MVMT Physical Therapy has been exceptionally effective at addressing my injuries and providing methods that allow me to maintain my body and continue executing at my highest level. Nastia is articulate, knowledgeable, thorough, and committed to her patient’s progress. I highly recommend her to anyone whose livelihood or daily routine is hindered by injury.

- James

Love how attentive Nastia is. I most definitely recommend her to all my friends. I always tell her to fix me when I can’t walk or am in pain and she does. It’s incredible that I am able to feel relief on the spot. Especially being a dancer she understands how much I need my body to function properly and appreciate how convenient she makes everything.

- Yvonne

Today’s session was awesome!! I appreciate the extra time and attention. It also helps that you understand dance. Personally…it’s [the] first time I’ve worked with a PT that actually has [a] dance background and actively dances.

- James C.

W physician. I thought it was just gonna be a another massage but she actually took the time to understand my problem with my ankle and make a customized plan to heal it. Super professional and would 10/10 go again. My ankle feels a lot better.

- Rahma

Very helpful, knowledgeable and professional. Helped my knee a ton, and even gave me advice regarding possibly becoming a PT myself.

- Neil

I injured myself working out about a month ago, and when I went to two different doctors that both told me the same thing, my gut instinct told me that their diagnosis was not right. The doctors believed it was a pulled muscle, but based on how I injured myself, I thought it was related to a disc or a nerve in my neck. With Anastasia's help, we confirmed that was the issue and she prescribed me stretches to do at home. Slowly but surely I started to heal and I finally began to get some relief. Anastasia took the time to help me figure out what was going on and continued to check in with me throughout my healing process. If you choose to go with MVMT, you will not regret it - you are without a doubt in good hands!
