An established assessment and treatment method for a variety of musculoskeletal problems.
Established over decades of research, this Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy (MDT) method relies on four concepts: assessment, classification, treatment, and prevention. An initial appointment with a trained South Sound Physical Therapy provider takes no more than 30 to 45 minutes, and begins with making a detailed history of your symptoms and habits. You’ll then be guided through specific bodily movements and resting postures to test your strength and flexibility and to see how they influence your comfort. This enables your therapist to identify pain patterns, which in turn helps them develop a treatment plan specific to your body, and gets you on back on the road to being your best self.
