“The Perfect Pt In Sd”

“My herniated disc has shown tremendous improvement, all because of the great work by Dr. Mark. Not only are the appointments themselves always productive, he gives plenty of great advice about how to continue progress outside the office. Top off the treatment experience with an extremely professional and friendly staff, and you get the perfect PT in SD!”

How We Achieve A Better Diagnosis with Less Discomfort


What is manual therapy? Manual therapy is a method physical therapy that involves the therapist feeling exactly how your body reacts to specific movement and exercises. A lot of pain and discomfort comes from lack of mobility or a small range of motion. Through simple movements and exercises, we’re able to get your body used to these motions again, reducing or completely removing your pain.

Manual therapy includes a detailed biomechanical assessment. This means that your therapist will watch and feel how you move in order to make the most accurate diagnosis possible. This leads to faster recovery times and improved outcomes.
