What We Treat

At PMPT, we believe in a holistic approach to physical therapy. We treat the specific areas of the body mentioned but through the lens of how that part is connected to the body as a whole – the PMPT Whole Body Approach.

The PMPT Whole Body Approach

Unlike standard physical therapy services that treat a single body part when an issue arises, PMPT treats our patients based on the PMPT Whole Body Approach methodology. The reality is each bone, muscle, joint, and ligament in your body does not work alone. They work cohesively to enable your everyday activity. If this is the case, then why would we isolate body parts when treating an issue? 

PMPT takes a look at all the connecting components that may be affecting your troubled area and treats them as a whole. We do this by first starting with breathwork, then sensing the body and issue at hand, and finishing with movement training to activate and heal the impacted body part – Reset, Reorganize, Reload.

How We Treat


We start each session with an assessment to guide our thought process.  Reset is the manual therapy division of our system where we will use our hands for soft tissue, joint mobilization/manipulation, and myofascial decompression with cupping to “reset” the system.  We couple many of our techniques with breathing to allow our clients to reach a parasympathetic state (“rest and digest” aka calming state).


The most important aspect of our session is here.  Our training in breathwork helps align the ribcage and pelvis.  While most people want go straight to hip, shoulder, or knee mobility, this need does not have a higher priority than organizing our ribcage and pelvis because they are the foundation of our body.  Once organized, performing mobility exercises for the hips, shoulders, knees, etc. can now be optimized.   

How we organize there has everything to do with how we stabilize and ground into the floor. 

The act of breathing, which happens >25,000x/day, is the most important movement pattern that is getting ignored.  Think about what in your body and life can change IF this is optimized with postural efficiency?


This is where the fun is.  Once our clients continue to demonstrate consistency and their body is responding well to the reorganization phase, we begin loading movement patterns with weights to create more resiliency

This is also the phase of our session where we implement more sport-specific movements, plyometrics, etc. Most clients that have had previous therapy often stop treatments after pain has subsided, but unfortunately that doesn’t prepare you for future injury mitigation.  Therefore, loading the body is absolutely crucial for performance and injury mitigation.
