At Mind Body Physio, our patients achieve optimal health and performance with fewer visits than at traditional PT clinics. This is because we provide private, one on one appointments. We embody a root cause model of care making sure to address all components of the healing process rather than just treating symptoms.
Mind Body Physio is a fee for service clinic. We do not have contracts with insurance which allows us to dictate treatments based on our clinical findings, patient values, and what we believe to be the best plan of care. We do accept FSA and HSA cards as forms of payment.
All of the Mind Body Physio therapists have pursued continuing education and additional qualifications beyond their Doctor of Physical Therapy Degrees. Our therapists treat all musculoskeletal related impairments but do specialize in different areas which allows us to pair you with a therapist who is best suited for your needs. The Mind Body Physio therapists “walk the walk” and are avid fitness/health enthusiasts who focus on a full body approach to healing.
Upon your initial evaluation, one of our therapists will perform a detailed musculoskeletal assessment which may include the examination of soft tissue health, joint motion, strength, skeletal alignment, functional mobility, and/or a movement pattern screening.
After your evaluation we will provide treatments which may include manual therapy (joint mobilizations, instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization, deep tissue massage, stretching, manipulations, kinesiotaping, etc.), dry needling which may include electrical stimulation if appropriate, and/or theraupetic exercise treatments in a gym to address impairments found in the evaluation.
Dry needling may be included after your physical therapy evaluation. If you are only interested in dry needling and not in a full physical therapy evaluation we also offer this as a separate service. Electrical stimulation may be included if appropriate and a soft tissue evaluation will be performed prior to a dry needling treatment.
Ethan, founder of Mind Body Physio, began his passion for health and exercise while still in high school. Initially his focus was in Mixed Martial Arts, however in 2007 he had a severe motorcycle accident that left him unable to continue MMA training. Unwilling to stop exercising, he began focusing primarily on weightlifting and bodybuilding while recovering from his multiple ankle surgeries. Bodybuilding became his passion, and for over 10 years now he has been competing, personal training, coaching, and furthering his understanding of how to optimize the body. His passion for exercise, biomechanics, education, and helping others to achieve their goals led him to pursue his Doctor of Physical Therapy Degree. Ethan graduated from Bellarmine University with his DPT degree in 2016. After graduating and realizing the limitations in the typical Western medicine Physical Therapy model, Ethan knew he wanted to improve the standard of care for his patients. He and his wife created Mind Body Physio, where patients receive private one on one treatments, which allow his patients to heal faster with less visits than in a traditional physical therapy clinic. Ethan is a COMT (Certified Orthopedic Manual Therapist) through Maitland and is currently pursuing an AAOMPT Fellowship with the Maitland-Australian Physiotherapy Organization which is recognized worldwide as the highest level of clinical excellence in Orthopedic Manual Therapy.
