At MMA & Sports Rehab, we pride ourselves with detailed examination to evaluate our patient. Our physical therapist’s evaluation includes observation of static and movement patterns, pain provocation tests, active, passive, and resisted tests, specific joint tests, specific ligament tests if appropriate, specific neurologic testing, and functional testing. Rather than simply focusing on the actual painful/affected area, our Arlington physical therapists examine a patient as a “whole person,” determining the source of the problem/tissue dysfunction and determine how the surrounding joints and various tissues can affect the current impairments. We correlate all the findings and provides a specific physical therapy or manual therapy diagnosis, in addition to developing a specific treatment plan for the patient.

Techniques we use

Our unique approach to sports rehab and physical therapy


At MMA & Sports Rehab, we incorporate the STEP principle as part of our therapeutic exercise dosage and prescription. There are no cookie cutter approaches, as each patient receives individualized treatment and specific therapeutic exercises based on their diagnosis.


We implement a variety of Manual Therapy techniques as part of our treatment approach, including but not limited to joint mobilizations, joint manipulations, soft tissue mobilizations, trigger point release, active release technique, strain-counterstrain, MWM, and myofascial release.


We develop personalized Home Exercise Programs for each patient. As the patient appropriately progresses with rehab, treatment sessions become focused on the patient's specific end-goals and/or returning the patient to his or her sport-related activities.
