At Movement Physical Therapy, our physical therapists use Applied Functional Science (AFS) to observe, manipulate, and identify dysfunction.  We are trained in several disciplines of treatment and are equipped with various tools to improve your condition.

Each of our Chicago locations offers physical therapy and rehabilitation for a variety of diagnoses. Your PT will create an assessment, establish a treatment plan, and customize programs based on your individual needs and goals.

Blood Flow Restriction (BFR)

Increase strength without strain on the muscle.

BFR allows you to receive the benefits of strength training without the stress on your tissue that may be healing during a recent injury or surgery.

BFR has been utilized with athletes who want to improve performance and many other scenarios to increase strength and prevent atrophy

Dry Needling

Target and alleviate pain not tangible with other tools.

We use dry needling as one part of a larger treatment plan for our patients. Dry needling helps speed up our patient’s return to active rehabilitation.

We use a threadlike needle that penetrates the skin and stimulates underlying myofascial trigger points and muscular connective tissues. The needle allows us to target tissues that are not tangible. 


Relieve pain and provide support where you need it.

A taping technique to provide support to muscles and joints without restricting your body’s range of motion.
The tape helps relieve pain while providing support exactly where you need it. It will also lengthen the benefits of manual therapy administered within our office.

Graston Technique

A fast and effective way of relieving your pain.

Graston technique is a faster and more effective way of relieving your pain than a massage. We use specially designed stainless-steel instruments with unique edges and angles to deliver an effective means of therapy. It’s an alternative technique to manipulate soft tissue. Graston generates a response from your cells to repair and strengthen muscle tissue. This helps you get back to pain-free movement and function.

OptoGait (Gait Analysis)

Measure your running or walking pattern to identify problems. 

Discover issues in your stride and improve with treatment and corrective exercises. In 30 minutes we can measure your running or walking pattern objectively and accurately. An easy-to-read report displays data from your movements. The data allows us to identify asymmetries between your legs instantly. From there, we can develop a plan to correct movement patterns and treat imbalances and begin a proactive approach to prevent pain and injuries.
