Why Choose MAC Physical Therapy Group

You will see the same therapist from your evaluation and every follow-up appointment thereafter. The treatment plan created will be individual to you to address your Sciatica Pain Treatment specific goals and help you heal from your injury.

We believe heavily in educating our patients; what you do outside the office is as important as what you do inside the office. Every aspect of the treatment that is to be provided is unique to you, and no two people are alike; therefore, no two treatments are the same.


We strive to provide a higher level of care than you are used to. We believe that this higher level of care is what should be expected of you when seeking out a physical therapist. We schedule appointments every 30 minutes, so you will be one-on-one with your therapist during that 30 minutes to address all questions and concerns while receiving treatment.

If you are skeptical that physical therapy can help you with your pain or have been to physical therapy and been disappointed, please reach out to us, as we know you will be happy with your treatment here.

Once you complete your sessions, we do not believe you are done improving to reach optimal health. Therefore, we offer continuation programs after discharge with our personal trainers to help our clients continue to grow and reach their goals.
