Teaching Clinic

MTI Physical Therapy was founded with the mission to create clinical teaching centers for advanced 1-3 year post-graduate training programs in orthopaedics, sports and manual therapy. Our practice model is that of one patient per hour, compared to an industry standard of two or even three. Focused one-to-one care creates an environment for uninterrupted or unrushed care, allowing the therapist to utilize the acquired advanced skills and cutting edge techniques. Aligned with our primary mission, all clinics are filled with state of the art tables, benches and equipment that compliments our advanced training

MTI PT is affiliated with The Ola Grimsby Institute (OGI) for our post-graduate seminars and programs. The OGI is one of the largest post-graduate institutes for seminars and advanced degrees in orthopaedic physical therapy in the world. MTI PT is proud to employ OGI instructors, including all three owners of MTI PT. These instructors regularly teach seminars, residency and fellowship programs within the MTI PT clinical locations, as well as in different cities throughout the United States, Europe, Scandinavia and Asia.
