The Wall of Maccio

Maccio Physical Therapy proudly presented 4 research presentations at the recent 14th International Conference in Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy in San Francisco, California titled, “Application of Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy [MDT] on the Human Elbow,” “The Application of Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy in Failed Anterior Cervical Discectomy and Fusion: a case report,” “The Management of an Anterior Lumbar Derangement: a case report,” and “The Application of Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy to an Ankle Sprain: a case report.” These are 4 of the more recent research endeavors Maccio PT has been involved, which are being prepared for publication in various international journals. The feedback received from over 30 countries participating in the conference was excellent with great interest from new clinicians to senior McKenzie faculty members. Our superior outcomes and innovative extremity techniques were two of the highlights. Stay tuned for future projects of even greater scale.

MDT- Marathon Running With a Purpose


MDT was able to rapidly resolve six years of chronic running pain within one week:

"I have had six years of chronic hip and back pain. Running and working out were really uncomfortable and the pain would wake me up if I rolled over during the night. I’ve had unsuccessful general physical therapy and chiropractor treatment in the past for my symptoms. Then I came to Maccio Physical Therapy and within only one visit I was able to find a direction that successfully abolished my pain using the MDT method. Since then, I have completed a full marathon in Verdon, France without any pain and did not stop once!" - Jessica

How to Get Back To Doing The Things You Love To Do

"After many years of chronic progressing bilateral shoulder pain and knee pain I finally found Maccio Physical Therapy. I was so tired of being in pain. Julia was able to get my pain from moderate-severe at times down to mild or NO PAIN! In just a few sessions!  I was shocked and hesitant to believe that the pain could be managed so quickly and with such simple exercises. I was able to incorporate these exercises easily into my daily routine. Prior to Julia’s expertise, I was losing sleep due to the pain, sometimes unable to lift my arms off the bed without fierce pain. I can’t thank Julia and Maccio Physical Therapy enough for getting to the root of my problems. I never once thought that my pain could have anything to do with my poor posture and stiff. Now I know! I am so excited to feel like my 26 year old self again and get back to Metabolic Meltdown 4-5 times a week!! I have work to do. Thank you Julia and Maccio Physical Therapy for empowering me to be pain free!" -Laura

Sleeping Like a Baby



"For the past five months or so I have suffered from loss of sleep because of very annoying aching in my hip and thigh. I could not get into a position where the aching would stop. I really thought it was arthritis. I signed up for a free low back pain and sciatica workshop at Maccio Physical Therapy and was asking about my aching leg which only occurred at night. I made an appointment for a consultation. Joe Sr. showed me two exercises and had me do them every two hours. I was amazed with just one visit it was the first time I was ache free in months. Thank you so much, I can now sleep!"- Beverly

MDT Turning Heads Once Again

"I have tried several types of therapists to bring my neck back to a normal amount of flexibility. They were all expensive and time consuming. None made lasting change. I followed the exercises given to me by Maccio Physical Therapy. They were simple and easy. It didn’t seem possible that it would work. I was told it may take some time to improve. I was good with that. It took years to get this stiff. The exercises worked quickly to improve my mobility. The instructions that I got at follow-up appointments made the exercises more effective. I am surprised and amazed that it worked as well as it did. I have recommended it to friends and family!" - Patricia

Searching and Finding the Right Approach

"I had incredibly bad knee pain that radiated to my heel. Over the course of a month, the pain got progressively worse, to the point where it had affected every facet of my life. Work became tremendously difficult and I wasn't able to pursue my passions in life, namely, martial arts, hiking and snowboarding. The resulting psychological impact was substantial as well. I started thinking that this would be permanent and it would mark an end to participating in the activities that bring me so much joy.


I knew that the traditional approach of western medicine of treating symptoms was not right for me. I did not want pain meds or shots. I wanted to get to the root of the problem. I searched and found Maccio Physical Therapy and their holistic approach to rehabilitation really spoke to me. I was greeted with a smile at the front desk and met with Julia Tranquillo, my physical therapist. Julia took the time to get to assess my pain, my body and went the extra mile to really understand the importance of martial arts and snowboarding in my life. She set up a plan and took me through a series of exercises and stretches. To my astonishment, the pain subsided almost immediately. It was a miracle. 


Over the next couple of weeks, I met with Julia and Anastasia who rehabilitated my knee and provided spirited conversations about our shared interests and passions. My knee pain had continued to improve and by discharge, they had provided me with a wealth of knowledge and tools to prevent relapse. Being a healthcare provider myself, it was a huge learning experience to be on the receiving end of care. I was deeply touched and humbled by Julia and Anastasia's commitment to my success and well being. They had shown me the importance of empathy and offering an attentive ear to someone’s problem. Coupled with their wealth of knowledge and unwavering dedication, I was bound to succeed. Thank you Julia, Anastasia and the rest of the team at Maccio Physical Therapy!" -Matthew
