About Rebecca and MTN

Rebecca started Manual Therapy of Nashville in 2001, originally as PT@home.  She has been a physical therapist since graduating from the University of Maryland at Baltimore in 1993.  She worked in Colorado Springs, Denver, and Lebanon, TN prior to Nashville in orthopaedic settings.

Within 6 months of becoming a physical therapist she was introduced to manual therapy through the North American Institute of Orthopaedic Manual Therapy (NAIOMT) and immediately signed up for courses.  Between 1994 – 1999 she became Level III and Level IV manual therapy certified.  She finished her fellowship training in 2006 through NAIOMT and became a Fellow of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Manual Therapy in 2007.  She is a Faculty of NAIOMT.

Her treatment is focused on mechanical dysfunction (musculoskeletal problems – muscles and bones) and motor control re-training.

She usually treats patients for 1 hour and uses a variety of methods and tools to change the mechanics of the problem joints.  The patient’s role is vital to the ability of the body to heal;  exercises and self-treatment is integral.  She is not satisfied until her patients have been taught how to help treat themselves and how to help prevent further problems.

Her passion is healing, wellness and prevention of pain.   She loves to help her patients get back to what activity they love so that they can keep moving and enjoying life.  Her core message to patients and physical therapists is  LEARN.  THINK.  FEEL.  HEAL.

Besides her profession, she loves reading fiction, spending time with her family and friends in outdoor activities (camping, hiking, biking, swimming).
