Matthew Wood, PT, MPT, is a licensed physical therapist and certified manual therapist. His clinical interests include rehabilitation of neck and lower back dysfunctions. He has been with OA since 2011.

I am a believer in making each patient interaction count. Whether it is hands-on treatment to decrease pain or improve mobility, exercise prescription, education, or therapist/patient goal setting, they are all equally important parts to optimize each session. I have found this approach improves overall satisfaction, and positive outcomes.”
