Dr. Meg Pezzino, PT, DPT with MovementX helped me diagnose, treat, and rehab a running-related injury. She helped put me back together and become a faster runner than before the injury. An awesome doc and person; I highly recommend her! 2 years and several marathons later, I’m still recalling helpful cues and form drills to help stave off injury. Thank you, Meg!”

“I had a running evaluation with Dr. Scott McAfee, PT, DPT from MovementX. He was so thorough, and he provided me both on the spot recommendations for improvement and a follow up comprehensive running report with exercises to build my strength and speed. My running has improved significantly. I am fully sold on MovementX as a great team of PTs who are totally committed to your health and well being.”
