About The Movement Clinic

Nishal Patel is a Doctor of Physical Therapy and a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist.

The Movement Clinic Mission

Our goal at The Movement Clinic is to provide high quality, personalized care to each individual so they can get back on track in as little time as possible. All patients are seen on a 1-1 basis for a full hour to an hour and a half. Patients are never scheduled at the same time as anyone else and never passed on to another therapist or technician. Our mission is get our patients better, faster, in as few visits as possible. Emphasis is placed on patients owning their home exercise programs so that they are the ones in control of their progress through rehab and beyond.

Dr. Patel has done what I had given up hope could be done: permanently relieved my shoulder pain! I immediately began to see improvements, and over time my pain has been completely eliminated.

One of the most recognizable traits Nishal has is how passionate he is about his profession. His passion and excitement is very transparent. When he treats his patients, he genuinely listens to their story and effectively solves problems rather then symptoms.

Nishal's practice is never about the money, but rather about people. One of the many qualities that makes him a great physical therapist is his ability to customize exercise plans that work for you. I highly recommend you go to Nishal

I described the pain to him, and within five minutes of examination he identified the problem and prescribed a daily rehab exercise routine. Four weeks later my shoulder pain was gone!
