What do you do?
St. John Neuromuscular Therapy, Ida P. Rolf Structural Integration, Visceral Manipulation, Personal Injury, Dance/Athletic Injury, and On-Set Massage and Emergency Injury Treatment. Mitch Gries determines where the problem is coming from and address it. This is not physical therapy, where the patient typically is given a course of sessions to strengthen weak muscles. Mitch Gries first gets rid of spasm, muscular hyper-constrictions and ischemia, giving proper integrity to your muscle tone, and then he restores flexibility and range of motion. After completing these most important stages of rehabilitation you will then be able to resume working out fully and living your life with much less or no pain.
What happens in the first appointment?
Mitch Gries does an exam, measurements, and treatment. He also can review any and all past MRI’s and X-rays. Having the films would be very helpful, but if you can only get the report that is helpful too; the more information the better.
Who will be my therapist?
Mitch Gries will personally handle your case. Mitch has been in private practice since 1977, where he began treating world-class professional dancers. He is highly trained to treat most pain conditions.
What do I need to provide if I am involved in a Personal Injury/Worker’s Comp Insurance Case?
Before you are first seen at the clinic you will need a prescription from your doctor. That prescription must have:
- Prescription is written for “Manual Therapy,” “Neuromuscular Therapy,” or “Soft Tissue Treatment.”
- Diagnosis codes for the areas needed for treatment.
- Duration and Frequency of visits, e.g. 2-3 times a week for 6 weeks.
- Physician’s NPI number.
- Mitch Gries can work on a lien with a small copayment
Does health insurance pay for treatment?
Mitch Gries is able to take certain insurances.
What Is Pain?
Pain is a signal from your body that something is wrong.

Mitch Gries specializes in identifying the source of your pain by utilizing the most up-to-date non-invasive treatment available. He will identify the problem and develop a protocol to not only eliminate the pain but prevent future occurrences.
