Pierson Physical Therapy

Pierson Physical Therapy, offering physical therapy, body mechanics and postural training, sports/strength programs and wellness promotion Pierson PT offers a strategic, comprehensive approach to patient care that assesses the body as a whole through a hands on, individualized approach.

Although it may be pain, tightness, or an injury that causes you to seek treatment, there may be other (often overlooked) factors that contribute: a long forgotten injury, a damaging habit or posture, lack of balance or harmony in body systems, or simply inefficient movement during day to day activities. Treatment is not focused on pain and inability, but on efficiency and potential. An assessment and plan of treatment is developed within the vision that every individual has untapped existing potential; goals are not focused on restoration of “normal” function, but on achieving “optimal” function.

Operating as usual


When life gets difficult, when the world seems congested, when the indoor existence of life in the city feels like handcuffs, find a way to unwind and recreate yourself. So blessed to be able to offer outdoor manual therapy sessions. It’s pretty great -

I have moved to downtown McKinney! I have always envisioned my practice in a comfortable space that allows for an “exhale” from the world outside. This is my attempt at beckoning a collaborative effort between areas of wellness that I know to be helpful; including manual therapy, yoga, training, and massage therapy, among others.

Come as you are, and let’s continue your journey towards vitality and wellness. Also, let me know ahead of time if you want coffee and I’ll get some brewing 🙂

Healing Foot Pain - Focus on Function - IPA Physio

A great write up on foot function and exercises to get things moving in the right direction


ipa.physio Your foot is important. It is your base of support. We, as a culture, do not take care of our feet. Learn how to prevent and/or recover from foot pain.

For all their risks, opioids had no pain-relieving advantage in a yearlong clinical trial — Los Angeles Times


LA Times just reported on a randomized control trial that found no difference in opioids (hydrocodone, etc) compared to over the counter medication with regards to pain related function over the span of 12 months.

Yet some report opioids claim 115 American lives on average every day.

I’ll bet there are some pretty wealthy people that weren’t very happy when this study was published...

apple.news For years, doctors turned to opioid painkillers as a first-line treatment for chronic back pain and aches in the joints.


In defining any movement dysfunction, you must define the problem in light of its interaction with the rest of the body.

Knee pain (particularly on the inside aspect), hip pain, and back pain are very often a result of the lack of engagement of foot/ankle stabilizers.

This is a picture of a patient who’s problem was solved not by orthotics, but by training and manual treatment. YOU ARE NOT THE PROBLEM, how you use your body may be the problem.

My hope for this year is not dependent upon success. My goal is to stay out of the gray twilight. Here’s to each of us resisting the temptation to choose the easy route, the clear cut path, the instant gratification. Not for the sake of saying that we did, but for the sake of our future self. 2018 - the year of grit, audacity, focus, and intention. Cheers!


Do not wait until you are in pain to protect your body. You may or may not be aware of the repetitive stresses you encounter every day. Be well, be efficient. If you don't know what that means, ask!

Lost Posture: Why Some Indigenous Cultures May Not Have Back Pain


www.npr.org There are a few populations in the world where back pain hardly exists. One woman thinks she has figured out why, and she's sharing their secrets. Have Americans forgotten how to stand properly?

It's hard to live to your potential, I'm encouraged by my patients who choose to do so.
