ABOUT US

Motion Stability is Atlanta’s leading center for the diagnosis and treatment of unresolved pain, as well as movement and performance rehabilitation.

Our goal is to aide you in resolving your pain by identifying the cause of your injury through our comprehensive approach to care, including thorough assessment and a customized treatment plan based on the unique ways you move. Our approach focuses not only on reducing your pain or dysfunction, but correcting and restoring your movement to allow you to live a pain free life. Our clinic model is designed to allow more individualized time with you, the patient, to enable us to fully understand and treat the complexities of your condition. We specialize in hands on techniques that restore your motion as well as providing you with exercises that are specifically tailored to your needs. We are not satisfied with interventions that just control your symptoms. We believe success is when your pain has been fully resolved, and your movement allows you to enjoy the life you want to live.

Since opening in 2006, we have been honored to provide care for patients across the spectrum of life. This includes the working professional, homemakers, athletes, performing artists, retirees and adolescents. We have had the privilege of working with professional athletes from the NFL, PGA Tour, WTA, NBA, WNBA, MLB, and Olympics. We also serve as the official physical therapy providers for the Atlanta Ballet and WNBA Atlanta Dream. Whatever your background may be, we are passionate about helping you understand your pain story and honored when you trust us to help you get back to living pain free.

The Faculty Practice is our out-of-network insurance practice option. The Faculty Practice is a sub-specialty practice comprised of specific Physical Therapists that not only provide patient care, but are also involved in teaching, publishing, and/or research in Physical Therapy.

Patients typically choose this practice when they are either:

  • Referred to work with a specific Faculty Therapist.
  • Seek more dedicated time per session to treat their condition.
  • Seek a more concierge-like service.
