What Mauna Offers

At Mauna Physical Therapy, we have the skills and knowledge needed to get you back to doing what you love.  We understand that moving freely allows you to live freely.  We don't just try to "fix" a problem.... we asses the whole body and address the root cause of each individual injury/ issue.

Holistic Hands-On Therapies

Dr. Madeleine Child has continuously expanded her understanding and practice of manual therapies since beginning her work as a PT.  She offers a variety of techniques including myofascial release, trigger point release, pin-and stretch tissue mobilization, proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation, and joint mobilizations.  These hands-on treatments facilitate "normalized" mechanics and expedite the healing process. 

Return to Sport

As an athlete and yogi, Dr. Child understands how important it is to participate in the activities we love.  After an injury or set-back, reclaiming your strength, balance, agility, and overall function are paramount in allowing for you to return to swimming, paddling, hiking, biking, climbing, etc.  Dr. Child will create an individualized program to allow for you  to meet your specific goals.

Pain Management 

Whether you are a high-level athlete, a casual hiker, or just want to drive, relax, or move around comfortably, chronic and acute pain can be debilitating.  With a combination of hands-on therapies, education, and individualized exercises, Dr. Child will treat you as a whole to learn how to minimize and manage your pain, so that you can live your best life.
