"My experience at Manual Therapy Associates has been amazingly healing, not only for my neck problem but my entire back, and a wonderful side miracle was the difference in my TMJ. Sandy's and Tien's knowledge, expertise and caring natures are a unique experience in my life and my healing. Thank you."
“When you want a ‘hands-on’ approach to your PT treatment, I know of no therapists who get better results with manual medicine than Tien and Sandy Do.”
"Lee was suffering from whiplash and for two years got no relief from a variety of neurologists, chiropractors, physical therapists, etc. Only when he saw Tien did he solve the problem. Tien has magic in his hands. He can watch you walk in and know what's wrong. We're active people - skiing, biking, horseback riding. Whatever sports injury we have, we go to Tien. We will drive 4 hours one way to see Tien rather than 10 minutes to anyone else. We have referred many people to Tien and he has helped everyone."
“Manual Therapy Associates gives my patients tremendous relief that rarely compares to any other therapists. They have talent which I call a gift to Heal.”
"The treatment I have received at MTA by Sandra Do has improved the quality of my life tremendously. I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia four years ago and had pain throughout my body. I am 90% improved and now able to lead a normal life. Sandy is awesome!"
“I have referred patients to Manual Therapy Associates for a wide variety of somatic complaints and I have found them to be quite thorough and capable therapists. My patients have always been impressed with their results, and I have found them to be a great asset to my rehabilitation and pain control programs.”
