Sade Meeks, MS, RD


Imagine waking up and taking business calls from the beach. It sounds like a win, win right? Well, Mariana Tondo is definitely winning! Despite being thousands of miles away from her office in Nashville, TN, Mariana can still conduct business and see clients, all while visiting her family in Brazil, due to the convenience of Virtual Physical Therapy.

Mariana Tondo, a physical therapist with nine years of experience, is the owner of the Virtual Physical Therapy practice, VIRT. She specializes in musculoskeletal disorders, which are injuries or disorders of the muscles, nerves, tendons, joints, cartilage, and spinal discs. Mariana is certified in the Mckenzie Method of Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy (MDT), a proven way to assess, treat, and prevent muscle and joint issues. This method can empower clients to improve pain and recover from injuries without any expensive medical equipment, diagnostic imaging, injections, or surgery. So, Mariana is not the only one winning; her clients are too! To prove it, here are more Pros of Virtual PT.

Pros of Virtual PT:

  • Save Money
  • Detailed Care and Attention
  • Fewer Appointments
  • More Autonomy
  • Convenient
  • Effective

Virtual Physical Therapy may be new to you, so I thought it would be a good idea to walk you through a session.

During the first session, Mariana will assess the client by asking a series of questions. This helps her gain a greater understanding of the client's pain and musculoskeletal conditions. She also guides the client through a series of exercises to better understand things like the client's range of motion, posture, and pain level. After assessing the client, she can demonstrate and teach the client exercises that will best address the problem. Though the sessions are once a week for one hour, the client will have access to the Physical Therapist anytime! With the touch of their fingertips, Mariana is just one message or call away! (Let's add greater accessibility to that list of Pros!)

After sessions, Mariana provides the client with homework assignments. Don't worry; this doesn't involve any book work. It merely consists of repeating prescribed exercises from home. Also, these homework assignments come with all the answers! Mariana will provide videos demonstrating all the exercises you need to know to ensure the moves' accuracy. She will set you up for success.
