In the past, athletic trainers were reserved for elite athletes. We are bringing these advanced techniques to you.
We always work with one client at a time. Many other practices in the healthcare industry work split their attention with multiple clients. We only focus on you.
Myo-Fit uses the time we have with you to educate, treat, strengthen, heal, and enable you to optimize your movement
We help reduce recovery time with techniques that protect the affected area while keeping the rest of your body active and mobile.
Our Downtown Indy location has moved. We are now at 922 N Capitol Ave, next to Naptown Fitness

Myo-Fit Mobility & Therapy is health and wellness company. It is composed of athletic trainers who perform hands-on therapy, rehabilitation and other forms of healing and treatment techniques. Typically, athletic trainers have been reserved for treating and healing athletes to keep them on the field of play or to return them to play as quickly and safely as possible. In the field, athletic trainers are under pressure to get results, so they have developed effective cutting edge tools and techniques that help people quickly overcome injuries and correct structural and chronic imbalances that limit their performance. Unfortunately, these techniques have been limited to elite athletes.
We are bringing this care to the general population. We believe that the definition of an athlete is a person who moves. We all move and places physical stress on our bodies. We work with adult athletes, amateur athletes, people who want to improve their daily functions and those who want to be pain-free. We help them heal from injuries, correct postures and imbalances, perform hands-on therapies to prevent injuries and educate our clients on the nature of their body and how to treat it on their own. If you fit into any of these categories, we want to see you!
I’ve consistently beaten my body up preparing for the Open, Regionals, and even the Games. Myo-Fit has helped me with a plethora of injuries but more importantly they have made me understand the importance of mobility. (more…)

I could not be happier with the progress we have made and continue to make. I feel more educated about my body and how to maintain the progress we have made working together. (more…)
Can't say enough or recommend more highly this team. Had some issues arise from crossfit with my left shoulder/ rotator cuff. Just the mention of it concerned me and my initial thought was surgery. However, over the last few weeks they have worked a miracle and the progress has been amazing. (more…)

As defined by the APTA and AAOMPT, manual therapy is a clinical approach utilizing skilled hands-on techniques, including but not limited to manipulation/mobilization to assess and treat soft tissues and joint structures for the purpose of controlling pain, increasing range of motion (ROM), reducing or eliminating soft tissue inflammation, inducing relaxation, improving contractile and non-contractile tissue repair, extensibility, and stability, facilitating movement and improving function.
Manual Therapy encompasses any type of therapy provided by hands or through the assistance of hand held instruments. This therapy is provided by licensed healthcare providers, mainly athletic trainers (ATCs), physical therapists (DPT, MSPT), occupational therapists (MSOT), chiropractors (DCs) and physical therapy assistants (PTAs). These health care providers have been trained and have a vast understanding of anatomy, physiology, biomechanics and musculoskeletal injuries and conditions that occur in the body.
Treatments can involve joint mobilizations (moving joints in specific motions to regain movement and decrease discomfort), stretching, soft tissue mobilization(passive movement of a body part against therapist’s pressure, pressure point release, active movement of a body part against therapist’s pressure), myofascial release, muscle energy, instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization (IASTM) or any combination of these types of therapies. We use these techniques to improve mobility, function, muscle activation and to decrease pain, discomfort, weakness and recovery time. The term soft tissue therapy is synonymous with manual therapy.
There are several conditions that can be treated with manual therapy. We see many common issues some of which include the following:
