About the Owner

 

Dr. Mary Ebanks-Nunaihed earned her clinical Doctorate of Physical Therapy from the University of St. Augustine for Health Sciences in 2011.  She graduated with Advanced Manual Training, evaluating and treating the spine, joints, extremities and soft tissue. 
 

Mary has gained extensive experience during her years of practice, treating patients of all ages who present with various surgical and non-surgical orthopedic conditions, as well as neurological conditions. In addition, she has completed certifications and attends pertinent continuing education courses that increase her knowledge and clinical skill set.

 

Mary is also a National Pilates Certified Teacher (NPCT) and received her training through Core Advancement at Pilates in the Grove. Mary is passionate about helping her patients/clients achieve their goals, whether it be to improve level of function post-injury and/or surgery, improve core and postural stability to prevent injury, or re-educate muscles due to poor mechanics and/or injury. She views every patient case as unique and provides individualized, one-on-one care to ensure the best possible outcome. 


Mary began her career in the Health and Fitness industry in 1990, when she was hired as a fitness professional at the world-renowned Spa At Doral Resort. During that time she instructed various exercise classes, gave lectures regarding topics of health and wellness, as well as being a personal trainer to VIP’s and celebrities. Mary’s desire to help people achieve their goals of well-being is what inspired her to become a physical therapist.
