Mary Schmutz, PT
Mary Schmutz has been a physical therapist for 30+ years. She began as a biology major at NCSU and UNC-Chapel Hill followed by her acceptance into Old Dominion University’s physical therapy program. Throughout her years as a PT Mary has attended professional seminars including manual therapy courses provided by Michigan State’s osteopathic school of medicine; functional movement courses provided by the Gary Gray Institute and a variety of seminars covering sport-related injuries, Rock tape; neuromuscular causes affecting acute and chronic injuries; balance/vestibular impairments; spinal dysfunctions, chronic pain and lymphedema.
During her years living in Virginia, Mary served as an instructor for a physical therapy assistant program and received recognition as an orthopedic specialist. She worked on-site and in-clinics with recreational, high school and college athletes. After returning to the CNY area Mary did a short stint in outpatient before providing home care services. Within the this environment she utilized her variety of skills to successfully treat the elderly, patients with acute post-traumatic injuries, joint replacements and spinal surgeries as well as an increasing number of lymphedema and balance/vestibular dysfunctions.
The common thread connecting her years of experience is the recognition of how the various systems within our bodies affects our response to injuries and over-stress to our immune system. From teenagers to adults; from competitive to recreation athletes; to people with life-long disabilities and her own injuries as an active person have added to her wealth of knowledge and understanding on how to assess and successfully treat patients. The focus of her evaluations is to identify the mechanism of injury and to provide a treatment plan that will help the body heal allowing each person to achieve their goals.
Mary’s goal is to offer a high-quality level of care achieving best results in the most efficient time. In comparison to traditional PT clinics Mary and her partner, Jennifer Delaney PT guarantee the time to provide one-on-one services with continuity of care based on best practices including an emphasis on preventive medicine.
