So, one day you’re pop-locking and dropping it at the club on Friday night, and the next you’re spending Friday night restocking your upstairs and downstairs bottles of Ibuprofen. What gives? Your body — it gives out. Before scheduling a knee replacement at age 35, consider this option: Restore Physiotherapy with Dr. Mac McLaurin.
So, What is Restore Physiotherapy?
At Restore Physiotherapy in Pinehurst, Mac provides patients with manual therapy. From soft tissue work to dry needling to in-office therapeutic exercise, his techniques are focused on achieving one thing: results.
Just ask Mary Ellen Buckley, whose range of motion in her shoulder from a torn rotator cuff kept her awake at night and hindered her from doing things she loves. Desperate for relief, she made an appointment for surgery. But first, she paid a visit to Mac.
The rotator cuff tear was the type of injury that Mac prides himself on helping clients overcome. Through in-house, hands-on treatment and at-home exercises, Mary Ellen’s range of motion came back — and after just two weeks, she canceled the surgery.
“It’s made such a change in my life that I could almost weep,” she says. “I was desperate to do something to try and feel better, and figured since I had nothing to lose, I would see what Mac could do. I’m so glad I did.”
Not Your Average Doc
Mac doesn’t believe in writing a prescription and sending patients home with a list of exercises that you could easily find on Google. For him, it’s a personal, customized experience.
“The goal is not to just figure out what’s wrong, or why you’re having a problem,” he says. “Treatments start at your first visit. We’re going to treat the issue, test to make sure the treatment is working, and treat again.”
Mac provides plenty of one-on-one attention to his clients. At Restore Physiotherapy, you’ll have a room to yourself — with plenty of time between you and other patients for extra sanitation. The practice is open by appointment only, and masks are required to be worn by all who enter.
“There are a lot of things that go into issues that seem simple, like neck or knee pain,” Mac says. “I love being able to determine the real problem and help clients fix it. The best moments are when someone comes in and says they’re once again able to get down on the floor with their grandkids. It’s fun to see what we are able to accomplish together.”
Ready to Schedule That Appointment?
If you’re experiencing pain, schedule a free discovery visit at Restore Physiotherapy. Mac will spend 15-20 minutes determining if physical therapy is right for you and explaining how the process works. No commitment is necessary.
“If you’re feeling something, come in,” he says. “It could be something big or something small — either way, we’ll try to nip it in the bud.”
Restore Physiotherapy operates outside of the traditional insurance model, though payment for some treatments may be reimbursed by insurance providers. Clients can pay a flat fee for each visit or purchase a package at a discounted rate. Unlike larger clinics, which offer limited options, Mac can work with you to find the right fit.
