Meet Our Team
Dr. Mauricio Trujillo
Dr. Mauricio Trujillo, commonly referred to as Dr. Mo, earned his bachelor’s degree in Biology from Kean University. He then moved on to Stony Brook University to pursue his doctorate degree in Physical Therapy. Dr. Mo completed his clinical rotations of acute rehab at Trinitas Hospital, pediatric rehab at AHRC in Long Island, and two Orthopedic rotations at JFK Medical Center and Industrial Strength and Fitness.
Continuing with post graduate education, Dr. Mo has studied in the fields of vestibular rehabilitation, mechanical diagnosis and treatment of the lumbar spine through the McKenzie Institute. He also studied in treatment for the thoracic spine and diaphragmatic breathing, and the Selective Functional Movement Assesment (SFMA), which addresses dysfunctional movements in order to regain full functional capacity.
Recently, Dr. Mo trained under John Iams, a pioneer in Physical Therapy who created Primal Reflex Release Technique (PRRT). Dr. Mo is one of the few physical therapists in NJ that practices this technique. By accompanying this new method of physical therapy and pain relief, he is able to effectively treat chronic conditions from headaches to plantar fasciitis. In most cases, patients will see a 75% improvement after the first visit.

Michael completed his clinical rotations of orthopedic rehab and acute burn care at Saint Barnabas Hospital, outpatient sports rehab and aquatic therapy at Princeton Fitness and Wellness Center, and sub-acute rehab at The Cranberry Center in Monroe, NJ.
Michael has furthered his studies in the various fields of outpatient care, including primal reflex release technique, postural restoration, and the assessment and treatment of various temporomandibular joint dysfunctions (TMJ). He also holds certifications in Functional Movement Screening (FMS) used to identify limitations or asymmetries in seven fundamental movements, Selective Functional Movement Assessment (SFMA) designed to clinically assess these seven movement patterns in those with known musculoskeletal pain, and is a certified level I and II natural trainer through Monkey Bar Gymnasium, which focuses on body weight training and restorative yoga.
Most recently, Michael has obtained his certification in contemporary cupping methods through the International Cupping Therapy Association. This ancient art form has provided a new and unique approach for treating stubborn dysfunctions such as myofascial restrictions, fibromyalgia, cellulite, postoperative pain, and many more chronic and acute conditions.
