Client REVIEW



"From start to finish, Tru Method is the place to go to for physical therapy. This was the first time I needed physical therapy and not only were they highly recommended by my doctor, but several people advised me to give them a try and I’m so happy I did. From my very first appointment, I felt comfortable and relaxed. When you meet Mo, the owner, and Mike his assistant, you just know they care about you and try their hardest to get you to feel better. Even the girls behind the desk, Lucy and Tara, have a way of making you feel at home. Everyone at Tru Method is a true professional and I would highly recommend them to anyone who needs physical therapy."

Our Physical Therapy Services

Class 4 Laser

This is the use of infrared light through specific dosing to decrease inflammation, regenerate tissue, and wound healing. This process is called photobiomodulation.

Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM)

This is the technique of using specific tools to improve tissue mobility and decrease myofascial restrictions. (Myofascial is the tissue that surrounds and supports the muscles throughout your body.)

Cupping Therapy

This is the use of specific glass or plastic cups which creates a suction on your body’s surface. This promotes blood flow, decreases pain, and decreases inflammation.

Manipulations

This technique is used by trained professionals to improve range of motion, decrease pain, and decrease inflammation.

Body Tempering

This method is used to aid in recovery, restore mobility, and release myofascial restrictions. This is similar to foam rolling. In this case, the practitioner performs the technique.

Cryotherapy

Cryotherapy uses freezing, or near-freezing temperatures to facilitate in the rehabilitation process. The mechanism for this is for the blood to be drawn to the vital organs and then be dispersed with rich oxygenated blood to the rest of your body for healing.

Cryotherapy helps to accelerate healing, relieve and reduce pain, and reduce the signs of aging. It is a safe treatment and our movement experts will be happy to answer any questions or concerns you may have.

Where it all began

My name is Mauricio Trujillo. I formed Tru Method Physical Therapy back in 2013. Back in 2007, I began practicing and came to a crossroads. I had to decide if I wanted to continue to work for a very busy practice with no real growth for my future, or if I wanted to take a chance and go off on my own to give people a better product and experience. I took the chance. My wife was pregnant at the time and we had just purchased a house. I started doing home care and worked part-time at an office so that I could make ends meet. From everything I had learned in physical therapy, and all of my experiences (the good, and the bad), I wanted to build a method that would help people to get better, and enjoy doing it. Once I found a location, the rest is history. Tru Method Physical Therapy was formed.

About Us

Dr. Mauricio Trujillo

Dr. Mauricio Trujillo 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 the treatment for thoracic spine and diaphragmatic breathing. Dr. Mo has also 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. Most recently, Dr. Mo has completed various courses under the Spinal Manipulation Institute to better assist in the treatment of cervical, thoracic, and lumbosacral pain.

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 bodyweight training and restorative yoga.
