MEG HENDERSON

Owner of Mt. Pleasant Office, women’s health specialist

I was lucky from an early age that I knew I wanted to be a physical therapist. I had a special needs little sister who impacted my life profoundly – she showed me the power of physical rehabilitation not only for her, but those around her.

This desire only grew stronger as I battled multiple knee injuries playing soccer in high school and college. I had a unique upbringing. My parents are both swiss born and moved to the US seeking new opportunity. I was actually born right here in Charleston. Yes I am a local…there are not many of us left!

I’ve lived in the Lowcountry my whole life attending both college of Charleston and MUSC for grad school. My entire career is built upon educating my patients on how amazing the body can be by giving them the tools to rehabilitate from injury and perform at their highest level.

My speciality in physical therapy is peeling away the layers of a physical injury or problem and getting to the root cause, which is not always what you think. I have a knack for finding the the perfect exercise to match the perfect patient. So when you see me, GET READY TO MOVE!

We are told too often by medical practitioners of our limitations and the things we can’t do. I’m on a mission to change that with a phenomenal team behind me. You’re here because you want something different, and you’ve found it.

This is the exact reason I started Made 2 Move. I aim to create a place where patients can feel better, get stronger, and DO MORE! Want to lift some barbells? I can help you do that. Want to run an ultra-marathon? I can help you do that. Want to play with your grandkids? I can help you do that.

My goal for you is to be completely free of any physical limitations. I NEVER want you to hear you say no…No, I can’t climb that hill. No I can’t go for a run. No I can’t lift that weight…

Yes, you can. And I will help you do it.

The world of pills, arbitrary surgeries, useless cortisone shots is over! Welcome to Made 2 Move!

Called to the coast, Meg moved from her hometown of Annapolis, MD, to Charleston after getting married and graduating from the Physical Therapy program at Marymount University.

As a competitive collegiate athlete, she coped with a variety of “over-use” injuries that fueled her desire to become a physical therapist. Although the original plan was to pursue medical school after graduation, Meg realized she wanted a stronger connection with her patients and was drawn to impacting lives through regained mobility and reclaimed active lifestyles.

With a renewed vision and refreshed passion, Meg joined the M2M team in 2017 launching its Mount Pleasant location. No longer burdened by 3rd-party-payers dictating treatment, she is on a mission to do whatever needs to be done to help women hone their healthiest bodies during pregnancy, postpartum and in the years beyond.

Meg focuses primarily on women’s health and fitness; more specifically, how to help her patients achieve their best selves with respect to the unique strengths and needs of the female body. In that vein, she is currently pursuing a Certificate of Achievement in Pelvic Physical Therapy – Pregnancy and Postpartum (CAPP-OB) through the American Physical Therapy Association.  

Motivated by what works, Meg is all about helping you find a path to fitness that you love and will stay the course with consistently.

Education & Credentials

Doctorate in Physical Therapy, Marymount University, 2008

Pursuing CAPP-OB, anticipated December 1, 2018

ASTYM Soft Tissue Therapy Certified, 2012

APTA Credentialed Clinical Instructor, 2015

DANE GIFFORD

Office manager, PTA, strength specialist

MEET
NATE JONES

Physical therapist, Clinic manager

Originally from Havre, MT, Dane first came to Charleston by way of the Air Force in 2002. Although he loved the Lowcountry life, his military service took him overseas to Germany and Hungary before bringing him back to the holy city with his beautiful wife, Stephanie, to pursue his career in Physical Therapy.

A longtime trainer and CrossFit coach, Dane realized the need for a deeper understanding of how people move and, more specifically, how they can move pain-free. Inspired by Kelly Starrett and The Mobility WOD, he dove into learning any and everything about movement and pain-free fitness.

Dane joined the M2M team in 2017 after hitting a wall with the current state of American healthcare. Disillusioned with the disease-management system’s disfunction for both practitioners and patients, he wanted to be part of a team that threw the red tape aside and focused solely on doing what needed to be done to people better.

A jack of many trades, Dane’s specialty is strength training, rehab and injury prevention. With a history as a strength coach before transitioning into physical therapy, Dane is adept at helping athletes pursue their goals and achieve peak performance; especially when it comes to picking up heavy things and putting them down.

Above all else, Dane cares about his patients. His goal for each person he works with is to know that pain is not permanent, they will get better, and there is always a way to improve performance.

 

Education & Credentials

B.S. in Exercise Science, College of Charleston (2016)

A.S. Physical Therapist Assistant, Trident Technical College (2017)

CF-L2 (2015)

Interested in working with Dane or hearing stories from his stint as a milkman?

Born and raised in Colorado, Nate grew up grew up roaming the wilderness. Dabbling in baseball, soccer, and karate he was always drawn to athletics, but his love for superheroes set the stage for a lifelong desire to be strong. In fact, Nate would faithfully wear Superman pajamas every night through grade school in the hopes that he would wake up one morning with superhuman strength.

When 9/11 happened during his sophomore year, Nate turned his energy towards military service joining the Marine Corps after graduating high school. Trained as an Arabic Cryptologic Linguist, he spent two years in Monterey, CA before being stationed at Ft. Gordon in Augusta, GA.

During his time in the military, Nate dove into bodybuilding and intentional weight training, which ultimately inspired him to pursue exercise science upon concluding his 5-year Marine Corps contract. After graduating with a B.S. in Exercise Science from Lander University in 2013, Nate’s adventures brought him to Charleston to attend physical therapy school at the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC). 

It was here he found a new fitness love in strongman competitions (think pulling garbage trucks and pressing tree trunks) and discovered a passion for CrossFit, which helped supplement his ambitious strength building with much-needed mobility and cardio.  

Nate joined the M2M team in 2018. As one who quickly bucks tired routines and defies limitations, he was drawn to a fresh, creative approach to physical therapy that did not focus solely on injury recovery, but proactive prevention as well.

Nate is a firm believer in the body and nervous system’s ability to recover from injury and adapt to nearly any stressor with the right movement and exercise. Through years of training, he has experienced his share of injuries and has always found ways to recover and even exceed his previous levels of performance.

Armed with his personal experience, exhaustive knowledge of physical therapy and unbridled passion for exercise science, Nate is confident in guiding you to be better than you were before your injury.

MAYSA HANNAWI

Never one to sit still, Maysa is a constant source of brimming energy, always bouncing from one activity to the next.

Although she is a self-proclaimed injury prone human, in the midst of a tournament with her collegiate ultimate frisbee team Maysa had her first brush with the patient side of physical therapy. In the first 5 minutes of the game, she stepped wrong to the onslaught of horrific pops – torn ACL, MCL and lateral meniscus. As she slowly, painfully healed and regained precious mobility, Maysa learned the patience and empathy to treat those whose injuries affect and threaten all areas of their life.

Armed with her doctorate in Physical Therapy from the Medical University of South Carolina, Maysa joined the M2M team in 2018 working primarily out of its Daniel Island location.

Maysa is also a CrossFit Level 1 certified trainer and founder of InTheBoxPT – physical therapy designed for CrossFit athletes, by CrossFit athletes. With IBX, Maysa takes injury prevention and rehabilitation to athletes at their home boxes through her individual sessions and group WOD Shops.

Combining what she has learned along the way with her tenacious passion to continue understanding what healthy bodies need to move at their best, Maysa is committed to helping you reach your peak performance.
