Mackenzie Van Loo, PT, DPT’s personal mission statement is, “To provide quality service rooted in wisdom and intention, to combat the physical injustices of this world.”

Mackenzie is passionate about helping you live your life the way you were meant to—uninhibited by physical ailment or limitation. She geeks out over pelvic health, visceral mobilization, the use of Real-Time Ultrasound Imaging, birth justice, education, and return-to-sport postpartum.

While the Oregon native considered many career paths, Mackenzie decided the best way to serve people and their enjoyment of life was through physical therapy. Since graduating with her doctorate, Mackenzie has held two terms as the American Physical Therapy Association’s (APTA) Federal Affairs Liaison for Oregon, participated as an early career mentor for the Oregon Physical Therapy Association, served on various committees, and guest lectured at Oregon State University Cascades.

Mackenzie lives for Bend’s culture around getting outside and moving, and appreciates how formative that is to raising children and living a full and balanced family life. She feels incredibly privileged to reside here in Bend and hopes to contribute to the community for a long time to come.

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!!! I can’t believe how much Mackenzie helped me. I had given up on sex because it was too painful (due to what I thought was just aging), but you worked your magic and everything is working now as it should. I learned so much from you. I am happy I didn’t just accept that my sex life was over. Your gentle manor made me feel safe to discuss anything with you, and I appreciate how you educated me so I didn’t feel that there was something wrong with me. I wish more women knew about physical therapy for pelvic floor and I wish I had known about you sooner, but I will take what I can get. By the way, you completely fixed my hip too! The pain was gone after our last appointment. I can’t believe I suffered with that for 6 months too. You are a true healer. I will be back to treat a few of the other things I mentioned at our last visit. My husband and I both thank you again!

Dr. Van Loo is incredibly skilled with her assessments and treatments. She helped me greatly with musculoskeletal issues that were undiagnosed for years. I confidently refer her my patients as well and know they are in very capable hands!

Mackenzie is wonderful! She is super skilled and very knowledgeable. She explains everything, looks for root causes, and is extremely positive/encouraging. We would recommend her to anyone that needs PT services.

Mackenzie is incredible! I had long-lingering digestive issues that I could not figure out and within one appointment, she had pinpointed things that may have been causing them. Over the course of our work together, she helped me tremendously by first, helping to resolve some things and second, giving me the tools to help myself if/when symptoms flared. I highly recommend working with her. She's thoughtful, kind, and highly knowledgeable!

Mackenzie Van Loo is a true healer in our community. She takes time to get to know you and is extremely gifted in how she supports true healing. I am so thankful to have found her!

I went to Mackenzie to help correct my foot strength and shape originally and not only did she give me helpful tools to begin that process, she also help me correct my hip flexor and an injury in my rotator cuff from working out. She is amazing at diagnosis issues and helping me understand why and how things happen to my body. And easy obtainable stretches and exercises to help my body heal. Highly highly recommend her!

I am so grateful to have found Dr. Vanloo and MovementX. Dr. Vanloo put me on the road to recovery and elimination of pain in a few short months after a decade of pain. Unlike other physical therapy services Dr. Vanloo incorporates excellent body work into her practice coupled with prescribed movement exercises. The combination resulted in rapid healing and recovery that is now very manageable to maintain. I can't speak highly enough of her knowledge, approach, kindness and results. I'm recommending her to everyone I know.
