Literally translated, Hutano means Health.  Why health?  Simply because Health is all we do at Hutano Physical Therapy. We help maintain health as much as we help prevent disease through mobility. We believe that a body in motion is a healthy body. On the other hand, a sedentary body is prone to disease. Hutano ensures that the way your body moves is appropriate for your body type, occupation, and hobbies.  Ultimately helping you move longer with less pain. Dr. Ephraim Makuve is the founder of Hutano, and though his experience working with patients and clients of all age groups, he has formulated a movement regiment for everyone. Moreover, as an athlete himself, he has developed programs for runners, swimmers, dancers, and cyclists to improve their performance while reducing the risk of injury.

“I did not believe I could reach the level of endurance running Dr. Makuve has helped me achieve. Within 4 weeks; having never been a  runner, and at the age of 45, he has me running 6 miles 3 times a week, pain-free at a ten-minute mile. I have lost over 15 pounds in 7 weeks and continue to lose weight and feel good.  As a physician, I can truly say this is the best medicine I would ever prescribe anyone. Dr. Makuve understands biomechanics and pathology and knows how to tailor a truly successful training regiment. “
