Michael J.

PT

Physical Therapist, Clinic Director

In the summer prior to Mike’s senior year of high school, he suffered a fractured tibia and fibula; causing him to miss the soccer season. However, with the help of rehabilitation, he was able to play baseball in the spring later in his senior year. Mike was extremely grateful for the assistance of his rehab providers enabling him to make a return to the ball field for his senior year. It was at that moment where Mike knew he wanted to be a Physical Therapist and assist others in regaining their mobility and improving their quality of life.

Mike received his degree in Physical Therapy from The Ohio State University. Throughout his over 20 year career, Mike has worked in a variety of settings including: rehabilitation hospital, community hospital, trauma hospital, assisted living facilities, and outpatient physical therapy clinics. In addition to providing physical therapy to his patients, Mike has been in a leadership role for the majority of his career; whether it be as a department lead therapist, an assistant clinic manager or clinic manager. He is an APTA Certified Clinical Instructor and has served as an Adjunct Clinical Staff for the DPT program at Old Dominion University.

Outside of work, Mike has volunteered to coach his two sons’ youth baseball and basketball teams. Now, he gets to relax and watch them play baseball on their showcase teams and high school teams. Mike and his wife enjoy traveling and exploring the region’s scenery; including the Outer Banks’ beaches and the hiking trails of the Blue Ridge. He is also an avid sports fan and proudly supports his Buckeyes.
