I practice what I teach and I have a great deal of evidence based information and skills to show you.
I am a physical therapist, athletic trainer, orthopedic and sports certified specialist, and fellow in the American Academy of Orthopedics and Manual Physical Therapists. I have contributed extensively to research articles on many orthopedic topics and have developed a very systematic approach to addressing many orthopedic issues. I am one of a very few clinicians who has specialty certification in orthopedics, sports medicine and manual therapy. Most importantly, although my primary role is in academics, I still practice what I teach, both in the clinical as well as in the research setting. -Michael P.
