Michael received his Doctorate of Physical Therapy degree from Long Island University-Brooklyn in May 2017. Michael’s treatment philosophy is based in manual therapy. He has received manual therapy training both in school as well as under a certified Functional Manual Therapist during his final clinical affiliation. Michael believes that a hands on approach is the most effective to assess, diagnosis, and treat body impairments. This approach allows him to effectively identify the source of a dysfunction which is paramount to effective treatment. In addition to manual soft tissue mobilization and joint mobilization, treatment is followed up with hands on neuromuscular facilitation to ensure optimal motor control during functional movement.
Currently, Michael is pursuing a certification in Functional Manual Therapy (CFMT) through the Institute of Physical Art (IPA). Outside of the clinic, Michael is interested in the arts, and he enjoys the performing arts of NYC.
