Michael earned both his Bachelor’s of Exercise Science (2017) and Doctorate of Physical Therapy (2019) from Saint Louis University. Having grown up in Orland Park as a Sandburg graduate, Michael is happy to return to Team Rehab Orland Park after working at the clinic as a technician in 2017. When working with Michael, patients can expect to be challenged in a comfortable environment to achieve their individual goals.
He has a passion for rehabilitating orthopedic conditions – from returning high level athletes to peak performance, to easing normal everyday aches and pains. Whether it’s getting rid of pain, restoring balance, or simply trying to master movement, Michael is excited to help his patients along their wellness journey.
Michael uses a variety of methods to aid in recovery including Graston Technique, spinal manipulations, and muscle energy techniques. Ultimately, though, movement is the closest thing to a miracle drug, and when coupled with personalized hands-on treatment, will get patients back to feeling like themselves again.
Outside of physical therapy, Michael enjoys staying active, traveling, and training Jiu Jitsu and Muay Thai. Depending on the season, he also “enjoys” keeping up with Chicago sports – mostly the Blackhawks and Bears.
