Michael received a BS in Health Sciences and BA in Music from University of Massachusetts Boston and his Doctor of Physical Therapy degree from Northeastern University. He is licensed in the state of Massachusetts as a Physical Therapist and has an affinity for treating general orthopedic conditions in the youth and those “young at heart”. He is an enthusiastic advocate for the role of physical therapy to assist the healing process and to help an individual return to their previous level of function. He finds it important to progress in his clinical skills to provide the best care for his patients. Michael has participated in continuing educational courses on advanced soft tissue techniques for the spine and core, and through Maitland-Australian Physiotherapy Seminars, such as MT-1 (Essential Peripheral) and MT-2 (Essential Spinal) where he learned advanced orthopedic manual techniques for effective assessment and treatment of neuro-musculoskeletal disorders of the Upper and Lower Limbs & spine, respectively.

At 4 years of age, Michael was diagnosed was Legg Calve Perthes, a genetic condition deforming the shape of his right hip. Having spent some of pre-K in a wheelchair and several years of physical therapy to aid with his standing and walking, he understands both the challenges and rewards of PT and is a firm believer in the impact and power of physical therapy. He believes in the importance of patient-therapist communication and in creating an individualized plan of care to help a client reach their personal goals.
