Mike developed a strong appreciation for physical therapy as an Army officer, when he saw how physical therapists not only rehabilitate those suffering from injuries, but also enhanced performance and better prepared people for intense physical activities. Mike worked as a strength and conditioning coach before attending physical therapy school and is passionate about incorporating functional strength training when working with his patients to help them return to their activities and to enhance their performance.
