Michael joined Pullano Physical Therapy in 2005. After leaving in 2018 to explore the home care setting, Michael returned to PPT in the fall of 2020. He is a graduate of Union Endicott Highschool class of 1997. He received a degree in Athletic Training from Penn State University in 2001 and went on to earn his Master’s of Physical Therapy from SUNY Upstate Medical University in 2005. With a background working with high level athletes, Michael enjoys working with sports related injuries with a focus on functional strengthening techniques. Other clinical skills include identifying postural and mechanical faults that result in chronic pain and reinjury. He also believes in Yoga as a valuable tool for strength and balance. Consistent with the Pullano PT treatment model, Michael relies heavily on one-on-one manual therapy techniques to accelerate the healing process.
Michael lives in Whitney Point and stays busy raising his 3 children and taking care of his small horse farm. His hobbies include running, obstacle course racing, racquetball, and live music. He is excited to return to the Pullano PT team and the wonderful network of community members he has met over the years.
