Michael is a doctor of physical therapy who started M3 Physio in 2019 so that people could receive the physical therapy and wellness care they deserved.
He graduated from the University of Louisiana at Monroe in 2010 and LSUHSC – New Orleans in 2014. He was certified in orthopedic manual therapy (COMT) in 2019 and is currently an American Academy of Orthopedic Manual Physical Therapy fellow in training with OPTIM Manual Therapy.
His professional interests/passion includes helping those with orthopedic and neuro-musculoskeletal issues, including acute and persisting (chronic) pain, return to the activities they love. He practices using a science-based and biopsychosocial approach; performing a thorough examination to determine what the problem and best course of action are to help you achieve your goals. Your treatment will consist of education about what is going on and what you can do about it, manual therapy and therapeutic exercise to help calm down and build you back up, or a referral to another appropriate healthcare provider if needed.
He enjoys helping educate the public as well as other healthcare professionals. He regularly provides community clinics on subjects such as running injuries, pain/injury, and low back pain (Let us know if you would like to schedule him to provide a clinic at your place of work or gym). He also hosts and helps teach continuing education courses on a variety of topics, including pain science, manual therapy, movement, and dry needling.
Outside of providing care for his clients, Michael enjoys spending time with his wife, Mary Margaret, and family/friends, being involved at his church (Jesus the Good Shepherd in Monroe), and being a “weekend warrior”.
