Craig Michaels, DPT

Manchester Facility Manager & Physical Therapist

Craig received his Doctorate in Physical Therapy from Rutgers/UMDNJ Graduate School.  Craig graduated at the top of his class, and received the Program Excellence Award for clinical experience, academic excellence and professionalism. He completed a series of rigorous clinical affiliations that prepared him for a wide variety of patients.  These vary from orthopedic conditions, where he studied at All-Care in Toms River, to spinal cord injuries at Kessler Institute for Rehabilitation in West Orange. These experiences led to his interest in a population ranging from Orthopedic to Neurologic rehabilitation, as well as a focus on gait disorders.

Craig believes that flexibility is the key to mobility, and in a whole body approach to wellness.  His focus is on a one on one approach and to remain very hands on with every patient.  In the near future, he looks forward to furthering his manual skills and supplementing his education with continuing education courses in Maitland and myofascial release. Craig has an ultimate goal to become a Certified Orthopedic Manual Therapist.
