“Mike was exactly the PT I needed at exactly the time I needed him. His specialization in Chronic Pain gave him the exact tools and knowledge to help with my situation-tools that other (generally excellent) PTs simply lacked, meaning that my situation went undiagnosed for way too long. Mike figured it out immediately and launched me on a program that turned my lingering pain into an occasional nuisance in literally weeks… and I’m still improving. Mike not only has the tools and knowledge, but the gift of explaining ideas in simple terms. He helped me refram how I thought about my pain-which was the key to ultimately overcoming it. I can’t recommend him highly enough. ”
Michael is a fantastic PT and was not only knowledgeable but was also extremely attentive and available. He said we would be able to fix my problem and we did. He even got me up and running again, something I’ve done my whole life but thought I wouldn’t do again after some bad back spasms a few years prior. I’m really happy he came into my life when he did. Highly recommended.
Michael Aquino helped improve my life, literally… It was his techniques and patience and talking to me in “human” words that taught me how to strengthen my body and other muscles that has me walking and dancing again. He is personable and enthusiastic! He is smart and understands holistically how to heal and in my case, a knee injury that was so painful I could not walk without limping… the exercises he taught me I can easily do now that I understand how to do them. I cannot recommend him highly enough. On a scale from one to ten stars. He gets ten stars!!!
Michael is absolutely amazing! By far my favorite PT of all time! Not only is his energy infectious and his care totally genuine, but he’s beyond knowledgeable and able to make drastic progress in little time. He taught me so many valuable things, such as “Pain does not equal harm. Pain does not equal tissue damage. Acknowledge the pain and breathe through it. Visualize the neck as something soft and pliable instead of hard like a rock.” These are just a few of the things Michael taught me along the way. I can’t recommend him enough!”
