Andrew Gorecki, DPT - Physical Therapist/Owner
Andrew received his bachelors in exercise science from Northern Michigan University and continued his education at Central Michigan University where he received his Doctorate in Physical Therapy (DPT). Andrew recently came to the area from Traverse City, MI where he worked mainly in a outpatient orthopaedic setting working with patients and athletes ranging from foot and ankle injuries, knee and hip dysfunctions, shoulder pain, and spine dysfunctions. Andrew specializes in functional applied science which originates from internationally acclaimed physical therapist Gary Gray where he analyzes biomechanical dysfunctions in order to realize the true cause of your pain. This style of physical therapy is unique and extremely effective in returning the high level athlete or weekend warrior back to function.
