My name is Michael Curtis. I am a Doctor of Physical Therapy, licensed in the State of California. I am a Board Certified Orthopaedic Specialist, which makes me an expert in the area of Musculoskeletal Disorders.
This is my personal website. It is focused on Health, Wellness, Fitness, Pain and Injury prevention. I provide content about these topics and occasionally others that I believe will be pertinent to YOU.
My goal is to help YOU live a better, healthier life at your highest capacity. I have years of experience helping people like you get rid of pain, rehabilitate from injuries, increase mobility, improve strength, become more active, and prevent degenerative diseases.
I typically post new content ONCE PER WEEK. To make sure you don’t miss my newest posts, you can subscribe to my email updates or via RSS. I promise not to bombard you with emails or advertising – I know you don’t have the time for that, and honestly, neither do I.
I’m excited for YOU to be a part of this community dedicated to building better, healthier lives.
I am a Physical Therapist with a Doctor of Physical Therapy degree from Azusa Pacific University. After graduating in 2012, I participated in a year long orthopaedic residency program, further advancing my skills in examination, clinical reasoning, and therapeutic treatment. The residency included a full year of mentoring from expert orthopaedic therapists, treating a majority of ortho and sports patients, as well as advanced education during weekend classes providing evidence-based research and information along with hands-on skills training. After graduating the residency program I passed the specialty exam, rendering me a Board Certified Orthopaedic Clinical Specialist. I believe this specialty gives me an edge in treating ortho patients at the highest level.
My professional goal is to continue to grow in knowledge and skill in order to optimize outcomes for every patient that I have the opportunity of treating.
This blog is what I am contributing to in my free time and is not associated with my employment. I’m doing it because I want to help people like you live healthier, more active lives – free of injury and pain.
In my free time I enjoy exercising, cycling, reading, writing and spending time with my family. I am married and have a young son and daughter.
