Providing Collaborative Therapy Techniques

Dr. Michael T. Skelly of ProFysio Physical Therapy studied at Gannon University in Erie, PA earning his BS in Biology in 2013 and continued on to earn his Doctor of Physical Therapy degree graduating in 2017. He began working in outpatient physical therapy in the fall of 2017 and has evaluated hundreds of patients with orthopedic related deficits. Mike believes that the best way to facilitate the healing process is to educate the patient on their deficits and collaborate with the patient to develop a game plan to overcome those deficits to help them return to their daily lives pain free. Mike enjoys staying active by running, skiing, hiking, and exploring new places.
