His Story


Michael George graduated magna cum laude from Western Washington University with a B.S. in Kinesiology with an emphasis in Pre-Physical Therapy in 2010 and then went on to earn his Doctorate in Physical Therapy from New York University in 2013. After nearly five and a half years living in New York City he moved back to Portland and in June 2017 earned his Orthopedic Clinical Specialist (OCS) certification through the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA). Shortly thereafter Michael underwent a year and a half residency program in Functional Manual Therapy through the Institute of Physical Art (IPA) in Eugene, Oregon. During his residency Michael tested for his Certification in Functional Manual Therapy (CFMT) through the IPA in August 2018 which he passed with Distinction. He is currently in the process of completing an APTA/American Academy of Orthopedic Manual Physical Therapists (AAOMPT) credentialed Fellowship program at IPA Physio Portland. Michael is continually drawn to what physical therapy has to offer to the human system and its ability to bring out the untapped potential that every person possesses. In his free time he enjoys cooking, running and spending time with family and friends.
