Michael Pys feels like he has a lot of missed opportunities. As an osteopathic therapist who specializes in pain management, so many of his would-be patients have resigned to living with chronic pain, and thus aren’t seeking treatment. With this in mind, Michael devotes himself fully to each client—treatment begins with hands-on palpation and a one-on-one consultation so that he can determine both the physical and emotional affects of each person’s condition. He uses 17 years of experience to integrate multiple therapeutic modalities, which might include soft-tissue manipulation and release, massage, stretching, and postural correction. Compared to medicinal therapy, Michael’s technique is more inclusive, and it can be adjusted to treat ailments that range from migraines and nerve-related discomfort to sports injuries and chronic back pain from a career as a professional backpack model.
