Meet Mike St. George!
Mike is a staff therapist in our Media location.
- What is your favorite part about working one-on-one with patients through the duration of their care? Having the chance to get to really understand your patient as not just someone with a diagnosis, but as an individual. This allows for the ability to understand the complexity of their condition and contributing factors such as personality and character. It also allows for the chance to really get to meet some awesome people.
- In your words, what is the “E&A Difference?” Breaking away from the “rules” and traditional mantra of being a physical therapist by taking things to the next level of addressing an individual’s exact needs as not only a patient but a person requiring help for dealing with a tough circumstance.
- Please share with us your most memorable patient, or patients, and their story. The patients that I remember most are the ones who present to the clinic with an initial impression of doubt. The individual who is not the top athlete or most physically fit and may be considered average with low motivation but comes to therapy and makes great progress. The process of accomplishing their therapy goals also allows them to overcome personal fears and obstacles.
- What do you like to do in your off time, outside the clinic? I currently train to compete in American Ninja Warrior and obstacle course racing (OCRs). This training helps to compliment the obstacles we encounter in our lives.
