Michael Trathen, RPT
Michael’s path to becoming a Physical Therapist was paved through his experience in the US Military. Michael is a Veteran that served during the desert storm era. He was introduced to PT after himself being injured while serving in the military. It was while going through extensive rehabilitation for his injuries, that he developed a passion for this profession. After being discharged, Michael embarked on his path to becoming a PT.
I went to Procare Physical Therapy Fort Lauderdale, after a skiing accident. The quality of care that I received from Michael Trathen PT and his staff was outstanding. I even referred my own mother to this facility and she loved it! I have been referring patient to this facility for a while now and the feedback I get is fantastic!
I was treated with compassion, professionalism and all of the therapist had excellent knowledge of how to help my get back to a normal life. I wish all physical therapy clinics would exhibit the level of concern and care that they provide me.
You guys are wonderful, caring and thoughtful therapist! You always worked closely with me to make sure that I wasn’t doing things to hurt myself or doing something wrong. You made sure that I kept moving in order to prevent any blood clots from forming. Thank you Mike and team.
