An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure! My goal is to encourage an active lifestyle through education across the world to combat our first-world sedentary lifestyles.
Michael Lau, PT, DPT, is a licensed physical therapist in the state of California and treats a wide range of orthopedic and sports conditions. With a strong background in strength and conditioning, Michael likes to blend the realms of strength training and rehabilitation to provide prehab, or preventative rehabilitation, to his patients.
A common human behavior is to address problems after they become an issue and far often too late, which is a reactionary approach. He believes the key to improved health care is education and awareness. This proactive approach—prehab—can reduce the risk of injuries and pain in the first place.
He is a huge proponent of movement education, pain science, and strength and conditioning. Clinically, he has a special interest in ACLR rehab and returns to sport for the lower extremity athlete.
Michael is a licensed physical therapist and certified strength and conditioning specialist. He received his Doctorate in Physical Therapy from the University of Southern California and his bachelor of science degree in physiology from the University of California, Los Angeles.
