Dr. Zack Atwood PT, DPT, C-PS, FRCms
Doctor of Physical Therapy
Zack graduated with his Bachelor of Science degree in Kinesiology with a concentration in Exercise Science from Wayne State University in Detroit, Michigan. Prior to transferring to Wayne State, he completed two years at the University of Detroit Mercy where he played collegiate soccer. His handful of injuries, interest in strength and conditioning and rehabilitation led him to obtain his Doctorate in Physical Therapy at Wayne State University. To enhance his clinical skill set while completing his DPT, he completed a sports medicine clinical rotation at Champion PT & Performance in Boston, Massachusetts. There, he trained under Mike Reinold and Lenny Macrina, world renowned sports physical therapists and leaders in the field of overhead athlete and ACL rehabilitation.
Zack has worked and works with athletes of all ages and skill levels, including those at the collegiate and professional levels.
Zack believes in providing the highest quality of care, that is evidenced-based, to help patients bridge the gap between early rehab to late-stage performance. ACL rehabilitation is a long journey, and it is a TEAM effort between the patient and their providers. It is imperative to have strong communication between providers to optimize the patient’s recovery.
