Andy has practiced physical therapy since 1983 and has developed into a respected leader in the Milwaukee-area orthopedic and sports physical therapy community. In 2014, the Wisconsin Physical Therapy Association selected Andy as the Physical Therapist of the Year Award winner. He founded the independent free-standing PT practice of Body Mechanics in 1999 and has successfully assembled a talented team of highly skilled manual physical therapists to serve the area. His dual background of athletic training and physical therapy, combined with his skills in analyzing human movement, communication, and gifted sense of touch allow him to help athletes and other individuals optimize their physical abilities. Andy taught continuing education to physical therapists through the Institute of Physical Art for over 30 years as well as presenting at many state physical therapy meetings. He gained valuable experience in mentoring and guiding other PT's in their quest to grow and improve their manual physical therapy and treatment skills. His focus is now in support of the experienced and talented team of PT's at Body Mechanics along with practice management and care of his own patients.
Andy is known as a resource for other physical therapists for consultation on difficult cases as well as for treatment of their own injuries. His advanced training includes Functional Manual Therapy™ proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation (PNF), myofascial release, muscle energy techniques, specific functional exercise, foot orthotics, and dry needling methods for trigger point treatment.
