Originally from Chicago, Michael Staszak moved to Eugene in 1994 and has been living here and practicing as a Physical Therapist ever since. He has been a private practice owner since 2001, initially as co-owner of Bodywise Physical Therapy, then he opened Staszak Physical Therapy & Wellness Center in 2010. He feels privileged to be in this healing profession and be able to help people on a daily basis.
Michael has attended dozens of continuing education courses over the years and has taken bits and pieces from each to create his own approach to manual therapy, education, and exercise. His focus goes beyond just the specific area of injury, he addresses the various causal factors that help bring on an injury, and that often include compensations throughout the entire body. This approach has proven to be extremely effective in helping people recover from an injury but also helps prevent them from having problems in the future.
Outside of work, Michael enjoys spending time with his family, exercising, traveling, gardening, and the outdoors.
