Congratulations on taking first step towards your wellness!!
My name is Ankit Patel and my true purpose in life is to help people. I am so fortunate to have found a profession that allows me to fulfill my purpose. My journey of infinite learning ignited from a quote from my childhood mentor Swami Vivekananda, "Ignorance is death and knowledge is life."
Since PT school, I was interested in Manual Therapy and its impact on a patient's progress. I am blessed to have found Institutes which fulfill my learning and that have taught me some valuable lifelong lessons. After graduating from PT school in India in 2008, I pursued a Masters Degree in cardiovascular physiology from Minnesota State University. I have been a licensed PT in the US since 2009. My path towards clinical excellence led me to manual therapy continuing education courses taught by Maitland, Mckenzie, Stanley Paris, and the Institute of Physical Art (IPA). These courses sparked my interest in a certification in Functional Manual Therapy from IPA, which I completed in 2020. There are less than 1% of PT's with this certification in the US!
I am forever thankful to Greg Johnson (founder of IPA and the most humble human I have ever met) and Darius Dunca (a friend, colleague, and most giving person I have ever met) for their guidance and inspiration to make me a better person and clinician.
I am excited, energetic and thrilled to help my patients in my own clinic, which allows me to serve each patient with the compassion and care they deserve. Please contact me with any questions and let's discover your potential to live a healthy and pain-free life.
