Michael Rinaldi, PT, OCS, Cert SMT, Cert DN

Michael Rinaldi graduated from Ohio University in 1993, with degrees in Physical Therapy and Zoology (1994). He started the practice in Boardman in 2000, and in Niles in 2001.

In 2003 he was 1 of 4 physical therapists in Ohio to be awarded Board Certification as an Orthopedic Clinical Specialist. 

In 2005 he began studies and developed a program for the treatment of migraines and complex headaches, to which he's still adding new information.

From 2007 he taught seminars across the US on shoulder pain and low back pain, for his consulting company Avail Consulting, Inc.  He speaks only on special occasions now.  He currently considers his purpose in life to be to improve the livingness of people whom he can help.

In 2009, amidst the Great Recession and having a new  baby boy, he closed his Niles office and scaled back to being a solo practitioner.   He added an assistant in 2012.

In 2013 he was awarded Certification in Spinal Manipulative Therapy (Cert. SMT) and in Dry Needling (Cert. DN) by the Amercian Academy of Manipulative Therapy.

In May of 2014, he is treating vestibular problems of nearly all types and treating tinnitus.

Above all, he would like to leave the world--and people's lives--a little better than the way he found them, and to be a good husband, friend, and father.
