Get to know Physical Therapist Dr. Paul Hartmann, who serves patients in Huntington Woods, Michigan.

Dr. Hartmann is a movement ecologist who utilizes his extensive training in integrative physical therapy and functional nutrition counseling to help empower patients to find and resolve the root cause that is keeping them from living their best life. He provides orthopedic and sports medicine physical therapy in a holistic and integrative space that focuses on improving functional and athletic performance. His treatment method incorporates the highest level of evidence-based techniques in PT and nutrition science combined with a compassionate whole body view.

Academically, he has had the good fortune to train with some of the top movement educators and manual therapists at Boston University and in Australia, synthesizing the best evidence based practice into what he found worked the best in clinical practice. He has taken his personal Tai Chi practice and developed a class for patients with stroke and aphasia through the Aphasia Center at Boston University, demonstrating greater carry over, not just in strength and balance, but also with memory and language processing.

On a professional level, Dr. Hartmann has practiced most of his career in Integrative Medicine Centers in New York, first at Beth Israel Medical Center and then Mount Sinai Medical Center alongside allopathic doctors and alternative practitioners, seeing first hand the power of collaborative practice across disciplines. This led organically to him studying Functional Nutrition Counseling with the Functional Nutrition Alliance. 

Combining his Doctor of Physical Therapy degree with Functional Nutrition Counseling allows him to see each patient as the unique person they are and see how all aspects of life matter when it comes to health and wellbeing. He also continues to seek out a deeper understanding of the human relationship with pain through the work of Lorimer Moseley and Alan Gordon, which aids him in his mission to help patients with chronic pain find a new lease on life with much less pain and greater function doing the things they love.

Recently, with PT practices closing their doors due to the pandemic, Dr. Hartmann responded to the needs of patients by launching a virtual PT practice so that they could have an uninterrupted continuum of care. He found that a combination of pain science education and targeted exercise prescription in virtual sessions allowed for the same great outcomes he was achieving in the clinic. Relocating to Michigan with his family has not interrupted his practice as he can continue to treat patients virtually both in New York and Michigan.

Physical therapy (PT), also known as physiotherapy, is one of the allied health professions that, by using evidence-based kinesiology, electrotherapy, shockwave modality, exercise prescription, joint mobilization and health education, treats conditions such as chronic or acute pain, soft tissue injuries, cartilage damage, arthritis, gait disorders, and physical impairments typically of musculoskeletal, cardiopulmonary, neurological, and endocrinological origins. Physical therapy is used to improve a patient’s physical functions through physical examination, diagnosis, prognosis, physical intervention, rehabilitation, and patient education. It is practiced by physical therapists (known as physiotherapists in many countries).
