Jeff Garbacz


Courses: Extremity Mobilization

Jeff began his education as a physical therapist at Albion College where he received a B.A. in Sports Medicine with an emphasis on Biomechanics. He went onto the University of Michigan to receive his Doctorate of Physical Therapy. Jeff has extensive clinical experience working with the orthopedic population. He utilizes manual therapy in combination with a functionally based exercise to allow his patients to return to their prior functional level. Jeff’s philosophy in treating patients involves finding the origin of the problem versus treating the symptoms, allowing problems to go away and stay away. Jeff has trained the primary instructors for the Knee and Shoulder courses and is the primary instructor for the Extremity Mobilization course for Great Lakes Seminars. Jeff is the Director of Operations for Advanced Physical Therapy in Southfield, MI.
