Hello, I’m Mike Barnes, PT, MPT, OCS and founder/owner of Phase 4 Physiotherapy. I have a total of over 28 years of patient care experience and have been in private practice orthopedic physical therapy in San Antonio since 2001. I have been a Board Certified Orthopedic Specialist since 2002 and have personally seen over 60000 patient visits. As a young man only a year out of high school, while stationed in San Vito, Italy with the USAF, I worked as an EMT/Medical Technician at the 7275th ABG’s Primary Care Clinic. It was during my enlistment while working closely with physicians and nurses that I began to desire a more prominent role as a health care provider. I earned my Master of Physical Therapy degree from the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio in 1999 and completed 5/6 of the classes required for the DPT from The MGH Institute of Health Professions. I was unable to complete the DPT secondary to business and family demands, so as I say with tongue in cheek, “I guess you can refer to me as ‘Master’ Barnes if you must.” I have also received advanced training in various schools of thought pertaining to Physical/Manual Therapy to include study at The Manual Therapy Institute in San Marcos, Texas and have a gentle and eclectic approach that has proven to be very beneficial to my patients over the years. I look forward to serving you in any way I can!
