Michal Porath, raised in Brooklyn NY, received her undergraduate degree in Psychobiology from Binghamton University, and went on to receive her Master's in Physical Therapy from Columbia University in 2002. Michal started her career working for an outpatient facility 16 years ago, treating student and adult athletes, working with the local high school teams, as well as individuals with general orthopedic diagnoses including total hip replacements, knee replacements, low back pain and sports injuries. Soon, Michal decided that working in her community was important to her, and so she began working in the outpatient department at Englewood Hospital Medical Center. Michal started providing In-Home physical therapy services 8 years ago, part time, for patients in Bergen County. Soon after, Michal started working Part time for SINAI Schools, working with young adults with disabilities who were enrolled in the high school programs, providing both orthopedic and neurological physical therapy. After opening up Prime Orthopedic Rehabilitation, Michal has decided to focus on Prime full time. Michal utilizes an evidence-based approach to treatment and develops specific programs based on the individual’s needs. Michal believes in treating the person as a whole, not just the diagnosis. Michal stays current with the new research and up to date orthopedic and neurological approaches through continuing education courses and attending physical therapy conventions. She incorporates multiple approaches including myofascial release, Mckenzie and Mulligan approach and Feldekrais approach. In her spare time, Michal enjoys spending time with her family, hiking and cooking.
