About Michael Tabasko, PT, MSPT, OCS

Mike received his Master of Physical Therapy from Ithaca College in '01 and has over 15 years of diverse clinical experience. He began his career in Los Angeles at the Southern California Orthopedic Institute before practicing with the film and television industry's outpatient clinics. He has worked in neurological and inpatient rehabilitation at Providence St. Joseph's Hospital in Burbank, and also lived in in Boulder, Colorado treating the occupational health and athletic populations while enjoying the mountains.

Eventually returning to the east coast, Mike joined the COR team in 2010, soon earning his Board Certification as an Orthopedic Clinical Specialist(OCS). Mike strongly believes that a carefully designed exercise program and proper education empower each patient to be an active participant in their recovery. He emphasizes motor control and movement awareness along with applying manual treatments such as Graston Technique, muscle energy, and trigger point dry needling. As a competitive cyclist and runner, Mike enjoys working with the local endurance athlete community, particularly with stride assessment and bike fitting.

Outside of the clinic, Mike has been active with the organization Health Volunteers Overseas since 2008, teaching physical therapy colleagues in the developing world. His assignments have brought him throughout South America, South East Asia, and most recently, the Himalayan kingdom of Bhutan.
