About Jukka: “I am originally from northern Finland. I have lived and practiced physical therapy in Michigan since 1994. I have worked in a variety of outpatient settings, specializing in orthopedics. I have extensive experience in treating spine problems, chronic pain, post-operative care and sports injuries. I have been an APTA certified clinical instructor for physical therapy students for 10+ years. My favorite sports are cross country skiing, running, biking and golf. I have coaching experience in ice hockey and track and field.”

“I got interested in physical therapy during my long distance running career, when I was treated by excellent clinicians for my running injuries. Once I discovered the power of skilled physical therapy, I decided to make it my career. I have been fortunate to advance my career over the years in Michigan. OMPT education at Oakland University was a logical advancement, since the OMPT approach is very well known in Finland.”
