Dr. Mike Loebelenz PT, DPT

Doctorate of Physical Therapy 

Sports and working out have always been deeply intertwined in my life and a center piece of my family. I grew up like most kids who played sports, promising to buy my parents a yacht after I signed my first Big League contract. After deciding to retire early following my final senior year game, I realized that I needed a new passion. I knew I wanted to incorporate athletics into my job and lifestyle as well as giving back to my community in a meaningful way. This lead me down the pathway of Physical Therapy. After completing my schooling and gaining experience in the typical Physical Therapy world I quickly realized that it was not what I envisioned. My hands were tied by the insurance companies, who dictated the time and type of treatment I could provide. I knew that I could do more for both myself and the patients who wanted their lives back. This sparked my interest in starting a clinic of my own.  

 

Rise Above Physical Therapy was built on the dream of providing every patient with the same level of care and outcomes that I would expect as a patient myself. A place where your success is our success. We realize that you are not only spending you're hard earned cash, you're also spending your TIME. Time is the one thing you truly can't get back. That's why we are committed to getting you back to your activity of choice faster than standard Physical Therapy so you can spend your life DOING the things you enjoy rather than WISHING you could. 

Our vision going forward is a new wave of healthcare where the treatment represents the patient's needs rather than what insurance will pay pay for. Where patients get the time to build trust, connection, and a working relationship with their healthcare provider rather than being pushed through the system. I envision patients coming to us for a free total body diagnostic assessment prior to going in for expensive imaging and testing that only leads you to feeling more "stuck" and continuing the cycle of pain. Don't hesitate to give us a call and see if we are the right fit for each other. I look forward to hearing from you soon.  

Finally, I have to attribute a great deal of my success to Dr. Erson Religioso III, Dr. Kyle Coffey, and Dr. Brett Scott. They are pioneers in the field of Physical Therapy and their knowledge has given me the ability to provide patients with the best care possible. I would also like to thank my Mom, Dad, and sister. They have supported me to no end throughout this journey and I sincerely couldn't have done it without them. All of these people have had a huge role in making this dream a reality.  

  • Education 

I graduated from the University of Massachusetts Lowell with a bachelor's degree in Exercise Physiology. I continued my studies at the University of Massachusetts Lowell to receive my Doctorate of Physical Therapy in 2021.
