Co-owner, Clinic Director & Physical Therapist
When Andy McLlarky was a high school athlete, he sustained a knee injury playing baseball. His physician recommended physical therapy as a road back to wellness, and Andy had to undergo several treatments before he could return to the active lifestyle he enjoyed. “As I got better, I really saw the value in PT and became driven to the field,” he explained.
That was the beginning of his own dream to become a physical therapist, a decision that has allowed him to enjoy a career he still finds extremely rewarding.
“This is a very rewarding profession,” he says. “When you can ease people’s pain and help them get back to their normal lives, they are very appreciative, and that is very rewarding.” Andy took his Physical Therapy degree at Springfield College where he was fortunate to have the opportunity to work with professional athletes and train under world-renowned physical therapists.
Andy has taken advanced training in movement assessment, instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization and evidence-based joint manipulation. He is passionate about staying current with ongoing research in physical therapy and strength and conditioning so that he can deliver the best results to his patients.
When he is not at work, he enjoys spending time with his wife, young son and daughter, and the family’s dog. He also enjoys working out and listening to music and rooting on Boston sports teams.
