Michael Rainville, DPT

Physical Therapy

Why did you decide to go into medicine?

I always knew I wanted to go into the medical field and help people. I wasn’t sure what discipline of the medical field I was interested in at first. I’ve always loved the fitness industry as well. I have been very active exercising and playing sports all my life and had many sport-related injuries. I had received physical therapy treatments for my injuries in the past and I liked the one on one treatments and the hands-on approach that helped me improve. At that point I realized I wanted to become a physical therapist to help people heal and recover from injuries.

When I’m not working, you can find me:

Playing ice hockey, exercising, bike riding, outside enjoying nature, hiking, bird watching, working on home improvement projects around the house and property, enjoying family time

Favorite pastime:

I’ve been playing ice hockey since I was 5 years old, and still play to this day. I played competitive hockey in both the US and Canada for many years. Go Sabres!
