Hello, I’m Mike Barnes, PT, MPT, OCS.  I have a total of over 17 years of patient care experience and have been in private practice orthopedic physical therapy in San Antonio since 2001.   I am a Board Certified Orthopedic Specialist and have personally seen over 45000 patient visits.  While stationed in Italy with the USAF, I worked as an EMT/Medical Technician at the 7275th ABG’s Primary Care Clinic.  It was during my enlistment, while working with physicians and nurses, that I began to desire a more prominent role as a health care provider.  I earned my Master of Physical Therapy degree from the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio in 1999 and am currently pursuing a Doctoral Degree in Physical Therapy.  I have also received advanced training in the various schools of thought pertaining to Physical/Manual Therapy and have a gentle and eclectic approach that has proven to be very beneficial to my patients over the years. 

I look forward to serving you in any way I can!

The following is a list of Physicians who have referred patients to me over the past several years:
