Michael Rainville, DPT
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
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!
