About John: “I am fascinated by the study of human movement. I believe
that as practitioners we have a responsibility to provide a
therapeutic experience for our patient’s that will help them elevate
their movement performance. Through the careful analysis of human
movement paired with an understanding of anatomy, physiology,
pathology, biomechanics, and psychology we can prepare ourselves to
manage all patient’s that seek our care. I believe that experiential
education is the key to matching up these skills and knowledge for
optimal patient outcomes.”

Dr. Krauss is a Professor and Director of the Physical Therapy Program
and Coordinator of the Orthopedic Manual Physical Therapy Graduate
Certification at Oakland University in the School of Health Sciences.
