Meet the Intecore Physical Therapy Team

Michael Virata, PTA

Physical Therapist Assistant

Michael graduated and earned his associates degree from Pima Medical Institute in Seattle, Washington. He became interested in physical therapy after having to go to physical therapy for knee dislocation and fell in love with the environment. He performed an internship at Intecore Physical therapy as a student and had a wonderful time with all the workers and decided why not work here. Living the dream! He loves the idea of understanding the human body and being able to help and rehabilitate people and help them "return back to life".

Originally born in San Diego, California, and having his dad in the military, he was able to travel all over the from California, Japan, Philippines, and finally Washington since 2005. In his spare time he enjoys working out, hiking, and exploring the next best restaurant!
