Dr. Ramez Antoun PT, DPT, PNF, OMT, SFMA, FMS, FCS.
Ramez is a licensed Physical Therapist in the state of Massachusetts and is the founder and president of Neuropedics Rehabilitation & Movement Wellness. He holds his Doctorate in Physical Therapy from the University of Massachusetts Lowell, as well as a Bachelor degree in Exercise Physiology with a minor in Nutrition.
After receiving his Doctorate Ramez traveled to the west coast to complete a 9-month post Graduate Residency with a focus on Neuromuscular Rehabilitation at the Kaiser Foundation Rehabilitation Center in Vallejo, CA to study Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation (PNF). Ramez was part of an collaborative rehab team to help people who had neurological injury (i.e stroke or nerve damage) regain hope and fight for function or the ability to walk again. This is where Ramez learned to clinically recognize dysfunctional neuromuscular movements patterns and how to clinically address them via a Manual Neuromuscular Therapy approach.
The PNF program also clinically integrated the most current pain neuroscience research to help those dealing with chronic pain. Ramez is now recognized as a PNF level 5 therapist by the International PNF Association (IPNFA).
After returning back to the east coast, Ramez then completed a 2-year Post Graduate fellowship program at The Institute of Orthopedic Manual Therapy (IOMT) where he underwent extensive orthopedic training in the manual evaluation and treatment of joints in the presence of acute and chronic spine problems such as but not limited to neck & low back pain, sciatica, as well as acute & chronic shoulder, hip, knee, and foot pain. Ramez is now internationally recognized as an Orthopedic Manual therapist (OMT).
In addition to his post-graduate clinical training, Ramez has also completed all of the current course work through the Functional Movement Systems (SFMA, FMS, FCS) and has been studying & practicing the FMS system since 2012.
Ramez’s is very passionate about orthopedics & sports medicine, injury prevention, motor control, and motor learning. He loves strength training using a combination of body weight and kettlebell training. Ramez is currently a student at Oom Yung Doe New England School of Martial Arts and he considers himself a life long student of movement. Ramez believes that early detection through movement screening & assessment is the missing link to helping people minimize frustrating injuries. He works with a wide range of movement abilities from competitive athletes to the general population.
When Ramez is not working or training he loves spending time with his wife and friends. He enjoys cooking or what he calls "playing in the kitchen" and reading. He loves being outside by any body of water, hiking, kayaking, paddle boarding, swimming, or just simply relaxing outdoors.
