We recommend utilizing our Doctors of Osteopathic medicine (D.O.) specifically Dr. Michael Jonesco and Dr. Larry Nolan for any alignment assessments and adjustments. 

Dr. Michael Jonesco

Dr. Michael Jonesco is the Performing Arts Medicine team physician. He is board certified in Sports Medicine, Internal Medicine, Emergency Medical Services, and Osteopathic Physician. 

“When diagnosing a patient, I like to find the root of the pain or limitation. Anyone can diagnose a stress fracture, but I like to know what is causing it and why it is there. The diagnosis is often simple, but determining the root of the problem is essential. 
I specialize in medical care for athletes. To me, an athlete can be anyone serious about becoming or maintaining an active and healthy lifestyle. Whether your goal is to make it to the big leagues or simply walk your dog around the block, I want to help you reach your goals.”  

Dr. Jonesco practices out of several different clinics: 

Dr. Larry Nolan

“My specialization focuses on a non-surgical approach to a wide array of musculoskeletal issues for all ages. I believe in working closely with my patients and providing them with a multitude of options that allows for more highly personalized care plans. I emphasize the importance of prevention and strive to help my patients create long lasting healthy and active lifestyles. My goal is to provide my patients with all the necessary knowledge and assistance on their journey back to normal activity.”
