Dr. Gulli’s first experience with the field of Physical Therapy was as a young Athlete. During this time he was able to see how movement could help people get better. He experienced this again when he was a freshmen in high school where he was able to witness how he could spend a lot of time helping people( what he wanted to do) without the need for medication. His decision to go to PT school was solidified when he spent time working as an athletic trainer in the WNBA. There was a Physical Therapist that work with the team and his knowledge of rehabilitation and the human body far surpassed what he thought was possible, and decided that he wanted to be just like that. Dr. Gulli has a passion for all aspects of physical therapy, but decided to pursue orthopedics due to its complexity and relationship to every system in the body. Physical Therapists are human movement experts. Musculoskeletal injuries cause abnormal movement patterns.
