Dr. Manny Acheampong

DPT, FAFS, 3D MAPS

“My personal calling in life has always been to serve those most in need by allowing humility, compassion, generosity, selflessness, and a sense of humor to drive my work.”

Manny enjoys an active lifestyle and healthy food. His favorite thing to do is to spend time on the soccer field. Talk to him about soccer and food and his small eyes will just open wide. He often frequents the gym for a couple hours prior to starting his day (usually 5am) – Manny takes care of his body by exercising and eating well so he can be more successful in helping others take care of their bodies.

Manny’s exposure to Physical Therapy was not conventional. Being born and raised partly in Ghana, he had injured his left arm when he was young. He remembers his mom taking him to a mysterious man who used various herbs and movement several times a week until his arm felt better. Manny vividly remembers that this healer never took money, but instead accepted bread and eggs as payment. It wasn’t until years later that Manny realized this kind man was an example of what a physical therapist should be modeled after.

“Bring me your bread and eggs! I am not being literal here, but I do model my thought process after the mysterious Ghaniain healer who helped my arm. Show me what you can do despite feeling limited, and I will empower YOU through knowledge of movement, humility, compassion, selflessness, and a sense of humor – this is how I’ll help get YOU back to what you want to do in life.”
