Connor Hesselbirg, PT, DPT
Connor is a physical therapist here at FLPT. As a runner himself dealing with his own training aches and pains, Connor understands the commitment it takes to perform at one’s best. He notes that to have a PT that knows what you’re going through and knows how to help you get better can be crucial for an athlete’s road to success and recovery, and that is what inspired him to pursue physical therapy – so he could help athletes get back to doing what they love.
