Michael Domingo, DPT

Michael Domingo is the owner and founder of GO PT. He started GO PT as a solo home health practitioner in 2015. With a quickly growing schedule he transitioned to a small room inside of a Mixed Martial Arts gym in South Lake Union in 2016, with two part-time members joining the team. At the beginning of 2017, Michael opened up GO PTs independent South Lake Union location with only 1 other therapist by his side, and by the end of 2017 we had a total team of 8 passionate Physical Therapists.

At GO PT we pride ourselves in evidence based practice, 1 on 1 care, with a focus on manual therapy and therapeutic exercise. We believe in getting a deep understanding of you as a patient in order to best tailor your therapy with the intricacies of your life and goals in mind. We believe that your goals with Physical Therapy are our goals, and strive to ensure you have the best experience from beginning to end. We believe our rapid growth is in large part due to our local community’s recognition that we hold ourselves to these high standards.

Michael was born and raised in Florida. He received his Doctorate in Physical Therapy from the University of Miami in 2012. Michael worked with professional and college athletes early in his practice, which gave him a strong interest in manual therapy, orthopedics, and sports rehab. Immediately after his graduation he moved to the state of Washington to begin an Orthopedic Residency program through Evidence in Motion and became a Board Certified Orthopedic Specialist (OCS) in 2015.

Michael works well with a multitude of body parts and orthopedic conditions, but he works especially well with shoulders and knees. He loves working with a wide variety of patients with both familiar and novel activities, but has an affinity towards climbers, swimmers, hikers, tennis, and baseball players.

Michael uses regional interdependence theories to take in a big picture of a patient’s potential issues. He then uses manual therapy and therapeutic exercises to maximize a patient’s mobility, motor control, strength among multiple other metrics to decrease a patient’s pain and symptoms and optimize their activity performance.

Activities/Interests 

Michael’s main athletic activities include tennis, swimming, and strength training. However, since moving to Washington, he has taken advantage of many outdoor activities that were not previously available to him back home, including snowboarding and hiking. Music is also a passion of his. Michael mainly plays guitar, piano, and drums.

Lindsey loves that she gets to work in a field that empowers patients to take control of their own health and provides the groundwork for them to do so!  Her treatment philosophy revolves around actively listening to the patient and looking at the body as a whole in order to determine the best way for the patient to achieve their goals.  She has a special interest in manual therapy and is always looking for new ways to improve her skills through continuing education courses.   Lindsey also works with the vestibular population and post-concussion rehabilitation with hopes of developing a more comprehensive post-concussion program for our area.

Despite leaving her travelling PT days behind her, she still loves to explore the beautiful places Washington and surrounding areas have to offer on her free time.  She can also be found eating her way through Seattle, puppy-sitting for her friends’ dogs, hiking, snowboarding, and working out at OrangeTheory whenever possible!
