Dr. Michael Bard served in the United States Navy for 6 years, in the medical corps. While in the Navy, he established and managed two out patient pharmacies. He was also trained as a member of the US Fleet Marine Force. His time in the navy gave him years of practical experience in the field of medicine and pharmaceuticals.
Dr Bard received his undergraduate degree in chemical engineering from Manhattan College. His degree in engineering gives him a unique understanding of the structure of the body, and the every day forces upon it that lead to the degeneration of the joints and soft tissue. His education and experience gives him an ability to recognize these unbalanced forces on the body. He will figure out a treatment plan that can balance these forces and allow the body to heal and, in many cases, prevent injury.
