Dr. J. Logan Cooper’s Teaching at MSU

The founder and owner of OMT Specialists, Dr. J. Logan Cooper, began teaching at Michigan State University (MSU) seven years ago. He started as a table trainer for the foundational course of the Principles of Manual Medicine (PMM) and has since taught PMM every year; in the past three years, he has taught it twice a year. He now teaches in the Continuing Medical Education Department of the College of Osteopathic Medicine.

By teaching licensed medical doctors (MDs), osteopathic physicians (DOs), and other physical therapists (PTs), Dr. Cooper gets to work side by side with the people who literally wrote the book on how to practice manual manipulative medicine. His philosophy is that an expert is someone who does the basics better than anyone else. Teaching the PMM course for the last seven years has kept him rooted in the basics, making him an expert in the manual manipulative medicine field.

In addition to teaching a variety of manual physical therapy-related courses, Dr. Cooper has also helped develop, write, institute, and proctor a national certification exam for physical therapists who complete the coursework they offer at MSU. Plus, he teaches medical professionals from all over the world!

Our Physical Therapy Philosophy

At OMT Specialists, we believe in using the most advanced and personalized manual physical therapy techniques to help you achieve your health, fitness, and comfort goals. By having a fully licensed and certified manual physical therapist on our team, we can guarantee that you will not only be able to manage your injury or enhance your athletic performance, but you’ll also be able to experience a whole new definition of daily comfort. Dr. Cooper’s experience in teaching and working with some of the highest level medical professionals in the physical therapy field has given him the expertise needed to make a difference in patients’ lives.

From our online services and informative articles to our variety of manual physical therapy treatments, OMT Specialists stands apart from standard physical therapy practices. We don’t believe in fixing one part of the problem and sending you on your way, and we certainly don’t think a treadmill can cure your chronic pain. That’s why we perform an in-depth initial evaluation and schedule follow-up treatment sessions at least every six months after you complete your physical therapy treatment plan. Ultimately, we see our patients as people, not as diagnoses.
