Dr. Robert Essex , PT, DPT, MS, OCS
Owner/CEO, Orthopedic Clinical Specialist, Titleist Performance Institute Certified

Meet Doctor Bob, the Physical Therapist and owner of Muscle and Spine Rehab Center. Bob has been practicing in outpatient orthopedics for 28 years. He has been the owner of his private practice for over 20 years. He received his Master of Science in Physical Therapy from Andrews University and his Doctoral Degree in Physical Therapy from the University of Montana. He is a Board Certified Orthopedic Clinical Specialist.

Bob loves being a Physical Therapist because he has a passion for helping people. He especially enjoys coming up with solutions to real challenging patient cases. He believes one of the best parts about Muscle and Spine is the teamwork. “We get results by working as a team, by always searching for a better way and because we can laugh with each other and our patients.”

Outside of work, Bob enjoys spending time with his wife, three kids, and their dog. They mean the world to him and he is always bringing them up in conversation. They camp and beach together in this great state of Michigan. They make time to snowboard and play all manner of sports together – mostly basketball and golf, in recent years. Finally, he loves hiking and mountain climbing with Maui Steve and his sons.
