Guest Biography

About Dr. Josh Mackey, PT, DPT

With a background in sports like table tennis, badminton, and spikeball, it was easy for Josh to fall in love with the sport of pickleball.

After quickly starting to play the sport and competing against other players, he learned that many were struggling with pain and injury. Many of them had tried physical therapy, chiropractor, personal training, and other treatments in the past. Despite this, most were not getting the results they wanted.

This is where Dr. Josh began to search and look for a better solution. With his knowledge of the sport of pickleball and expertise as a doctor of physical therapy, he was able to bridge the gap between the two. He wanted to deliver a one-of-a-kind service designed specifically for pickleball players struggling with pain and injury.

Over the past year, Dr.Josh has been able to help hundreds of pickleball players all over the world. His goal is to help pickleball players bulletproof their bodies from injury so they can continue to compete against friends and maintain a healthy lifestyle.

Guest Biography

I started in the orthotic industry in 1987 as a Lab technician.

In a short time, I had worked my way up into a management position.

I have 30 plus years of biomechanical knowledge, all taught to me by my mentor, Dr. Michael J. Burns.

In my spare time, when I'm not at work, I like to hunt/fish, go on long walks or maybe go target practicing. I also try to spend as much time as I can with my grandson.
