Dr. Kunkel's Care Philosophy

As a practicing physical therapist and having been an assistant  professor at Nova Southeastern University Department of Physical Therapy as well as an adjunct at The Miller School of Medicine in Miami, I believe that a patient center approach to care with evidence based practice is essential to achieving the optimal outcomes. Patients are treated the way medicine was originally designed with the personal care we at The Flagler Institute for Rehabilitation demand and deliver.

Dr. Kunkel says...

I became the first physical therapist in Palm Beach County with the prestigious Vodder Certification for the treatment of lymphedema in a CORF setting. I have always enjoyed advancing my education and experience by attending continuing education as well as teaching. I have been a professor at The University of Miami Miller School of Medicine Department of Physical Therapy and Nova Southeastern University College of Health Care Sciences Department of Physical Therapy.  Teaching has been invaluable as it allows for an enhancement on my knowledge as well developing the new professionals. My motto has been to "Teach for Maximum Competency".  I am certified in Polestar Pilates for Rehabilitation Professionals which many of the spine surgeons require for pre and post operative physical therapy.  Cancer rehabilitation has also been a strong emphasis in my practice with the certification in lymphedema, I have been able to impact many who are recovering from the treatment of cancer.   

Physical Therapists are primary practitioners and must have the skill, knowledge and experience to perform independent and thorough examinations and evaluations and determine the appropriate physical therapy diagnosis.

Dr. Kunkel says...

Very few physical therapists have the education and experience to treat a broad range of patient conditions.  Having been a university professor and a practicing clinician is rare. It allows for a unique research and evidence based approach for precise diagnosis and rapid recovery and/or maximal outcomes.
