Macauley completed his Doctor of Physical Therapy degree at Boston University. During his studies, Macauley worked for two years at Boston University’s Neuromotor Recovery Laboratory, focusing on the application of emerging technology to a neurological patient population. The culmination of this work was a poster presentation at the Combined Sections Meeting 2020 in Denver, CO. Before attending graduate school, Macauley studied Psychology and Biology at Ohio Wesleyan University.
Macauley worked with a diverse population of patients with a wide variety of orthopedic and neurologic diagnoses, primarily in the outpatient setting. During his time in the clinic, Macauley realized his passion for working with patients with both chronic neurological and acute orthopedic injuries. Macauley’s primary focus has always been on adapting patients’ environments to serve them better, helping people return to work, sport, and their lives. He has always been a vocal advocate for his patient’s care and the implementation of research-backed best practices.
When he is not in the clinic, Macauley enjoys learning new hobbies, traveling, and rooting for his various sports teams across the country. He enjoys playing fetch with his dog Panda, bouldering, and playing disc golf in his spare time. His greatest passion is studying and learning more about Physical Therapy, inspired by his grandfather, Robert, and uncle, Abe.
