Michael Leahy, DC, ART, CCSP, founder of ART
Dr. P. Michael Leahy is an honor graduate of the U.S. Air Force Academy, former fighter pilot, and proud veteran. After his military service, Dr. Leahy graduated valedictorian of Los Angeles College of Chiropractic.
Throughout his career, Dr. Leahy has regularly treated professional, collegiate, and Olympic athletes: including Ironman champions, members of the Pro Football Hall of Fame, Olympic gold medalists, PGA Tour champions, and even a U.S. President. He has been on staff with the NFL’s Denver Broncos for more than two decades, and he and his Active Release Technology (ART) team remain a mainstay at the finish line of the Ironman World Championships in Kona.
Dr. Leahy has never stopped developing the ART treatment. He discovered and published Law of Repetitive Motion and the Cumulative Injury Cycle, which redefined the understanding and treatment of athletic- and work-related injuries. Today, as president of ART, Dr. Leahy’s work is dedicated to developing curriculum and instruction materials for ART based on feedback from ART-certified providers, professional athletes, and students collected over more than three decades. Dr. Leahy and his team continue to push the limits of efficacy and efficiency in soft tissue and nerve care.
Dr. Leahy is honored to be married for 48 years to his wife, Patty Leahy. He is a proud father to his sons, Michael Jr. and Matthew, and grandfather to nine. Dr. Leahy has completed more than 25 Ironman triathlons. He also enjoys golf, a good joke and a speedy recovery.Back
