Kolade Makinde, DPT
Kolade Makinde is a passionate professional dedicated to improving the lives of his patients. Kolade earned a Bachelor of Science Degree in Physiology from Michigan State University and further pursued a Doctoral in Physical Therapy at the University of St. Augustine for Health Science. Growing up in South Africa, Kolade has always loved living an active lifestyle. He became intrigued with physical therapy after seeing the profound effects it had on his mother. She had broken her ankle and after surgery, she still had little improvement. Her improvement began during her physical therapy treatment which completely transformed her life. Seeing the extreme value in physical therapy, Kolade devoted his career to enriching other people’s lives.
When treating patients, Kolade employs an individualistic approach. He focuses on patient education, positive outcomes, and functionality; not simply treating pain. As a result, Kolade’s patients receive treatments completely customized to them.
