Dr. Hatrak is affectionately known in the circles of professional athletes as a “Miracle Man”, “a Genius” for the results he has been able to deliver in the area of sports injury treatment and prevention. A man passionate about eliminating chronic bio-mechanical injuries, Dr. Michael Hatrak has been in practice for over 35 years specializing in sports medicine and performance. He received his Doctor of Chiropractic in 1976 from New York Chiropractic College (Columbia Division). In 1979, he was a professor at Pennsylvania Chiropractic College while maintaining a private practice in Cherry Hill, New Jersey.
After years of research Dr. Hatrak came to the realization that Chiropractic care alone wasn’t enough to deliver the corrective care needed for professional athletes and the large increase of the “weekend warrior” crowd. Realizing there was a missing piece to the methods of treatments, Dr. Hatrak discovered a man by the name of John Patterson, an extraordinary individual with an uncanny ability to see interrelationships within the body’s bio-mechanical structure. Mr. Patterson shared Dr. Hatrak’s passion for finding the missing link. Dr. Hatrak studied with him, learning the guiding principles of his technology and later they joined together to call this unique system SRT (Synergy Release Therapy).
Dr. Hatrak owes his success to his friend and mentor, John Patterson who is the founding developer of this unique, one of a kind therapy that allows athletes to perform at their optimal level. In the last 20 years the SRT team of doctors and practitioners have worked with over 400 NFL players from over 27 teams as well and pro athletes from all sports, keeping them at the top of their game.
