About Marc Luko
Marc Luko understands injured athletes. At 16 years old he found himself in the physician’s office being told that nothing could be done for his right knee pain besides…stopping running, which he could not do!
Frustrated by the lack of advice he received, Marc went looking for other solutions to get him back on the track running. That’s when he was introduced to the world of Athletic Training and Physical Therapy.
As a former college athlete plagued with injuries and few solutions, Marc gets it. He has faced many of the same challenges you face today. He knows what it’s like to be scared about whether you’ll ever be able to be active again. It’s physically and emotionally devastating to not be able to participate in the workouts and sports you love.
Let’s be honest - it’s scary when you don’t know how you’re ever going to get back to doing the workouts and sports you love, especially if your doctor only offered pain medications or injections and you’re so busy with work and family that it’s hard to find time to search for other solutions.
Marc has figured out how to keep active adults and athletes in the game, doing their workouts, and being active for life. That’s why he started Optimal Performance and Reconditioning - to make sure that no one has to suffer from the lack of care like he did as a 16 year-old.
If you’re serious about getting back to the workouts and sports you love, then Optimal Performance and Reconditioning is the place for you.
