Our Practice


Providing recoveries with compassion and care in mid-Michigan since 2009

Welcome to 5 Star Physical Therapy Specialists, conveniently located in DeWitt immediately off I-69. Here, our professionals know that physical therapy is more than just going through a checklist: it’s about understanding our patients and their needs. It’s about prolonging the simple joy of movement to improve function without pain! Our mission is to optimize our expertise, experience, and care to promote a recovery with compassionate methods.  

We aim to educate our patients in a safe, comfortable environment while offering them necessary comprehensive care. We understand that many people can be nervous or anxious about physical therapy treatment, so we created a soothing environment and a scheduling system that never keeps you waiting long. Patients are provided direct, one on one care during treatment sessions and we do not double book in order to maintain high quality throughout each episode of care. By combining the latest technology with advanced and traditional techniques, we set a high standard of care for our patients.


Ryan Raborn, PT, DPT, OMPT

Hailing from mid-Michigan, Dr. Ryan Raborn brings the perfect blend of compassion and blue collar work ethic to all his patients. He has been a resident in DeWitt for over five years and has embraced the community with his family: wife, three children, and dog.  His educational foundation was built at Michigan State University where he received a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology and Exercise Science in 2004.   Raborn wanted to keep building his expertise as he received his Doctorate in Physical Therapy (DPT) in 2008 from Oakland University.  He learned there was more potential for him to treat his patients so he completed a two year residency training in Orthopedic Manual Physical Therapy (OMPT) where he received his Graduate Certificate in 2011.

Before opening 5 Star Physical Therapy Specialists in 2018, he helped thousands of patients with three different physical therapy organizations over nine years. He is part of the APTA (American Physical Therapy Association) and stays up-to-date on the latest physical therapy discoveries. When not striving to keep his patients happy and healthy, he enjoys playing basketball, trying to keep up with his three young boys and spending quality time with his friends and family.
