Treatment Areas of Interest:
I enjoy treating and helping all ranges of patients, but have an increased curiosity in sports related rehabilitation and the return to sport process.
Why I became a Physical Therapist:
Throughout my high school and collegiate football career, I unfortunately had a number of injuries that kept me off the field. Throughout this stage in my life, I fell in love with the rehabilitation process and returning to the sport. Later in life, after football, this process has evolved from not only helping individuals return to sport, but overall decreasing their pain. I enjoy helping people improve their ability to perform daily life activities and educating on the importance of implementing an exercise regimen.
What I feel are the most important qualities in a physical therapist
I believe that listening and understanding the complete situation for each patient coming to physical therapy is essential in a successful rehabilitation. Taking in a full assessment of not only a patient’s physical condition, but emotional and mental condition allows a rapport to be built between the patient and therapist. With a trusting relationship and hard work ready to be done, any goal is achievable.
Personal interests & hobbies:
I grew up playing football and basketball. After playing football at Ursinus College, I now stay active by powerlifting training and running.
I am a Philadelphia sports fan, GO BIRDS! Outside of physical therapy and sports, I enjoy going on hikes with my wife and playing nostalgic video games.
