I believe in physical therapy, as in life, one should continue to learn and grow as a person. I have spent the last 14 years working with other therapists refining manual therapy techniques and specific sports training for the recreational, as well as, the advanced athlete.
Physical Therapy is a science and an art. I believe there are many tools and approaches to help you get better. That being said, each treatment may vary to make your treatment the most effective. Among many techniques, a few tools I like to utilize are Instrumented Assisted STM, taping, myofascial decompression (cup therapy) with neuromuscular re-education and specific exercises tailored to your individualized rehab program.
While playing collegiate baseball at West Texas A&M, I was introduced to Physical Therapy by a professor and immediately knew it was my future. After my baseball career ended, I began my education toward my Doctorate at Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center in Amarillo, TX. I moved to New Braunfels following graduation with my wife, Leslie. I immediately began an orthopedic residency at Evidence in Motion, and received my Orthopedic Specialist Certification in 2012.
I was introduced to physical therapy in the 8th grade when I sustained an injury of my own and I knew from then I wanted to pursue a career in physical therapy. I love how multi-faceted physical therapy is and I enjoy helping my patients return to doing things they love, or simply making them feel better on a daily basis. Physical therapy allows me to spend quality time with my patients to provide the best care and truly get to know them and how their injury is affecting their personal life. Physical therapy is an evolving profession and I look forward to growing and evolving along with it throughout my career.

I believe the key to providing quality upper extremity rehabilitation is two fold: 1. A solid education which is ongoing and 2. Experience gained through close communication with doctors and other clinicians regarding treatment of the vast array of upper extremity disorders. In order to achieve this, I aligned myself with those who had significant influence and experience in treating disorders of upper extremity such as: orthopedic surgeons, plastic surgeons, physical medicine and rehabilitation physicians and occupational therapists; through a mentoring type relationship with a goal of improving trust and clinical skill in a challenging yet supportive environment.
