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.
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 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.
Experience has taught me that along with proven scientific principles of physiology and healing, each client is an individual and their rehabilitation must be approached uniquely. I believe that rehabilitation is a partnership between client and Physical Therapist. Setting goals and planning together provides the best and most meaningful outcomes. It is this creativity and adaptive approach that continues to motivate me to be best I can be for my clients.
