I am a Doctor of Physical therapy practicing in Upstate NY. I graduated from Utica College with a Bachelors of Science in Health Studies and a Doctorate in Physical Therapy. I currently work in a private outpatient setting, treating mainly patients with spine-related injuries. In addition to working with the general public, I have worked with professional athletes, powerlifters, and recreational lifters. However, the majority of the patients I see have persistent symptoms often lasting decades. Over the last 12 months, I was ranked in the top 5% in orthopedic outcomes internationally in FOTO, a standardized outcome tool used in rehab. I also have advanced training in McKenzie (Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy) and as a Primary Spine Provider with Blue Cross Blue Shield. I very much believe in being an educator first and therapist second. Many conditions involve teaching someone information about their body in an easy to digest manner. If I am doing my job, not only am I helping to guide someone through their current musculoskeletal issue, but teaching them how to prevent future issues.
