My passion for helping people to achieve their goals and stay healthy developed from dealing with injuries myself throughout years of playing sports and training. I’ve felt first hand the difficulty and disappointment of not being able to participate in the activities that make me happy without pain. Most recently I was training for my first half Ironman and began experiencing significant low back pain and numbness down my left leg. I was unable to run more than 5-10 minutes without significant pain. The frustration of not being able to do the things that I love due to pain, forced me to learn more about how to train hard while training smart to reach my goals. The more I learned, the more I realized that with a good plan, pain did not have to stop me from striving towards my goals. This is exactly what I love to help my patients and athletes do every single day.

I graduated from Ohio State with an undergraduate degree in Nutrition and then went on to earn my Doctorate in Physical Therapy from the University of Cincinnati in 2016. Since PT school, my primary focus has been working with patients and athletes with orthopedic and sports related problems. In my treatments, I utilize hands on manual therapy techniques including dry needling, joint mobilizations, and manipulations to address your pain first and then prescribe specific exercises to help you eliminate the pain for good. I always make sure my patients know the root cause of the problem and what things they can do in order to manage and eliminate the problem moving forward.

I love to treat neck, shoulder, low back and knee pain, but what I really love is putting the entire puzzle together. Pain is complex and requires a zoomed out approach in order to get to the root cause of the problem. Helping patients understand every variable that can play into their symptoms helps us to team up to systematically check each relevant piece to the puzzle that is their pain. This type of approach helps us to work together to come up with an individualized plan that addresses all of the problem areas and ultimately keeps you healthy and training towards your goals.

When I’m not helping patients, I love to stay active in both CrossFit and endurance sports. I’m currently training for my second Ironman 70.3. I live in Gahanna with my wife Megan where we love to check out new trails at the local Metro parks and spend quality time with our families.
