Making your physical therapy a personal, positive experience.
“As a physical therapist and as a former patient, I know it’s not easy dealing with pain or a health problem that’s keeping you from functioning normally. So when you come to my office, I make it as comfortable as possible for you. Our entire practice is designed to give you one-on-one, focused attention that helps you get the most from your therapy.
“Over the years, I’ve found that creating a trusting relationship with the person I’m working with is just as important as any of the treatments, exercises or technologies we use in physical therapy. I want you to know what to expect, to be involved in your recovery and to always feel that you’re really being listened to and understood. This personal attention can help you feel more at ease, and I also think it’s key to getting you back to your life, feeling your best. Helping you get better while giving you a positive experience with physical therapy… That’s why I love what I do.”
In his free time, John enjoys spending time with his family. His wife, Heather, works as the office manager in the practice, and they have two children, Bryce and Ella.
