John is an expert in the management of spinal dysfunctions and orthopedic problems of the extremities. “My 29 years of experience treating patients with musculoskeletal problems has taught me that listening to the patient’s concerns is one of the key elements to providing a successful outcome,” explains John. “I listen actively, so that I understand the problem from the patient’s perspective. Then, using my advanced training and their input, I can accurately assess the extent of the injury and what needs to be done to correct it.”

Once John evaluates the patient’s condition, he draws from a multitude of manual therapy techniques, from the most basic to some that require advanced skill to make changes in the patient’s dysfunction.

“Helping people regain their life is what inspires me to pursue excellence as a physical therapist. I love guiding people through the healing process—from the first treatment to that day when they no longer need my services.” John is also the co-inventor of the MyoTool, an innovative self-massage device that enables you to treat your own tightness, stiffness, and discomfort.
