I have extensive and ongoing training in manual therapy and therapeutic exercise. I am a Certified Clinical Instructor for the American Physical Therapy Association. I have my certification in Integrated Manual Therapy (CIMT) with Great Lake Seminars. I am also a golf professional specialist through the Gray Institute® and Nike Golf®.
