GCS, CSCS, TSAC-F, CIDN, IASTM, GTC, RockTape FMT
I have been a Physical Therapist for going over 25 years, and treat the whole person from 18-???. I am a UMAB graduate, a degree in Exercise Physiology, was a prior Active Duty PT Officer in the Navy and Army, deployed on the USNS COMFORT, Bethesda Naval Hospital, Newport Naval Hospital, and recently as a sub-contractor through EXOS as a Tactical Physical Therapist at Fort Bragg, NC with the 3rd Special Forces Group. I received my DPT from the EIM/NeuroRTI/Dana & Christopher Reeve Foundation in Neurological Rehabilitation. Additionally, I previously held the Orthopedic Clinical Specialist through the APTA , which I will renew in 3/17 along with the Neurological Clinical Specialist exams. In addition to IDN, I have had advanced training at WOMAC, Fort Bragg with Double EE Dry Needling also. My manual training has been Osteopathic Manipulation based, and Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM) with HawkGrips. Lastly I am an approved Specialist with Functional Movement Taping (FMT) via RockTape. IDN is the best form of DN treatment one can receive as I have obviously trained under other "Models" for comparisons sake, so do find a CIDN practitioner for you musculoskeletal needs.
