I am a Board-Certified Orthopedic Specialist and have over 25 years of experience in orthopedics and sports medicine. I became certified in dry needling in 2011 and continue to use the technique extensively in my clinical practice. I was instrumental in developing the dry needling program at Advocate Aurora Health Care in Wisconsin and continue to serve as a leader and mentor. Since 2013, I have been the primary Physical Therapist for the Milwaukee Admirals professional hockey team (AHL) and work in close collaboration with the team Athletic Trainers, Physicians, Strength Coach, and Chiropractor. I am experienced in all aspects of orthopedics and sports medicine and am well versed in manual techniques for the spine and extremities, corrective exercise, and strength and conditioning.
