Joe joined Advance Sports and Spine Therapy in 2015 after graduating from Pacific University with his Doctorate in Physical Therapy and a Bachelor’s Degree in Exercise Science: Integrated Physiology.
Passionate about lifelong education, he has since gone on to earn several post graduate certifications:
- MDT: Certification in Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy
- OCS: Board Certified Orthopedic Clinical Specialist
- ASTYM: Certified Provider through Performance Dynamic
In addition to his clinical work, Joe works as an adjunct faculty member to Pacific University’s School of Physical Therapy where he assists in teaching Human Anatomy and Orthopedics. He occasionally guest lectures on the use of MDT within patient management as well.
While Joe works with a wide range of patient populations, he holds a special interest in sports rehabilitation, particularly with a focus in running. He has become the Advance Sports and Spine Therapy running specialist, completing many courses in rehabilitation and performance.
Outside of the clinic, Joe enjoys all the outdoor activities that Oregon and the Pacific Northwest has to offer. During the summer months you can find him hiking, backpacking, and rock climbing all over the mountains and stand-up paddle boarding on any reasonably warm water he can find. In the winter months he is a dedicated backcountry skier and travels all over the PNW to find the best snow.
