Joe works with a wide range of patient populations utilizing the principles of MDT and functional exercise to determine the specific source of his patient’s pain, with a goal of facilitating optimal recovery and independent management. He has a special interest in sports rehabilitation, particularly with runners. He utilizes slow-motion video for running gait analysis to assess gait, alignment, and biomechanics with the goal of helping runners recover from and decrease the likelihood of injury. In addition to clinical practice, Joe is adjunct faculty to the Pacific University School of Physical Therapy where he assists in teaching the Human Anatomy and Orthopedics content in the program. He also guest lectures on the use of MDT within patient management.
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 paddleboarding 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.
