“I happened to find Scott last fall after my insurance stopped covering my PT sessions for a torn piriformis & misaligned pelvis. Things were a little better, but I still wasn’t able to run without major pain. Within a few weeks of seeing him, I was able to run easier and start pushing my distance, and after a couple months I was back to doing 30-40 mile weeks. This month I ran a 25-mile race pain-free, and stronger than I’ve ever been. He is very patient and professional, has a good mix of manual therapy + exercise homework, and is always willing to take a look at other issues even if they have nothing to do with what you came in for (benefits of not going with insurance!). I have an arsenal of exercises and stretches that will support all my athletic activities, and won’t hesitate to call on him again if I have any other injuries in the future!”

“Scott helped me strengthen my ankle after a bad sprain! The certain exercises he created for me and his encouragement helped me regain confidence that I could do the activities I was doing pre-sprain. I enjoy the app as well because you mark off when you complete each exercise for the day which keeps me accountable and makes me feel accomplished for the day. He helped identify what muscles were still hurt from the sprain and helped them feel better through stretching, massage, as well as one dry needling procedure. Just by doing the exercises daily and a few weekly appointments, I’m now able to do my regular HITT workouts and run with full confidence again! I highly recommend him if you have anything going on and need to get back to feeling like your regular, strong self again!”
