John is a graduate of Springfield College where he received his Master of Science Degree in Physical Therapy in 2000. While enrolled at Springfield, he had the opportunity to complete an inpatient orthopedics internship in Birmingham, Alabama where he worked alongside world renowned Orthopedic Surgeon James Andrews and nationally renowned Physical Therapist Kevin Wilk. Rehabilitating professional athletes immediately out of surgery was a special experience that fit nicely with John’s background as a collegiate starting pitcher and NCAA 1st team All-New England Baseball All-Star. Immediately following graduation, John was a natural selection for a full-season sports medicine fellowship with the New England Patriots football team.
John transitioned into outpatient orthopedic care following his exciting stint in the NFL. He has since spent the past several years developing specific skills to assist patients of all abilities. His unique experiences have allowed him to develop a treatment approach that combines focused manual treatment, flexibility training, core stabilization, and a progressive strengthening program to help each patient achieve their maximum functional recovery. John has also worked in an industrial work hardening center where he had the opportunity to develop extensive work conditioning programs for a variety of occupational injuries. Regardless of the source of injury, John thoroughly evaluates each and every patient and works closely with them to develop their own individual goals and expectations of treatment to maximize their recovery in a timely manner.
