I created this page with the intent to spread knowledge about physical therapy and health. This page will have content specifically for the general population and there will be posts that are specific to physical therapists.
With the rise of social media, there are people that prey on others with #fakenews, fear based tactics to take people’s money and overall spreading of misinformation. This page will have citations based on where I get my information from, which will come from published research and other professional publications. Every once in a while you may see videos of me going on rants because the spoken word can have more impact than that which is written.
If you are looking for information regarding your health, your wallet and your body then this is the site for you!
I was raised in a neighborhood in which the majority of people were in a gang, doing drugs or breaking laws. My brother died of a drug overdose and out of 7 kids, I am the only one to graduate from high school. This is not to brag, but I went on to get a doctorate degree in Physical Therapy. My parents divorced when I was a kid and my mom essentially walked out of my life. Sometimes life is not fair and other times we all feel hurt and misled. Since my childhood I have had a personal mission to help those that are hurting and try my best to protect others from being misled.
You can count on my words and action to be true. My peers have ranked me among the top 40 influential people in the profession of physical therapy, which is an honor in and of itself. I have not sought accolades throughout my career, but coming from a blue collar family I simply put my head down and work. This work has gained me a following in this profession and again I am humbled by this.
