Matt & Michelle, Thank you to you and your staff at Kinetic PT for coming to the Bishop Shanahan baseball camp this summer. We had over 40 kids at our first instructional camp and they all took something away from their time with your staff. I was amazed at how the kids connected with your instruction and how easily you kept their attention. The coaches got a lot of positive feedback from the kids. Thanks again for your coming out and we look forward to having you again next year.

I completed my Doctorate of Physical Therapy at Drexel University in 2006 and was the recipient of the Outstanding Orthopaedic Student Award and the Doctoral Research Award for my research and presentation on scapular biomechanics and dysfunction. I have been with Kinetic Physical Therapy since 2008 and am the Clinic Director of the Chester Springs and Downingtown offices. A life-long athlete and participant in football, basketball, and baseball, I understand the demands of sport and enjoy treating sports-related injuries. I have helped with the design and implementation of several injury prevention programs for baseball, tennis, lacrosse, gymnastics, and dance. I have also presented on the assessment and treatment of the core at Kinetic’s annual Pitcher’s Survival Guide. I believe in an evidence-based practice approach focusing on functional movement patterns and sport-specific training. I emphasize injury prevention through appropriate postural correction, core stability, and treatment of the entire athlete; the hallmarks of Kinetic’s Adolescent Sports Medicine Program. In my spare time, I coach kindergarten and 1st grade basketball for Upward Ministries and enjoy spending time with my wife and three children, Sydney, Samantha, and Leo. I am an avid New York sports fan and passionately follows the Jets, Yankees, and Syracuse Orange.
