Jeff was born and raised in Scottsdale. He earned his Bachelors degree in Athletic Training at North Central College in Naperville, Illinois, where he also played four years of football and one year of baseball. After tiring of the months of the prolonged cold and snow and a lack of mountains to play on, Jeff returned home to pursue his Doctorate degree in Physical Therapy from A.T. Still University in Mesa, Arizona.
Jeff’s passion for orthopedics, sports medicine and sports performance has come from being both a patient and a practitioner. He finds no better experience than watching a patient progress beyond their goals when the problem and dysfunctions are fixed rather than just the alleviation of pain. Jeff has an extensive background in orthopedic conditions, biomechanics and kinesiology and has received additional clinical education in trigger point dry needling, SI joint dysfunction, gait mechanics/training, orthotic fabrication and Kinesiotaping. Jeff is a proud member of the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) and the Orthopedics Section as well as the American Academy of Orthopedic Manual Physical Therapists.
Jeff was married in 2005 to his wife, Tara, and they have two boys, Daniel and Tyler. In his spare time, he enjoys working out, wakesurfing, snow skiing, playing soccer, hockey and outdoor activities with his family.
