Brian grew up in Orange County, California. He received his B.S. in Kinesiology from Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo and his M.S. in Physical Therapy form Cal State Northridge. He is married and has 2 young sons. His athletic background includes playing soccer, baseball, basketball, tennis, golf, swimming, running, biking, downhill and cross country skiing. He has completed 19 marathons, 10 triathlons, and 1 ultra-marathon.
I believe in a functional approach to physical therapy treatment. It is important to have a good understanding of the patient's goals as opposed to developing a treatment plan generated around pain management.
My professional goal is for my patients to develop a strong appreciation of the value of exercise, not only for the rehabilitation of their injury, but for the enhancement of their overall quality of life.
I am currently active in competitive distance running and come from a strong athletic background. As a result, I enjoy working with athletes of all sports and skill levels and focus my practice on movement based activities.
