Continual Pursuit of Knowledge and Education

While playing collegiate baseball at West Texas A&M, I was introduced to Physical Therapy by a professor and immediately knew it was my future. After my baseball career ended, I began my education toward my Doctorate at Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center in Amarillo, TX. I moved to New Braunfels following graduation with my wife, Leslie. I immediately began an orthopedic residency at Evidence in Motion, and received my Orthopedic Specialist Certification in 2012. 

Providing Quality Care

I believe strongly in evidence-based medicine and continue to search for skills and knowledge to make my patients feel better, faster. My practice includes multiple manual therapy techniques, and supportive exercises specifically tailored to each patient using the best current evidence.

Serving My Community

I strive to share my knowledge learned while playing collegiate baseball whenever possible. I have worked with local athletes of several sports at both the high school and college level, as well as the weekend warrior. I also enjoy giving back to the community by participating in local fundraising events and sharing my knowledge with those in need. 

Currently, I spend most of my spare time with my wife and our two daughters, Tenley and Annalie. I can also be found playing golf, and watching the Boston Red Sox!

Licensures and Education:

  • Texas State Board of Physical Therapy Examiners

  • Bachelor of Science in Biology, St. Edward's University, Austin, TX

  • Master of Physical Therapy, University of Tx Health Science Center, San Antonio, TX 1999


Continual Pursuit of Knowledge and Education

I believe in physical therapy, as in life, one should continue to learn and grow as a person. I have spent the last 14 years working with other therapists refining manual therapy techniques and specific sports training for the recreational, as well as, the advanced athlete.


Providing Quality Care

Patient education and understanding of the healing process are of the utmost importance to me in providing quality care. A Patient's care goes beyond just the time that they are being treated in physical therapy. By the time a patient is discharged from therapy, I believe they should have the knowledge and understanding of the importance of continues physical maintenance of their body to ensure prolonged physical and mental health.


Serving My Community

I have been fortunate to play soccer at the professional level and work with college and professional athletes. I have good understanding of not only the physical, but also the mental demands required to play and succeed at the professional level. Currently, most of my extra time is consumed by being a coach for my two daughters in their sports activities and being involved in their education.

Continual Pursuit of Knowledge and Education

As a former collegiate athlete, I know the importance of refining and perfecting skills to be the very best you can be.  That holds true also for the way I approach life and my role as a physical therapist/athletic trainer at New Braunfels Sports & Spine Physical Therapy.  Through interactions with other physical therapists and athletic trainers, and continuing education opportunities, I hope to provide patients of all ages with care that is the very best.

Providing Quality Care

In caring for patients, I hope to not only provide them with exercise that may improve function and quality of life, but also an understanding of the importance of maintaining a healthy lifestyle.  I hope to do this through education so, that following discharge, the patient will be able to continue with maintenance of their condition and know ways to prevent further injury.

Serving My Community

Having grown up in a small town in Georgia, I know how important looking after the guy next to you truly is.  I hope to continue this trend in my new home of New Braunfels and serve the community during my time at New Braunfels Sports & Spine Physical Therapy. "Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body."  - 1 Corinthians 6:19-20

Continual Pursuit of Knowledge and Education

I believe the key to providing quality upper extremity rehabilitation is two fold: 1. A solid education which is ongoing and 2. Experience gained through close communication with doctors and other clinicians regarding treatment of the vast array of upper extremity disorders. In order to achieve this, I aligned myself with those who had significant influence and experience in treating disorders of upper extremity such as: orthopedic surgeons, plastic surgeons, physical medicine and rehabilitation physicians and occupational therapists; through a mentoring type relationship with a goal of improving trust and clinical skill in a challenging yet supportive environment.

Providing Quality Care

Communication between the disciplines is paramount in the quest for increasing quality of service delivery (with respect to the diversity between diagnoses and treatment options available) for each individual patient. I have been driven to gain a greater understanding with regard to the complexity of the upper extremity (from shoulder to finger tip) with increasing respect and sense of awe. Realizing that after 15 years, there is still much to learn in order to be as effective as I would like to be. In short, the more I learn, the more humble I become.

Serving My Community

As a member of the team here at New Braunfels Sports and Spine Physical Therapy, it is my goal to use the knowledge and experience to provide the highest quality care of the patient with upper extremity disorders in a manner that is both compassionate and honoring to God.
