Colin graduated from physical therapy school at the University of Southern California in 2010. He views physical therapy as a craft and profession, not a job. Beyond acquiring more technical skills, listening and examining between the lines has been his greatest secret to having his patients achieve meaningful goals. He most enjoys treating orthopedic conditions and injuries of all body parts where the pain does not have a clear beginning to the patient. Unclear beginnings of pain create frustration and stress for the patient. Colin loves doing the required detective work to figure out the root cause of the issue that is preventing patients from doing what they love most. By finding the root cause, patients are educated to make more informed decisions and reduce the risk of re-injury in the future. Additionally, Colin treats patients with temporomandibular dysfunction (TMJ) and vertigo or BPPV.
His professional passions and dreams have always been to lead, encourage and motivate staff in a workplace environment that viewed its patients as the most important person in the company. Getting to know what is most important in our patients’ lives is a central focus of Kaizen Physical Therapy. The goal of this company wide attitude and mindset is to tap into the basic human need to feel connected. By achieving this goal patients feel less stressed and more confident again.
