Paul earned his Doctorate of Physical Therapy from the University of St. Augustine for Health Sciences in San Marcos, CA. He is a Licensed Physical Therapist in the state of California and an APTA Certified Clinical Instructor. Paul has worked with a variety of patients focused on post-operative care, athletic injuries, muscle imbalances, deconditioning, spinal conditions, and joint replacements. His clinical approach is focused on treating orthopedic conditions with progressive loading principles to improve our tissue capacity for our daily movements. He combines evidence-based treatment methods from manual therapy, blood flow restriction, strength training, and proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation techniques to reduce pain and improve strength/stability. He believes that identifying the root cause of a person’s condition and developing a sustainable treatment plan could reduce acute and chronic pain.
