Joe chose Physical Therapy as a profession after observing the impact on a patient's function and their families during a high school career development class. Right then he knew PT was what he was meant to do, and he's moved forward with a passion for creating impact in the lives of all he serves. Once he began practicing, he realized, not only does he impact the lives of his client, each client and their journey also has a huge impact on his life. During his day, he loves educating patients to empower them during their exercises but also in their activities outside the clinic. He chose CORE Strategies PT for the personalized care we give to each patient during their session and for the awesome colleagues he gets to work with each day who keep him laughing and growing.
Joe loves the variety of patients he gets to see working at CORE Strategies PT. He loves working with youth populations, treating balance disorders, and shoulder conditions. The one thing he wishes everyone knew about the physical therapy is how many other conditions we treat. Physical therapy is not just for post-operative care. It does not always include lifting heavy weights. Rather, a Doctor of Physical Therapy treats a wide array of conditions including orthopedic issues, neurological conditions, balance problems, dizziness, and many more. No two conditions are treated the same and all programming is tailored to the unique needs of each individual.
Joe grew up in Apple Valley, MN which is a southern suburb to the Twin Cities much like Overland Park is to KC. He obtained his undergraduate degree at St John's University in Collegeville, MN and earned his Doctor of Physical Therapy degree from Creighton University in Omaha, NE. In his free time, Joe loves getting outside and playing sports. His current interests include Pickleball, volleyball, disc golf, and golf. He enjoys staying active, walking, and cross training endeavors to manage his own fitness.
