Eric became a physical therapist to help others overcome injuries and daily obstacles. After a shoulder injury threatened his collegiate baseball career, Eric learned the importance of physical therapy. Today, he enjoys helping patients identify and work to achieve their own goals by guiding patients through strength training, movement based exercise, wellness education, and hands-on therapy.
In addition to general orthopedics, Eric has a special interest in working with athletes, having grown up playing sports (and later working as a coach, referee, and personal trainer). Eric currently holds his Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) certification through the NSCA and is completing coursework towards a certification in the McKenzie Method of Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy (MDT).
A native of San Francisco, but recent transplant from Chicago, Eric is looking forward to experiencing all the natural beauty that Eugene has to offer. When not in the clinic you can find him enjoying time with his wife and young daughter.
