Derek brings to our team the unique perspective of being a professional athlete and a physical therapist. He is Maitland trained with a clinical focus on manual therapies including but not limited to Maitland mobilizations, soft tissue release, and dry needling. Derek’s approach focuses on manual techniques in early-stage rehab that reduce pain and improve mobility, which allows his patients to exercise without aggravating symptoms. In conjunction with manual therapies, he uses an exercise-based rehab approach that is essential to help his patients return to function and/or participation in sports and hobbies. Derek’s extensive experience with running-athlete profiling programs and functional movement screenings alongside internationally renowned strength and conditioning coaches has provided him with a unique perspective in rehabilitating a wide variety of patients to their previous functional level. Derek has been with the Compleat Team since 2013.
