John strives to be a great physical therapist every day, prioritizing his desire to help, the ability to teach, and motivation to always get better. His approach is patient-centered and evidence-based, with sound clinical reasoning.
His love of sports is what led him to his career in sports medicine; John earned his bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology with an emphasis on athletic training. While in school, he worked with collegiate athletes in the training room (and the sidelines) which gave him valuable hands-on experience with sports-related injuries. After college, he earned his master’s degree in Physical Therapy from CSU Sacramento, and has continued his education via professional courses throughout his career. In 2008, he became a Certified Orthopedic Manual Therapist after completing a year-long seminar through Maitland Australian Physiotherapy Seminars (MAPS), and in 2009, he became an Orthopedic Clinical Specialist through the American Board of Physical Therapy Specialties.
He’s been in private practice for eight years and worked with Stanford Health Care for six, treating a wide range of patients ranging from professional athlete to geriatric, and everything in-between. John enjoyed providing mentorship to residents at Stanford, and performing lectures regarding Lumbar Spine Evaluation, Cervical Spine Mobilization, Return to Sport, and Running Biomechanics. He’s also been a guest lecturer at Samuel Merritt University, educating on Return to Sport for the Upper and Lower Extremity.
John has been happily married since 2005 and is the proud father of two wonderful children. In his free time, he enjoys jiu-jitsu, baseball, basketball, running, snowboarding, golf, and being active in general. He’s thrilled to be part of the Crossover Health team and looks forward to helping patients reach their goals.
