Jon was born and raised in Saskatoon, SK, Canada; he moved to Oklahoma in 2000 and played four years of NCAA II baseball. He then attended PT school in Denver and graduated from Regis University with a Doctorate of Physical Therapy in 2007.
Jon has been fortunate to grow in the field of Chronic Pain management due to the confidence of his clientele in his ability to seek solutions to their concerns and limitations. He is frequently attending continuing education classes to further his ability to manage a wide range of problems and diagnosis. Chronic pain is not only those challenged with pain on a daily basis but address the nagging pain that seems to return with physical activity. He is very passionate about human movement education and helping to restore an individual’s freedom to live a healthy and active lifestyle. In addition to working in the clinic, Jon is able to travel with the Myopain Group to assist with lab instruction for the education of other clinicians on the technique of Trigger Point Dry Needling and the management of Myofascial Pain.
Sports Rehabilitation has been a focus for Jon for many years. Even before becoming a PT he spent time trying to work with his Teammates during the baseball season. Post-surgical rehabilitation can be very enjoyable and straight forward but Jon makes special attention to detail ensuring the most optimal recovery and return to sport possible. By utilizing the most up-to-date methodology for rehab and providing 1 on 1 care we are able to find superior outcomes in all aspects of post-surgical client management.
Outside of work Jon is busy with his own wellness and fitness with a passion of collecting and working with Kettlebells, being part of the CrossFit Community, mountain biking throughout the region, and being outdoors. His true gifts from God are his Wife Gretchen, whom is the best supporting partner he could imagine, and his amazing children Sloane and James. They are busy bodies like their parents and will forever be a joy to be with.
