My Areas of Practice

I have been a physical therapist since 1998. I specialize in Maitland - Australian Approach of Manual Therapy. It has been a great and rewarding experience to be able to change patients' lives for the better. Growing up in Europe, living and getting my education in Canada and now practicing in the USA allows me to offer my patients a unique approach to treatment.  I have played soccer since I was a small child.  I am also a former soccer goalkeeper coach in the state of Minnesota. I enjoy running, skiing and weight lifting. Those are just some of the reasons why I enjoy working with athletes of all ages. I specialize in: spine (neck & back), sports medicine, orthopedics (shoulder, hip, knee & ankle), orthotics and post-surgical patients.

I am married to my beautiful wife Anna, who is an ICU nurse and I have two great kids, Patrick and Dominik. I work with a group of people and for an organization that are absolutely terrific. Warren Buffett once said: "Find your passion and you will never have to work one day in your life." I was lucky enough to find not only one, but two. Being a physical therapist is one those passions. In my free time, I read as much as I can and when I get tired, I take a nap and then read some more. As the 17th Century French philospher Rene Descarter said: "The reading of all good books is like conversation with the finest minds of the past centuries.".....Charlie Munger added: "I have never met anyone successful who did not read.".....I don't compete with anyone because competition is negative, nonproductive and takes valuable energy away from things that actually matter in life. Competition focuses on shortage instead of abundance, emphasizes weakness instead of strength. The only person I do however compete with is myself.......because every time I win, my competitor gets better. I love to work on improving my financial IQ through studying economics, finance and value investing. People who made the biggest difference in my life include: Warren Buffett, Benjamin Graham, Peter Lynch, Philip Fisher, Charlie Munger, Robert Shiller, Bernard Baruch, John "Jack" Bogle and of course Albert....Albert Einstein that is (hint: it has nothing to do with General Theory of Relativity or Quantum Mechanics).

To all of them I will be indebted forever.
