Jason currently serves as a physical therapist for a special operations unit in the US Army. He has been a member of a multidisciplinary team for most of his career that began in the athletic training room at the University of South Dakota in 1995. After receiving his Master’s degree in Physical Therapy in 2000, he was able to spend 3 years with the Los Angeles Dodgers and 4 years with the Seattle Mariners working side by side with esteemed physicians, physical therapists, athletic trainers, and strength and conditioning professionals. He has been certified as a strength and conditioning specialist since 1998 and as an athletic trainer since 2001. Jason received a manual therapy certification and a t-DPT from the University of St. Augustine in 2006 and 2008 respectively. He is a Board Certified Orthopaedic Clinical Specialist and finished the Evidence in Motion Orthopaedic Manual Physical Therapy Fellowship program in 2012. He now serves as faculty in this fellowship program with a focus in the clinical reasoning courses.
Jason’s approach to his clinical practice and clinical mentoring is grounded in a desired understanding of the complex human condition. He not only attempts to view the patient in a monistic biopsychosocial manner, but also strives to appraise the critical thinking of the PT and the effects this has on the PT-patient dynamic. Jason attempts to continuously advance his appreciation of the cognitive sciences, pain neurophysiology, manual therapy, and exercise conditioning.
