He was accepted into the Doctor of Physical Therapy program at Idaho State University in 2017.
Chad has an interest in manual therapy and he plans to continue to perfect his techniques through the North American Institute of Orthopedic Manual Therapy (NAIOMT). Currently, he holds his Level 1 Coaching certificate in USA Weightlifting. This allows him to address the functional deficits and biomechanical issues in athletes participating in Powerlifting, Olympic Weightlifting, and CrossFit.
Chad likes to provide an individual treatment approach for each patient where he designs the plan of care to achieve the patient’s goals and return them to their optimal level of function, whether that be playing with the kids, going for a hike, or running an obstacle race. He does this by combining his passion for manual therapy, exercise, and preventative care not just to treat his patients but educate them in proper mechanics and movement to prevent future injuries.
