Derek is a graduate of the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee. Some of his specialties include, Post-Concussion Syndrome, Vertigo, BPPV/Vestibular and Therapeutic Pain relief. Read why Derek got into physical therapy:
“What I love about Physical Therapy is that it's the perfect blend of two great interests of mine; people and the human body. My initial interest was in the subject matter about the human body. It seemed I couldn't learn enough about the fascinating ways our bodies work. I followed an educational path that ultimately led me to Physical Therapy, where educational information intersects with real world application. Interacting with the many unique individuals is truly rewarding as I get to learn more about them and share my knowledge with them as we work together to improve the patient's quality of life.”
