Brandon has a passion for treating all injuries — additionally, he has developed a subspecialty in treating painful shoulders.  For the past 10 years Brandon has worked alongside some of the best Orthopaedic Physicians in the region.  Extensive training with Physicians coupled with the opportunity to treat an abundance of orthopaedic injuries has provided Brandon with the skillset needed to provide patients an effective rehabilitation experience.

Brandon was a former Major League pitching prospect, but unfortunately suffered a rupture of his ulnar collateral ligament early in his career. In a quest to help others not endure the same injury, Brandon has developed a specialty in pitching biomechanics. Brandon has helped several youth, high school, college, and professional pitchers return to competition following major injury.
