James’ interest in physical therapy came from watching/playing sports and wanting to understand the associated injuries/rehab. During a five year enlistment he experienced a few injuries that required physical therapy and drew him to the study of physical therapy upon discharge. James finds it extremely rewarding to help patients not only return to work, but back to enjoying their lives.
