Bobby specializes in orthopedic manual physical therapy of the cervical, thoracic and lumbar spine. Although the spine is his specialty, Bobby has a high level of training in all regions of the body. After receiving his undergraduate degree from the University of Colorado, Bobby earned a Doctorate in Physical Therapy from Regis University in Denver, Colorado. Post-graduation, Bobby became a Certified Orthopedic Manual Therapist (COMT), Diplomat of Manual Therapy (Dip. MT), as well as becoming certified in trigger point dry needling. Bobby then went on to become Fellowship trained through the Institute of Manipulative Physiotherapy and Clinical Training (IMPACT). Bobby was designated as a “Fellow” with the American Academy of Manual Physical Therapy (AAOMPT) after passing a rigorous oral and practical exam. Only a very small percentage of physical therapists achieve this elite status. The “Fellow” is a physical therapist who has demonstrated advanced clinical, analytical, and hands-on skills in the treatment of musculoskeletal orthopedic disorders and is internationally recognized for their competence and expertise in the practice of manual physical therapy. Bobby achieved an Emory University Certified Vestibular Specialist: 2019 designation due to advanced training and examination from the Emory University Vestibular Rehabilitation Competency-Based Course. This coursework is the gold standard in vestibular continuing education. The course is an intense, evidence-based course designed for physical therapists, occupational therapists and MDs with experience treating patients with vestibular deficits. Bobby is treating vestibular clients who are experiencing dizziness, vertigo, and balance issues in the Excel PT Bozeman office, located at 19th and College streets. Specific treatment interests include Meniere’s disease, benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV), vestibular neuritis, ototoxicity, nystagmus, labyrinthitis, vestibular hypofunction, acoustic neuroma, concussion, stroke, and vestibular migraines.
Bobby’s philosophy consists of using knowledge, skill and experience to provide the best physical therapy possible to help his patients achieve their goals.Bobby enjoys cooking, reading, yoga, and adventuring through the mountains and rivers of the west with his Newfoundland, Clarence.
I went to three other PT clinics, two orthopedic surgeons, and several other practitioners before I was referred to you. In a few short weeks at your clinic, my neck and back pain is dramatically improved, I understand my problem, and now have the correct exercises so that I can help myself.”-Bozeman PatientView more testimonials from Excel PT clients »
