Practice Focus
I specialize in non-surgical treatment of muscle, joint, and bone issues.

I have particular expertise with the following:

- Musculoskeletal Ultrasound for diagnosis and treatment.
- Injection therapy, including prolotherapy and PRP (platelet-rich plasma).
- Concussion management utilizing ImPACT? neurocognitive testing.
- Fracture management, including reduction and manipulation.

Personal Bio & Interests

I was born and raised in Salt Lake City and love being in Utah. I especially enjoy the mountains (backcountry skiing and hiking) and the roads (running, cycling and triathlons). My wife Molly is a Bountiful native, an active runner, and triathlete. She is a professional home organizer and together we have five wonderful children: Cort, Macy, Caleb, and the twins, Jake and Emmy. As a family, we enjoy being outdoors, running, skiing, hiking, traveling, playing sports, and reading great books.
