Scott has been a licensed physical therapist for over 30 years. For the last 15 years of his practice, Scott has specialized in Neuro-Fascial Release technique.
Neuro-Fascial Release is a type of cranial based, light touch bodywork, which works at the levels of the intercellular fluid and fascial connective tissue and can be useful in the treatment of many conditions. Because few other modalities work at this level, Neuro-Fascial Release is often helpful in relieving problems that “just won’t go away” with any other treatment. Fascia is connective tissue in the body — it surrounds and permeates all the organs and structures of our bodies, holds things in place and gives us form, strength and support. We can imagine ourselves wearing a bodysuit of fascia. Problems arise when there are twists or pulls in the fascia caused by trauma or poor posture. These strains can put pressure on other structures, which inhibits movement or function or causes pain. The problems are seldom relieved until the fascial strain is released. This is often seen with accident patients that still have pain even though everything seems in place, many of these patients that get discharged with painkillers and little hope could benefit greatly from Neuro-Fascial Release.
In reflecting on his recovery process after receiving treatment for Leukemia, he recognized that many types of treatments were necessary for optimal healing. Scott continues to practice this philosophy utilizing both traditional and non-traditional treatment approaches as he develops programs and assists his patients. Working with many types of athletes Scott found it beneficial for his clients to become a certified Retül and USA Cycling Certified Coach. Perceiving the importance of food and nutrition for wellness, Scott pursued formal culinary training. He is married and the father of two children. He loves to bicycle, exercise, and cook healthy meals.
