He has worked in a variety of health care settings, and has worked with Dr. Amy Valenta and Dr. Scott Bainbridge since 2005 focusing on spine and sport related injuries. Brent has been trained in a variety of manual therapy techniques geared towards decreasing pain and increasing function. Some of his continuing education and specialized training includes Muscle Energy Techniques, Cranio-Sacral Therapy, Mulligan Mobilization Techniques, Maitland Joint Mobilization and Strain Counterstrain Soft Tissue Techniques.
Golf is a major passion of Brent’s, as is, helping others get back to playing and enjoying a sport that he loves. Because of this, Brent became a certified golf fitness instructor in the “Back to Golf” program in early 2000.
In April 2015, Brent achieved certification as a Titleist level 1 certified golf fitness provider. While Brent believes that manual therapy is a huge part of any skilled physical therapy program, he also believes in the importance of exercise. He is currently studying to become a Nationally Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist in order to better be able to assist patients with achieving their goals. He believes in an eclectic approach in treating patients and in educating patients so that they can treat themselves once they’re done with physical therapy. When Brent is not in the clinic he enjoys spending time with his wife and two children.
