Get to Know PAUL My other passion along with physical therapy is working with golfers. In 2006, I began working with numerous PGA/ LPGA tour players on physical therapy needs. This reignited my golf passion. Because, not only could I use my physical therapy skills, I could pull in my biomechanics background, fitness and wellness skills. I then began training with the Titelist Performance Institute in California to further develop my understanding of the golf swing biomechancs and how they could affect the body. I have since completed numerous courses and obtained my Level 3 Medical Professional certification, Level 2 Golf Biomechanics certification, Level 3 Golf Fitness certification and Level 3 Junior Golf Coach certification. My last certification through Titleist has created a paradigm shift in my thinking about training juniors with regards to sports. We will be working towards educating the junior athlete, parents, and coaches. I feel that there needs to be a change in how we train the junior athlete based on research into Long Term Athletic Development (LTAD). Our program is based on the athletes biological/developmental "age", not chronological age. During my years of working in the physical therapy field, I have seen many changes. But, the philosophy I have stuck to as both the Director of Rehab in the hospital, or as the owner of a growing private practice is: Provide high quality, direct one-on-one treatments based on each individuals needs. I am married and have two great boys which I get to enjoy Boy Scouting: camping, hiking, and much, much more...I also enjoy getting to the links as time allows. . Professional
Following graduation, I began working at the hospital in San Marcos in their in-patient department. My bigger challenge was to begin developing a new out-patient department and wellness center to be located on site. Within a year we had developed the areas premier out-patient department specializing in orthopedic rehab, stroke rehab, and became an accredited advanced wound care clinic. Following graduation from Texas State, I began courses and became certified through the McKenzie Institute to develop a better understanding of the mechanical issues relating to neck and lower back pain. I have also recently completed the certification program through the Manual Therapy Institute of Texas, to advance my orthopedic manual skills. . Education
I obtained my undergraduate degree form Angelo State University in Biology/Physics, with an Minor in Biomechanics and I then attended Texas State University were I obtained my degree in Physical Therapy in 1994.
