Certified Hand Therapist
Matt graduated from University of Missouri- Columbia in 2009 with a Master’s in Occupational therapy. He then went on to acquire his Certified Hand Therapy credential in 2016, becoming a specialist in hand, wrist, elbow, and shoulder rehab. Matt has extensive experience treating complicated shoulder patients, ranging from conservative care to complete reconstruction. Matt will tell you his favorite part of the job is the interaction with his patients and the balance between laughing and hard work to achieve a great outcome. He also enjoys collaboration with all care team professionals either with colleagues in the clinic or physicians who refer care. “No two patients are the same even if they have similar injuries, and therefore, we must find the best way for each to reach their highest potential in therapy”.
He is an avid Kansas City Chiefs fan, never missing a game and with a goal to attend an away game in each of our division rivals’ stadiums. In their free time, Matt and his family enjoy travel of all kinds, some international, though most often can be found at Table Rock Lake or Colorado. There is no better day than hiking, biking, or skiing in the mountains followed by at sit down at a local brewery, in his opinion.
