Physical Therapist

With a dual degree in physical therapy and athletic training, Casey specializes in the rehab and performance training of athletes. He is one of the few Titleist Performance Institute (TPI) Certified Level I trainers in the DC-Metro region. His golf performance training programs help evaluate a golfer for physical limitations which can inhibit swing efficiency, durability, and, ultimately, enjoyment of the game. Through an in-depth screening process, he can quickly identify the key area that can be holding a golfer back from playing their best. We call this the Body-Swing Connection. He then works with his clients to develop a custom plan to overcome the challenges they are experiencing.

He has treated and trained athletes at the Olympic, professional and collegiate level including Cornell University Wrestling (3 National Champions), the Miami Dolphins, the US Women’s National Indoor Field Hockey Team, and top-ranked amateur golfers.

His practice also incorporates expertise in aquatic therapy providing patients, clients, and athletes an innovative environment for healing and training. Through the use of the Hydroworx® aquatic treadmill he rehabs and trains clients in a near-weightless environment and at a therapeutic temperature. These factors reduce the impact on joints and promote range of motion while replicating the proper biomechanics of land-based movements to improve gait patterns.

Casey’s personal motto, “from start to finish” reflects that he is his patient’s teammate, sharing the same goal for his patient to attain his/her highest potential. He achieves this by utilizing biomechanical assessments to locate pain-generating areas as well as find tissue restrictions and movement errors that could predispose his patients to future injuries. His blend of manual therapy techniques, joint manipulation, functional exercises, and education in a comprehensive treatment approach get his clients and patients back in the game faster and stronger.
