In by Gene Shirokobrod

“This is not an impossible task.”

“The fear of ‘what if’ is much greater than the fear of failure”

DR. RYAN SMITH PT, DPT, ATC

Often people say you are the combination of the five closest people to you. In similar fashion I believe I am the cumulation of a wide range of different methods and individuals that I have studied and learned from.

These include:
Jeff Moore
Erson Religioso
Postural Restoration Institute
Julie Wiebe
Sandy Hilton
Sarah Haag

Beyond the individuals I have learned the most from is the methods that I have put the most time into studying. Strength and conditioning principles, understanding what pain truly is, my athletic training background and working with athletes on a daily basis, and participating in Crossfit have all had a major influence on how I treat and interact with patients/clients.

Founder and owner of uMove Physiotherapy and Performance.

Graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point with a degree in Athletic Training (2013).
