Keith graduated from the Hunter College CUNY Graduate Center in New York City, where he earned his Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) degree. His clinical experience includes a variety of orthopedic conditions.
His treatment philosophy involves treating the root cause of the dysfunction and not just the symptoms in order to prevent re-occurrence or injury in the future. He uses a combination of manual therapy techniques, including soft tissue mobilization, dry needling, proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation (PNF), and joint mobilizations accompanied with education regarding efficient posture and body mechanics. He believes in providing a comprehensive independent exercise program to empower patients to manage their conditions more effectively.
Keith lives in Roanoke with his family and enjoys the many outdoor recreational opportunities the region offers.
