He then completed a Post-Doctorate Orthopedic Residency within the Kaiser Permanente system where he learned to be an expert in finding the source of your pain, and the real reason why it’s happening. He sits for the Board of Orthopedic Specialists exam in March 2018.Kurt has has worked with elite athletes from around the NFL, MLB, MLS, NBA, EPL, Olympics, and many other leagues. This combined his passion for sports, as he grew up playing soccer, and passion for rehab at the highest level. Having also worked at an outpatient hospital setting, as well as, working with professional athletes, Kurt has seen the extreme sides of the spectrum, where he noticed that the fitness and health of the regular person has been neglected. He believes that everyone should be able to access the same level of care that pro-athletes have. All people have athletes within them, they just need the proper coach to get them there, and that is Kurt's goal here at Therapydia.When not in the clinic, Kurt spends his time with his wife, Lindsay, and their Golden Retriever, Bennett. They love any outdoor activity, building and refurbishing furniture, and traveling.
