Why physical therapy? Because Ken has seen it make a difference in people’s lives.
“I treated a patient who was in a horrific car accident. Her legs were covered in scars…and at the beginning she could not even put weight through her legs,” Ken said. “Eventually she walked again. I saw her (recently) and she gave me a big hug and thanked me. She still walked with a limp but was walking without any assistive device.”
In his spare time he enjoys being outdoors, basketball and attending sporting events.
Ken is the Clinical Director of the Tidewater Physical Therapy Hidenwood clinic in Newport News. Being among the leadership team of Tidewater is personal.
“I wanted to become a PT because I wanted to help people,” Ken said. “When I was in college I had to bring my mom to therapy at Tidewater. I just knew that’s what I wanted to do – a high paced job that requires problem solving in a social environment.”
Many of the physical therapists at Tidewater Physical Therapy Inc. hold Direct Access Certification through the Virginia Board of Physical Therapy.
Ken holds Direct Access Certification and is available to evaluate and treat patients without a prescription from a physician.
