Education > Spine Fellowship

The role of physical therapists in the management of spine related pain is continually growing. This increasing responsibility requires leaders in physical therapy to have advanced training to effectively manage these patients through the continuum of care. We are looking for motivated physical therapists looking to become leaders and experts in advanced spine care.


Our Vision: To be the national leader in spine physical therapy.

Our Mission: To provide advanced education to physical therapists to produce autonomous providers who consistently achieve exemplary patient outcomes, manage complex cases, and serve as resources for fellow clinicians to enhance spine care.
