Dr. Edwin Ryan
Why I am a Physical/Occupational Therapist: I was drawn to the field of physical rehabilitation from my early years as a martial artist. My initial training in the rehabilitation sciences was as athletic trainer which I completed at University of South Florida followed by a Master’s of Science with an emphasis on Advanced Athletic Training and Exercise Physiology. I became a physical therapist because I wanted to provide a greater scope of rehabilitation services and be able to service a wider patient population.
Continuing Education Commitment: I have participated in a variety of continuing education courses with organizations such as North American Institute of Orthopeadic Manual Therapy (NAIOMT), International Academy of Orthopeadic Medicine-US (IAOM-US), the Gray Institute, hands on seminars and the University of St Augustine an thus utilizes an eclectic approach to treatment. I have completed an additional doctoral degree in manual Osteopathy through the National University of Medical Sciences and I am also completing a Doctor of Science in Orthopeadic Manual therapy through Andrews University. Additionally, I am an instructor for the Kinesio Taping Association and I currently serves on the research committee for the Kinesio Taping Association as well as on the Education committee for the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM).
Personal Interest: In my spare time I enjoy hiking, running and Latin dancing.
Educational Background: My original PT degree is a Doctor of Physical Therapy from Florida International University.
