After receiving his Bachelor’s degree, Jason attended the University of South Alabama where he received a Master’s in Physical Therapy. While at the University of South Alabama, he was able to experience physical therapy in multiple areas, including neuro-muscular deficits, pediatrics, cardio-pulmonary, as well as general orthopedics. He was also able enhance his skills through clinical rotations in a hospital, inpatient, and outpatient settings.
Jason began his practice working in an outpatient setting in Crowley, Louisiana, where his primary responsibility was providing both Athletic Training and Physical Therapy to adolescents from local middle and high schools. These treatments included evaluation of physical deficits, establishing a treatment plan, providing manual therapy to soft tissue deficits, strengthening muscle deficits, as well as returning them to their previous level of function.

Over the past 13 years, he has been providing physical therapy to patients of all ages in the Northeast Louisiana area, with the last 6 years focused on outpatient therapy for patients ages 10-98.
Jason has more than 16 years of experience working with patients of all ages. He continues to stay educated on the latest treatment techniques such as myofascial release and postural restoration, which he applies to his patients. He now wishes to focus his career more on pediatrics as he feels that children are the gateway to the future, and that every child should have an equal opportunity to do what they want in life.
