Sports Rehabilitation and Enhancement is also a specialty and passion for Ron. He has extensive experience working with high school, college, and professional sports athletes. When it comes to working on the Baltimore Orioles, Baltimore Blasts, and Tour players from the Champion PGA and LPGA, Professional European Basketball players, he understands what it takes to compete and excel at a professional level. College athletes from most of the local Maryland universities, such as Towson University, JHU, and Goucher, he has rehabilitated many athletes back to their former levels. He really enjoys working with high school elite club players such as M&D girl’s lacrosse or Raiders baseball club and he always takes the same approach. That approach is a full and thorough evaluation of not only the injured area but a whole body check for flexibility, strength, and coordination. This allows him to plan a full body individualized plan for each and every athlete and every patient.Ron’s Philosophy
“I treat every person the same, whether they play on the PGA tour or are an 85-year-old who plays chess. I treat them as I would want a member of my family treated. I oversee and make sure this not only occurs with me clinically but with every aspect of their experience with our company”.
