Keiron Holmes, PT, DPT, SCS, has a B.S. in Exercise Physiology and Doctor of Physical Therapy from Temple University. He is also a board certified sports specialist (SCS), who has worked with elite athletes ranging from collegiate athletes to professional athletes including Olympians.
Keiron’s Vision: A Physical Therapist does more than rehabilitate an injury. We play an important role in restoring a patient’s quality of life. As a former patient who has had to rehabilitate an injury, I can empathize and fully understand how frustrating having an injury can be. Through fully educating a patient and providing a guideline for proper training, we not only play an important role in assisting a patient’s recovery but also decrease the likelihood of a future injury by emphasizing injury prevention.
