B. Peter Quinn, MS, PT, ATC

“A knee injury during my short-lived college football career provided my first of several personal physical therapy experiences. this exposure, combined with my interest in the sciences and my desire to make a difference by helping people, motivated me to pursue the athletic training and physical therapy professions. My goal for patients — whether they are participating in post-surgical rehabilitation or getting back to the game after a sports injury — is to guide the as quickly as possible to maximum recovery.”

A journey to professional excellence

“My professional education began as an injured athlete, experiencing the benefits of athletic training and physical therapy. I learned firsthand the difficulties people in pain and injury endure: the limitation in fucntion, the loss of independence, and the frustration and pain. After working as a college athletic trainer, I pursued a graduate degree in physical therapy with sports, spine and orthopedic rehabilitation as my specialty. A residency in orthopedic physical therapy was my next educational step.”
