A PASSION FOR SCIENCE AND FAITH: DR. SCOTT PASKIEWICZ’S ORIGIN STORY

into the activities you love most. Sports have been an incredible part of my life. I used to be a triathlete and did half an Ironman Triathlon. This April, my son and I will be doing a liveaboard, which is a 7-day scuba diving trip while living on a boat. It’s tough when you’re

therapist, and I loved the happy environment. They created a safe space where I felt welcome while physically recovering, and that was really appealing to me. After deliberation and prayer, I decided upon my career in physical therapy.

When it comes to the power of physical therapy, there’s always one case I think of. Right after I got my advanced certification in vertigo, one woman really proved to me how life- changing that information can be. For 20 years, she couldn’t lie down on her side because of her vertigo. We fixed that issue in one session. school, I excelled in biology and anatomy. My mother was a nurse, so I was always around a clinical environment one way or another. One of my first jobs was working at a beach and tennis club, and there were a lot of doctors there. They gave me a lot of advice about the medical field, which fueled my curiosity from school. I ended up drawn to the idea of physical therapy because it was so flexible. At the same time, though, I also wanted to be a pastor. I had planned to go on a missionary trip my junior year of college. but that changed when my girlfriend (now wife) became diagnosed with Crohn's disease.

because I don’t rely on “learning on the job” tactics like other clinics, and I require the same of all our therapists. Our clinic will never give you varying levels of quality therapy. We strive for excellence every single time you come in. That’s why I needed to break off from corporate hospitals and create my own clinic.
