John joined Kitsap Physical Therapy and Sports Clinics in 1996. He has a unique perspective as both a patient and a provider of physical therapy, having been introduced to the profession through a personal injury. This led to a lifelong passion to provide a customized hands-on treatment program that suits the specific needs of each patient, helping to ease pain and enhance recovery time. John’s primary area of expertise centers around specific biomechanical treatment interventions combined with innovative functional exercise programs. He has attended many post graduate training courses and continues to pursue continuing education every year to further advance his treatment skills. John also specializes in hand therapy, vestibular disorders, and custom orthotic fitting.

John grew up in Newcastle, WA. He currently lives with his wife Ruth in Port Orchard, WA. John is an active member of his community and volunteers at a number of events. He also participates in international missionary trips each year to Central America and Cuba. In his free time, he enjoys hiking, biking, snow sports, cooking and trying new adventures, best in the company of family and friends.

Extracurricular Interests/Hobbies:
I am a Russian native and live in Port Orchard, WA. Since I enjoy rain, heat, and humidity, as well as frizzy hair, Washington is a perfect fit for me (though it would be more perfect if it were in Hawaii). I do not know much about American football (and why is it FOOTball? Nobody has been able to answer that one for me), though support any sport. Motion is lotion! I believe it is important to try new activities: I went snowboarding at the ripe age of 30 for the first time, and plan to learn paragliding, as well as car racing.
