Bobby Park

One of our most recent additions, bobby joined our group in 2017.

 While it may not be obvious from his relaxed, mild mannered nature, Bobby was quite the expert in combat sports. Before retiring due to injury, Bobby spent over 8 years training Tae Kwon Do and spent over 4 years training Maui Thai. At his peak, Bobby was fighting professionally in Thailand, earning a living doing so. These aggressive sporting endeavors led to many injuries, such as ACL rupture that required treatment.

It is this first hand experiences of suffering his own injuries that Bobby feels gives him an edge in treating patients.

While Bobby is able to manage all musculoskeletal injuries, Bobby excels at diagnosis and management of injuries related to combat sports, such as MMA and boxing, as he appreciates what it takes to train or compete in combat sports.
