As an athlete growing up, he realized a need for aggressive and safe sports injury management due to the sports seasons being so short where an injury early in the season could keep an athlete out the entire season. This is where he discovered Athletic Training as a profession. And has concentrated his efforts on being able to return a student athlete as soon as is safely possible to their respective sport ever since.
Bill, after completing his schooling from the University of Montana and San Francisco State University joined The Sports Medicine Clinic in Seattle. After several years with The Sports Medicine Clinic, Bill opened Harbor Square Sports Medicine in Edmonds Washington. After a sale and purchase by HealthSouth, Bill opened Waterfront Sports and Physical Therapy. In 2016 Waterfront Sports and Physical Therapy was rebranded and moved to Shoreline WA as Motus Physical Therapy where Bill is currently managing the clinic.
Bill has also been the Head Athletic Trainer at Shorewood High School in Shoreline Washington providing injury evaluation, care and rehabilitation to the sports programs for over the past 25 years.
Bill has extensive experience working and rehabilitating athletic and recreational injuries and works closely with the sports medicine community to return patients to pre-injury condition. Bill employs manual therapy techniques and exercise programs through a hands-on approach. He has a strong background and rehabilitation experience with sports injuries of the foot, ankle, knee, hip, back, arm, shoulder and extensive concussion management.
He has focused his career through many hours of continuing education courses and adapting his treatment methods on finding the best methods to treat and manage athletic injuries to reach achieve the goal of a quick, safe return to sport and recreation.
