John Bottoms, PT, DPT, OCS

Physical Therapist


I enjoy treating patients with many different orthopedic conditions. I have a strong interest in manual therapy techniques in combination with exercise to enhance my patient's recovery. As a former hockey player and golfer, I became interested in sports medicine through my own personal injury experiences. I have a passion for treating all athletes, with a special interest in hockey. I have significant experience treating professional, collegiate, Junior and high school hockey players.
