Caleb grew up in Arlington, Texas in a family that always valued health, physical activity, and staying active. He first became interested in physical therapy while working at a local running shoe store in his hometown. It was there that he first began helping people that were in pain get back to what they loved to do. It was there that Caleb knew that he wanted to continue to help people be the healthiest version of themselves, so he went to Oklahoma Baptist University where he began the path to become a physical therapist.
During his time at OBU, he was a four year college athlete and he competed at a national level in cross country as well as indoor and outdoor track. His time as an athlete shaped him as a therapist and allowed him to understand the physical, mental, and daily grind required by college athletic competition. He sustained a year long injury his senior year of college that kept him from competing for an entire year. It was this experience that has given him a passion to serve high school and college athletes by working to make them stronger, faster, and keep them in the game.
After OBU, Caleb went to physical therapy school at Washington University in St. Louis where he continued to grow in his understanding of the human body and the human movement system.
During his years in physical therapy school, Caleb participated actively in research that was presented at the annual physical therapy conference each year. He also learned to analyze human movement and how to correct the deficits that can contribute to injuries both in the acute and chronic stages of injury. This knowledge was applied daily as he worked as a strength coach and Head Coach for the Triathlon team at Washington University in St. Louis where he coached between 20-30 athletes to USA Triathlon nationals each year. Caleb graduated with his doctor of physical therapy degree in May of 2019.
When it comes to working with patients in the clinic, Caleb focuses on the patient’s individual goals and helps his patients improve their overall health during their course of treatment. He believes strongly in the power of a healthy lifestyle and regularly encourages his patients to do the little things that will help them heal from their specific injury as well as establish lifelong habits to improve their health. Caleb has a HUGE passion for working with adolescent and college athletes because he understands the level of commitment and time it takes to be successful. He enjoys working with local high schools, coaches, athletic trainers, and parents to develop a holistic team approach to ensure a great return to sport outcome. Caleb’s goal for all of his patients is to help them restore precise movement patterns and improve their overall health so that they are able to live their life to the fullest capacity that they can.
In his spare time, Caleb likes to spend time running, cycling, competing in triathlons, and spending time with his wife, Audrey, and dog, Willow. They are avid Kansas Jayhawk fans and enjoy cheering on KU basketball.

Jeremy is from Fowler in Southwest Kansas and enjoys spending time with his wife, family, and friends.

Jeremy recently participated in a medical mission trip to Haiti where he provided physical therapy to Haitians who are medically underserved. One of Jeremy’s main passions in physical therapy is treating patients who have experienced chronic pain using pain neuroscience education (PNE), which essentially teaches patients what pain is, why we have it, and how it works. PNE promotes understanding, healthy pain-related behavior, and improved function. Jeremy would like to continue to pursue an education in PNE and manual therapy to help his patients to the best of his ability.
