Rob Herron

Therapist

I have worked for Orthopedics Plus since 2007. Since I was young, I have always been interested in the body and how it works and how to enhance its performance. I have had many injuries from sports over the years and wanted to educated myself in proper rehabilitation and exercise which led me to physical therapy and its opportunity to help other people.

This led me to Northshore Community College receiving my associates degree as a Physical Therapy Assistant. I was not satisfied with being in the background so this led me to get my Bachelors Degree in Exercise Science from Salem State University. I then went to Graduate School at Nova Southeastern University and received my Masters Degree in Physical Therapy. After practicing for two years, I completed a two year residency program in Orthopaedic Manual Therapy. Since 2008, I have been enjoyed being a Clinical Instructor and teaching assistant for Boston University. I enjoy being mentoring the students and learning from them. You are never too old to learn, and being in that atmosphere forces me to stay on top of the latest research and hone my skills. I have been able to take that mentoring attitude to my work and assist our young staff physical therapists. I also have been working at Spectrum Fitness Consulting as a personal trainer as of 2008. I really enjoy taking patients from the rehab side to the fitness side and using both skills to promote wellness.

I have 2 sons which both play sports; it has been a joy and nerve racking watching them play! I enjoy exercising and helping both my sons improve their health for sports along with teaching them the importance of fitness. If you are going to talk the talk, you must walk the walk!

Orthopaedics Plus has given me the opportunity to utilize my manual physical therapy skills to help promote health and wellness and fitness to a vast number of people. Over the past years, I have had the privilege to work with and learn from highly skilled and knowledgeable therapists to help the quality of life for the patients I work with daily.
