"I truly thrive on helping people feel and move better, and love to work with clients of all ages. In my spare time, I enjoy mountain biking, beaches, snow skiing (especially moguls), water sports, and watching my kids play sports. I have four delightful and energetic children with my adventurous husband, Mike. For the past 20 years, I have enjoyed working together at Back to Action PT with my physical therapist sister, Brenda."
“I love the field of physical therapy and my role in helping people return to their life pleasures and activities! My favorite thing is to educate people how to move their bodies after an injury and help them through a hands’on and specific exercise approach. I grew up in Colorado and love spending time with my husband and four teenagers doing activities like: water-skiing, snow skiing, and watching a lot of basketball.”

Bo graduated from University of Mississippi in 1996 with a physical therapy degree. He’s worked in many different clinics from Birmingham, Alabama to Aspen, Colorado to Bermuda and back to the Colorado Front Range. Through each of these settings, Bo was able to learn from his co-workers, and he developed a vision of ideal physical therapy care. This passion motivated him to start Paradigm Physical Therapy. Specifically, Bo believes that physical therapy should include hands on treatment, personal attention, functional exercises, and a fun atmosphere.
His areas of expertise include: Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation, Trigger point dry needling, IMS, IMT, Mulligan Mobilizations with Movement, Pilates, Kinesio Taping, active stretches, manual therapy, and trunk stabilization activities. He’s confident treating orthopedic injuries, back pain, triathlete injuries, and golf injuries. His hobbies include triathlons, biking, running, and golf. He is married to Raina, and their young family includes two beautiful daughters and two dogs.
What’s important according to Bo?
“One of the greatest aspects of my job is to listen. I want to know what matters to each patient. Paradigm should be a place where a patient can complain, celebrate, cry, or throw a tantrum because while you’re in our clinic it’s about you, not us.”
“I love helping people achieve their goals and strive to become better, and physical therapy is the perfect vehicle for me to accomplish that. I believe in incorporating manual therapy with effective therapeutic exercise, postural education, and
bio-mechanical corrections to help people move better and more efficiently. I am an avid outdoors-man and athlete and love learning more about my profession and bettering myself.”
"I enjoy matching physical therapy techniques to each patients' individual needs. I particularly like working on improving functional abilities that enable seniors to maintain an active lifestyle."
"I love to continually learn and improve my physical therapy skills. Recently, my focus of study and certification has been centered around Fascial Stretch Therapy, a unique assisted stretching technique. I find the interconnectedness of the body's tissues to be fascinating."
"I enjoy working with people with balance and
de-conditioning issues, as well as joint replacements. I am particularly excited to work with the residents at the Balfour Retirement Center, as I really enjoy the clients and the atmosphere there.When not at work, I enjoy yoga, cycling, and skiing."

"As Back To Action's Patient Care Coordinator I take care of front desk duties, patient scheduling, patient care, insurance verification and fielding of insurance questions, as well as spending time getting to know the physicians in our medical community to better help serve our patients' needs. Prior to coming to Back to Action, I was a Personal Injury Paralegal for 20 years which has helped me in some aspects of my current job, but I much prefer working in our clinic and interacting with our great patients.
When I am not at work, I love spending time with my husband and 3 children. We enjoy all types of outdoor activities that Colorado is famous for, watching my sons play lacrosse and baseball, and searching for the best dog parks and hiking spots for our 3 dogs."
Before coming to Back to Action, I attended Baylor University and graduated with a Bachelor’s in Science. My studies focused on chemistry and biology which lead me to become interested in the medical field. Being a physical therapist aide/ receptionist is an amazing experience and is a great way to start getting involved in healthcare.
"During my years in college, I studied two semesters abroad in Northern Ireland. The whole experience was amazing and gave me the desire to travel and ultimately move. After graduating from Colorado Mesa University, I moved to the Front Range where I decided to pursue my interest in Physical Therapy. I joined the Back to Action team in late April and have enjoyed my experience with them thus far. Outside of work, I love doing anything involved with sports and recreation."
