We would like to welcome, Dr. Alex Immermann, our new Performance Physical Therapist, to the Cohen Health & Performance family. He has passion for using his specialized background to meet the needs of clients wherever they fall upon the spectrum between rehab and performance development. His professional aspiration is to get less people rehabilitating and more people training.
Drawn to sports medicine after his own youth soccer experiences, he graduated with his BS in athletic training from Boston University and worked as a Certified Athletic Trainer (ATC) prior to PT school. He then graduated magna cum laude from The George Washington University with his Doctorate in Physical Therapy. While at GW he interned with EXOS (formerly known as Athlete’s Performance), getting the opportunity to learn from a world-renowned sports medicine/performance team treating many of the world’s most elite athletes. Prior to moving back to the DMV area, Alex was a Staff Physical Therapist with Elite Performance and Rehabilitation in Santa Barbara, CA. There he gained valuable experience working with general orthopedic clients as well as a wide variety of amateur and professional endurance, martial arts, volleyball, and tennis athletes.
Alex is a certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist through the National Strength and Conditioning Association. He is also a certified in Functional Range Conditioning (FRCms) a comprehensive system of joint mobility training meant to optimize human function through a focus on building true mobility, joint integrity, and body control/awareness.
We are very excited to have Alex join our team in helping you get back to the active lifestyle that you love!
