Enhancing and maintaining the human body as it was meant to move and feel. Through evidence-based practice, Kinnected Chain is committed to your improved health, mobility, and performance.

Throughout his continued education he was involved in undergraduate thesis work, exploring the science of human movement, and how to better maintain and enhance it. From here, while completing his graduate degree, he explored cognitive decline among the older adult population and the underlying effect of this on human health and movement.
