Dr. Putnam's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Putnam "A matriculant of Notre Dame Preparatory (2003 class president and Eagle Scout award) and University of Michigan-Ann Arbor (2007), John earned a Bachelor of General Studies (Pre-Physical Therapy) with community service cords. He then went on to pursue his dreams of becoming a healer and therapist in Pennsylvania at The University of Scranton, where he received his Doctorate of Physical Therapy (2011) at the top of his class. Some of John's professional experience include various outpatient settings, mentorships, chronic pain management, manual therapy, and completing over 2,000 functional dry needling procedures. John is also an advocate of continuing education and has accumulated over 100 hours in the past year (including certifications in Dry Needling and Orthopedic Excellence: the Spine). Aside from helping others feel their best, John also enjoys exploring the great outdoors, staying active with intramural sports, and supporting his Alma Mater by attending as many football games his time allows."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Putnam "I have a patient-first approach where I aim to spend about 30 minutes with each patient using manual therapy and patient education for self-management of their symptoms. My exercise programs are individualized and catered to each patient's abilities and limitations. I like to address every last pain and dysfunction that a patient is dealing with. There is no need to be in pain and surgery should only be considered after all other options have failed. I know that not every therapy is the same and I can assure you that once you've experienced my treatment approaches, I'll become your primary practitioner. The key to healing a patient is to listen to them. You give me the answers in your history and together we will travel to the goals you set for yourself. "
