DR. JONATHAN SCOTT, CHIROPRACTIC PHYSICIAN, EXERCISE PHYSIOLOGIST
Jon was born and raised in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania where he developed an interest in the field of Chiropractic at an early age after suffering multiple injuries. While participating in numerous sports from football and rugby, to powerlifting and golf, he found a love for wanting to help others. Jon graduated from West Virginia University with a bachelor’s degree in Exercise Physiology and minor in Business administration. Following his time at West Virginia he journeyed south to attend Palmer College of Chiropractic. At Palmer, Jon developed an interest not only in chiropractic, but systematically finding the source of patients’ pain. Adding the movement based diagnostic approaches developed by the Selective Functional Movement Assessment (SFMA), Jon can identify the cause of musculoskeletal dysfunction to personalize treatment plans for each patient that walks through the door.
