Spencer joined the Lattimore team in June 2017 after moving to Rochester from Syracuse.  He graduated from SUNY Upstate Medical University in 2016 with his Doctorate in Physical Therapy.  He graduated Summa Cum Laud from Slippery Rock University with his Bachelors in Exercise Science.

Spencer is a lifelong athlete who has training in performance and sport specific enhancement and rehabilitation. He joins our team with experience in personal training and cardiac rehabilitation.

Spencer’s true passion lies in working with and treating patients suffering from chronic pain and conditions.  He is trained in the Autonomic Awareness Training (AAT) system and has spent his first year of practice focusing on and learning how the nervous system influences pain, recovery, and chronic mobility problems, and the ways to positively influence them.  He hopes to continue pursuing cutting edge ways to resolve chronic pain through his research interests into chronic neurological conditions and the science of pain interpretation.

All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third it is accepted as being self evident. Arthur Schopenhauer
