Joe Farrell PT, M App Sc., DPT, FFAAOMPT, FAPTA

Joe Farrell is our next guest to the blog in our series of interviews. He is recently retired as a private practice owner in California, but is still quite active within the profession. One of the things that makes Joe special (one of many indeed!) is that he was a founding member of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Manual Physical Therapists (AAOMPT).
