Education and Training

2017

Fellowship in Applied Functional Science
The Gray Institute

While working with patients during his early years as a physical therapist, Cash realized that often he had only been taught how to treat his clients' symptoms, therefore only achieving short-term improvements. This lead him to seek out a more holistic way of treating people. Through his fellowship at the Gray institute, he learned how to assess the entire person from head to toe to find the root cause to injuries and treat them so that way the injury does not occur again.

2012-2014

Doctorate in Physical Therapy Elon University

During his time at Elon, Cash got a breadth of experience in orthopedic and hands-on physical therapy. He attended internships with some of the premier physical therapy companies in northern Virginia and San Diego. It was during these internships that he began honing his skills for treating chronic injuries, sports injuries, scoliosis and chronic headaches.

2007-2011

Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology

While at JMU, Cash majored in Kinesiology - the study of human movement. This provided him with a strong foundation in biomechanical principles and understanding of human anatomy and physiology.
