Dr. Mattox is the owner of In Alignment, PC and he is excited to partner with The Garden of Eden Health Center to provide Physical Therapy care.
He graduated with his Doctorate in Physical Therapy from Virginia Commonwealth University. His desire to become a Physical Therapist was developed from the love of exercise and fitness from playing multiple sports and having several hobbies.
As Dr. Mattox developed his own set of aches and pains, he became fixated on figuring out the best ways to keep himself and others pain-free so they could continue to do the activities they loved the most. He started to explore the prevention of musculoskeletal injuries and found his passion for postural rehabilitation and ergonomics.
He pursued further education at the American Posture Institute so he could not only improve his posture but also help his wife who is a dentist and many others who find themselves wanting to better their posture and work environments.
Dr. Mattox has worked with individuals of varying ages and levels of function. It is his goal to help his patients prevent and eliminate pain so they can be pain-free, healthy, and fit to do the things they love for as long as they desire. He looks forward to working with you and getting to know your story!
DID YOU KNOW
For every inch of forward head posture, the force on the spine increases by an additional 10-12 pounds!
A forward head posture causes a slow stretching of posterior neck ligaments which is a phenomenon known as ligament creep. This can cause rapid aging of the spine which can lead to neck pain and loss of sensation.
This does not have to be you, contact Dr. Mattox for a Posture Check.
