This week, we’re welcoming Jason Silvernail to the Clinical Podcast! Jason is a physical therapist with over 20 years of experience, most of which has been spent in the U.S. Army. Currently, he’s the Chief of Physical Therapy at Walter Reed Army Medical Center. He, Mark, and John discuss how he ended up there, where they think the PT industry is heading, and what they see as some of our profession’s biggest concerns.
Dr. Silvernail joined the Army ROTC after high school and while he was attending Scranton University, he dislocated his kneecap during training. The physical therapy treatment he received after that injury ignited a love for the profession, which eventually led him to pursue his DPT from Scranton in 2006 and a fellowship with Baylor University in 2010. He has been stationed abroad multiple times, including deployments to Egypt and Afghanistan. He is dedicated to serving his fellow soldiers and their families.
