In this position, Jason joins a growing team of dedicated professionals at Victory Sports Medicine in Skaneateles that provide physical therapy as a key component of their integrated healthcare model – which includes several innovative clinical services, wellness and athletic enhancement programs that are becoming known throughout the region.

Among his areas of focus at Victory Sports Medicine, Jason and his team will be supporting the Gait & Balance Program, targeted for patients over 55 or who are at risk of frequent falls. Gait and balance disorders are among the most common causes of falls in older adults and often lead to injury, disability, loss of independence, limited quality of life and even death.
The Victory team is passionate about injury prevention and believes that early identification of gait and balance disorders and appropriate intervention will significantly reduce your chance of falling and/or injury. This in turn will allow patients stay active and avoid potential future dysfunction and loss of independence.
