Dr. Uss is a physical therapist and Naturopathic Doctor. In his school days, he played football and was a champion wrestler. During his athletic career he became passionate about maximizing human performance. This led him to a career in physical therapy. He graduated Long Island University in May 2001 with a Master of Science in Physical Therapy. In addition to his work as a physical therapist, Dr. Uss chose to expand his skill set and pursue a degree in Naturopathic medicine. Dr. Uss obtained his doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine from the University of Bridgeport in May 2007. Combining these skills, he powers patient healing. Dr. Uss has a broad repertoire few if any other clinician can boast. Dr. Uss began working at Peak Wellness in 2007 and directs our naturopathy program. In addition to caring for outpatient orthopedic cases with more mainstream physical therapy techniques, Dr. Uss also combines traditional medical wisdom with integrative approaches in order to heal and optimize the functions of the body.
When things like poor diet, food allergies, environmental toxins, or stress negatively influence health and healing, body functions like digestion, sleep, and energy can all be affected. While Dr. Uss is an expert at physical medicine, manual body work, therapeutic exercise, acupuncture, and dry needling, he is also highly skilled in applied nutrition, herbal medicine, homeopathy, and vitamin and mineral therapy.
