John Hagan, PT, DPT
John Hagan graduated from Pennsylvania State University with a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology degree and then completed his graduate, doctoral-level training at Drexel University. After finishing his graduate work, John completed a 13-month Orthopedic Residency at Drexel University in the Summer of 2014, making him eligible to take his Orthopedic Clinical Specialty exam this coming March. During his Residency he gained advanced clinical training with all varieties of orthopedic and sports related injuries. As part of his Resident coursework, he completed a case study demonstrating the use of Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation to facilitate the recovery of lower back musculature on a patient with chronic low back pain. As a student, he completed a three month internship at Champion Sports Medicine in Alabama, which served many post-operative patients of world-renowned surgeon, Dr. James Andrews. Also during his internship, he had the opportunity to be involved with one particular study examining passive total arch of motion of the shoulder on the pitching staff of the Tampa Bay Rays. This study hopes to improve the ability to predict which players are at risk for injury based on their available shoulder motion. John plans on furthering his education and clinical skills by taking courses in both McKenzie, Paris and Maitland spine techniques, Graston technique for soft tissue mobilization, Kinesiotaping, Trigger Point Dry Needling, and completing a Manual Fellowship program. John resides in Philadelphia and is an avid fan of all the Philadelphia sports teams. In his spare time, John enjoys playing recreational soccer, hiking, and spending quality time with his friends and family.
