BOSTON - April 26, 2022 - PRLog -- Andy Fehlner PT, DPT of Peak Physical Therapy & Sports Performance was recently invited to present at a MGH Education Series on "Opportunities through Adaptive Sports" as part the Pediatric Stroke and Brain Injury Education.

Fehlner talked about the barriers and the facilitators to adaptive sports for individuals with mobility impairments. He has completed research on what keeps kids with mobility impairments from participating in sports and how to encourage them to participate. He also discussed the recommended dose of daily activity that benefits individuals with mobility impairments and how to advocate for having them participate in a combination of integrative and adaptive sports.

Fehlner earned his Bachelor of Science degree from Boston University and his Master's of Teaching from Tufts University. He holds a Doctorate of Physical Therapy from Boston University, where he completed clinical rotations in both outpatient ortho and acute inpatient rehab. His involvement playing and coaching various sports and martial arts, in addition to his personal experiences recovering from multiple injuries and surgeries, helped fuel his interest in this dynamic field. Fehner's clinical interests include musculoskeletal and neurorehabilitation. In his spare time, he enjoys sports, hiking/camping, reading, playing guitar, biking, skiing, swimming, and traveling.

"Education is imperative for patients and families in making decisions for a healthy lifestyle," said Eric Edelman, PT, Founder of Peak Physical & Sports Performance. "Along with his research on the importance of sports and mobility for children with mobility impairments Andy is an active advocate. He brings great value to the families he works with."
