Patrick Watson is the Clinical Director of SPEAR’s Midtown – East 56th Street location. Patrick received his Bachelor’s degree in Community Health from Hofstra University and his Doctorate in Physical Therapy from New York Medical College. Patrick focuses on the treatment of orthopedic and sports injuries.
While growing up in Yorktown, New York, Patrick played soccer, basketball and lacrosse. He played Division I Lacrosse throughout his Hofstra years.
Over his career, Patrick has personally experienced a wide range of injuries, which required him to go to physical therapy, each time returning to play lacrosse. These experiences lead Patrick to realize that PT was a profession that would allow him to have a positive effect on others. This valuable experience, coupled with the personal insight of the required hard work and partnership between the patient and physical therapist, is leading to his patients’ success and excellent results. The application of his physical therapy education to patient treatment demonstrates that successful physical therapy plans consist of a combination of manual therapy and therapeutic exercise to assist patients to return to optimal levels of function and reach their goals.
During his free time, Patrick continues to play club lacrosse and enjoys to golf and ski.
