Growing up in South Florida, Dr. Jimenez is very passionate about helping others within his community achieve their rehabilitation goals. His main philosophy is to help individuals stay active even through injuries.

Born in Puerto Rico, Dr. Jimenez grew up playing competitive baseball and basketball. After suffering an ACL injury while in high school, he discovered his passion for physical therapy and the desire to help young athletes reduce their risk of injury and to return them back to playing their passion. He enjoys spending time outdoors with his family and continues to live an active lifestyle by participating in mountain biking, golfing, and playing basketball.
