John A. Capple, PT, MBA
Licensed Physical Therapist
In 2005, and in collaboration with our surgeons, John Capple used his background and clinical skills to design The Center for Neuro and Spine’s extensive physical therapy program. Here he specializes in post-surgical rehabilitation protocols that are complementary to our patients’ individual needs and specific surgical procedure. Along with our team of highly trained therapy professionals, John believes one of his departments’ many strengths is in developing individualized patient plans to deter or delay surgical intervention by way of mechanical diagnosis and proven exercise regimens. Combining his advanced training in many spine methodologies, such as McKenzie, John mixes in modern spine care philosophies to ensure the most efficient yet effective, rehabilitation plans for our patients at CNS.
Born and raised in Youngstown, Ohio, John attended Youngstown State University on an academic scholarship where he graduated with honors and his degree in Physical Therapy in 2000. In pursuit of continuing his education John has completed advanced clinical internships in both Orthopedics and Neurologic Acute Care and is certified in completing Functional Capacity Evaluations. John leads our physical therapy team which specializes in post-operative neuro-surgical physical therapy, non-surgical spine management, industrial and work related injuries and in complex regional pain syndrome.
