Martin is originally from Bowie, MD but has been living on the Eastern Shore since 1988. Martin received his Bachelors of Science in Marketing from Salisbury University in 1991. Upon graduating from college, Martin continued to pursue his goal of owning his own business by completing his prerequisite courses for physical therapy school in addition to taking further entrepreneurship classes to assist him with business planning.
While at Salisbury University, Martin met his wife, Kathleen, who also had aspirations to be a physical therapist. Martin attended University of Maryland at Baltimore and earned his Masters of Physical Therapy degree in 1997. After receiving his physical therapy degree, Martin returned back to the Ocean City area because he had always had a love for the beach and enjoyed the close knit community the area had to offer. Martin’s first job as a physical therapist was at Chesapeake Rehabilitation Hospital in 1997 in which he worked with inpatients who had diagnoses of strokes, brain injuries, Parkinson’s, total hip and knee replacements and amputees. From 1998-2000, Martin began his career in outpatient physical therapy at HealthSouth Sports Medicine in Salisbury, MD in which he treated a wide variety of outpatient orthopedic patients. In 2000, Martin opened the HealthSouth Outpatient Center in Berlin, MD and he was the manager of that facility for 3 years. After receiving extensive training in manual therapy techniques from Michigan State University’s Osteopathic Manual Medicine School, Martin and Kathleen decided to open up their own facility. Eastern Shore Physical Therapy was opened in 2003 so that superior one on one physical therapy could be offered to our local community. Presently, Martin is the only Certified Orthopedic Manual Therapist (COMT) in the area that has given him the superior skills to treat patients with a variety of back, neck and sacroiliac (SI) joint dysfunctions. In the spring of 2014, Martin completed his second level of extensive and comprehensive manual therapy training under the instruction of internationally renowned manual therapist Jim Meadows.
