Jerrick regularly participates in progressive continuing education and has a special interest in cranial, TMJ and foot & ankle conditions. He is also a DonJoy trained custom knee brace fitter.
Jerrick enjoys an active lifestyle that includes spending time with his family, hiking, running and playing basketball and table tennis. He also enjoyed his time as a personal trainer and as a volunteer therapist with Skate Canada.
