Dr. Aaron Horschig

  • Physical Therapist
  • Strength and Conditioning Coach
  • Speaker and Writer
  • Author of The Squat Bible 

His goal is to not only provide the highest quality rehabilitation to athletes who have sustained an injury, but to also help our sports medicine society become proactive in how we approach the athlete – both from a rehabilitation and training perspective.

When we realized there was someone as passionate about squat form and technique as we were…well we had to track him down. Dr. Aaron Horschig was kind enough to join the PLT4M team to talk about his big three: improve technique, decrease pain and increase performance.
