Oliver earned a Bachelor of Science degree in physical therapy at the University of Vermont, where he graduated Magna Cum Laude. After graduation, he went to work at a physical therapy clinic located at the renowned Green Mountain Valley School ski academy. Oliver worked with both the general population of Waitsfield and surrounding areas, as well as the student athletes at the academy. Working in this setting, Oliver treated a wide variety of injuries from chronic back pain to post surgical ACL rehabilitation. In December of 2005, Oliver’s interest in biomechanics and movement patterns led him to become one of the first twelve therapists in the country to be certified in Postural Restoration. He has presented to physicians, rehab specialists and ski coaches on this approach. Oliver has an extensive background in alpine skiing which includes: attending ski academies in Switzerland and Norway, racing for the British National Ski Team (representing them at the 1996 World Championships) and racing for the University of Vermont Ski Team. After his racing career, he coached at the Green Mountain Valley School and provided injury care and rehabilitation for the student athletes. He has treated skiers of all ages and abilities from novices to national team athletes. In April 2007, Oliver opened Inspire Physical Therapy. He lives in Essex with his wife Jessica and daughters Anna and Sarah. He enjoys skiing, biking and most other sports.
The Postural Restoration Institute (PRI) is built around 30 years of clinical practice associated with recurring successes of specific patient treatment programs. We established reproducible, outcome-based programs based on consistent evidence-based correlations, discovered with patient biomechanical, respiratory, and neurological functional patterns and limitations. My passion for the integrated systems of the body has resulted in an examination and intervention process of the asymmetrical human body called Postural Restoration.
