Matt Baumann Headshot

A former active duty and current reserve occupational therapist (Major) for the United States Army, Matthew has a breadth of knowledge and experience working within the areas of human performance optimization, injury prevention/risk mitigation, and upper extremity neuro-musculoskeletal rehabilitation. In 2010, Matthew graduated Cum Laude from Bellarmine University with his Bachelor of Arts in Psychology, where he was also a member of the men’s soccer team from 2006-2010.

Matthew went on to earn a Master’s of Science in Occupational Therapy from Spalding University in 2014, and a post-professional Doctor of Science in Occupational Therapy from Baylor University in 2016. Matthew has published in four different peer-reviewed journals (including the Journal of Hand Therapy), and presented to advanced practicing providers at the national, state, and local level.

Matthew’s work was recognized for the “Best Research Paper of the Year” award at the American Society of Hand Therapists (ASHT) Annual Conference in 2018 and the U.S. Army Medical Specialist Corps Mary Lipscomb Hamrick Best Research Manuscript Award in 2019. Matthew has earned the Certified Hand Therapist (CHT) designation from the Hand Therapy Certification Commission (HTCC) in addition to the Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) and Tactical Strength and Conditioning Facilitator (TSAC-F) advanced certifications from the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA). Matthew’s interest in becoming an occupational therapist originated after seeing several family members maximize their independence, mitigate/prevent further injury, and return to duty after experiencing a devastating personal injury. Outside of the clinic, Matthew enjoys spending time with his wife (Sarah) and two children (Margot and Leo). He is an avid soccer fan who enjoys physical training, music concerts/festivals, and spending time outdoors.
