Ethan is very passionate not only about working with athletes, but with the average person, who may be in pain, or unable to do what they were doing before, and making sure that no stone is left unturned in getting them back to their normal physical function and beyond.
In his free time, Ethan enjoys hanging out with friends and staying active, including going to the gym, running, biking on the beach, and playing recreational sports such as basketball and tennis.
