Dr. Eric Alexander is a board certified Orthopedic Clinical Specialist whose expertise includes working with a wide array of orthopedic, sports, and military related injuries. He has a particular interest in treating spine and neck disorders. This interest led him to pursue advanced training, and eventually become credentialed, in the method of McKenzie Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy (MDT).

During his time in the residency, he was involved in collecting data for a randomized control trial investigating the effects of spinal manipulation on patients with cervical radiculopathy.
