State Road native Brandon McCann, a graduate of Winston-Salem State University’s physical therapy program, starts his physical therapy career this week. McCann received his Doctorate in Physical Therapy from Winston-Salem State University on Dec. 16, 2016, and recently passed the National Physical Therapy Exam in January to become a practicing physical therapist in North Carolina.
“It’s an accumulation of three years of very hard work, and I am very excited to finally call myself a physical therapist,” McCann said. “It is very surreal.”
McCann is a 1999 graduate of Surry Central High School and a 2004 graduate of Appalachian State University, where he earned a Bachelor of Science in business administration. He also received a Master of Business Administration degree from Gardner-Webb University in 2012. McCann is also an Eagle Scout and former staff member of Raven Knob Scout Reservation near Mount Airy.
McCann said, “I am so thankful for all of my family and friends in Surry County who have cheered for me. You can’t believe how excited I am to finally be moving into the next phase of my life.”
McCann lives in Greenville, where he practices in an outpatient orthopedic setting at Pivot Physical Therapy. He plans to become a board certified orthopedic clinical specialists and wants to seek further education in dry needling and sports medicine.
