Joe Sikkema, DPT, PT, MASM, Cert-DN

Hi, I’m Joe Sikkema. I grew up north of the border in the Toronto, Canada area where I completed my undergraduate work in Kinesiology. I then moved to the U.S. to complete a Master’s Degree in Sports Medicine/Exercise Physiology at California State University in Fresno. I then got accepted into the Doctor of Physical Therapy program at Loma Linda Medical University where I graduated with Honors in 2009.

I played D1 volleyball for York University and Brock University in Canada. I was then recruited to play for Fresno State’s team while obtaining my Master’s Degree. I have also worked as a personal trainer for 12 years and have been privileged to work with people of all ages and all athletic backgrounds. As a physical therapist, I have worked predominantly in the outpatient orthopedic setting with a variety of patients and a large variety of conditions.

My specialties include:

  • TMJ (temporomandibular joint) dysfunction for head/neck and jaw pain
  • Neuromuscular Re-Setting Certified in the Strain/Counterstrain technique
  • Vestibular/balance dysfunction
  • Sports Medicine
  • Level 1 USA Weight Lifting Performance Coach
