John Zombro PT – CDRC 2011 Staff

I like to refer to John as Dr. “Z”.  This is indicative of his expertise as a John_in_office_2011.JPG.scaled1000Physical Therapist and an athlete.  As owner and manager of Zombro Physical Therapy Clinic located in Bozeman, Montana, John is doing a fabulous job of positively impacting the athlete community around Bozeman.  His clinic has gained a strong reputation for supporting a “return to full speed “for injuries and rehabilitation of athletes.  Having personally consulted with him regarding aches and pains John approaches issues methodologically, relying on his professional skill set and mixing his personal running experience.  I trust what he says and recommends.  I know many others do as well.  His clinic, located at 600 North Wallace is a setting that is abuzz with energy.  Well staffed, state of the art equipment, and a professionalism that promotes excellence.

John is a Continental Divide Running Clinic 2011 Staff who will present on Saturday July 23.  His presentation is titled; “KEEPING RUNNERS RUNNING – PREVENTING INJURY AND OPTIMIZING TRAINING”.  Wherever you are at with your running career this session will be instrumental in helping you reach the starting line in a full performance mode.  Look also for a panelist tag team opportunity to dialogue with both he and Dr. Jim Walker.  Email me at for a clinic brochure. Interested in attending a portion of the CDRC 2011 and want to register as a commuter? Contact me for details but please plan on attending!
