Biography


Dr. Waldron graduated from Des Moines University in 2002. He has enjoyed serving the Edmonds community ever since 2002 with continuously working to provide the highest level of skilled physical therapy care. He became the owner of Axis Physical Therapy in 2006. Since then he has become orthopedic board certified and a certified orthopedic manual therapist. He was accepted into a physical therapy Fellowship in 2020 and is actively working on research and teaching as part of this Fellowship. He worked hard with legislators in WA state to pass a bill to allow spinal manipulation by physical therapists. He has an endorsement on his license to perform spinal manipulation as warranted in patient care. His favorite part of being a physical therapist, is figuring out difficult cases and giving people hope where they have not found relief with prior care. In his free time he enjoys playing hockey, soccer, and ballroom dancing. He also enjoys cooking and working on his Spanish and Portuguese language skills and spending time with his family.
