Eric Akoopie, PT, DPT
Eric was born in Burbank, California and moved shortly thereafter to Las Vegas where he attended Spring Valley High School and played varsity for the basketball team. After quickly realizing his passion for fitness and sports, he attended UNLV and attained his Bachelors in Kinesiology and later earned his Doctorate of Physical Therapy in 2018. Since then Eric has been treating patients in all settings such as geriatric, chronic pain, sports athletes and post operative. He has developed special interests in manual therapy (dry needling) and preventative care. Eric has recently joined Jackson Physical therapy with intentions of providing quality care through his expertise in manual therapy, corrective exercise and movement dysfunctions. His motivation stems from his passion for movement and in providing optimal care to his patients. When he is not busy treating patients, you can find him on your local basketball court putting some shots up or spending quality time with his family.
