RockTape: Dr. Jaime Mor, our favorite ATC/DPT hybrid… How did you find us?
I used A LOT of kinesiology tape (for knees) in my clinic. RockTape was working very well compared to others I had used. After seeing success, I wanted to learn more. I took many courses with Mitch and Shanté [the Movement Maestro] – the rest is HISTORY.
RT: Now you’re officially a seasoned instructor – what is your favorite RockTape FMT course to teach?
FMT RockPods and FMT RockFloss. It is SO unlike anything else out there… There are so many ways these tools can be used differently than traditional practice. These courses force you to think outside the box and experiment. I LOVE IT.

RockTape: How did you get into athletic training?
I always wanted to work in athletics. I was an athlete growing up – playing ice hockey and lacrosse. I knew I couldn’t tolerate a profession that wouldn’t put me in that atmosphere. So I went to school at Quinnipiac University to pursue athletic training. We were a D1 university without football, so I worked on the sidelines with baseball, ice hockey, rugby, and field hockey players. I also had the awesome opportunity to travel to other major D1 universities – interning for both the University of Maryland and Yale‘s football teams.
AT school was hard, but worth every sleepless night and early morning bus ride.
RT: What/where do you practice now? How did you find your niche?
When I continued through school, I went the DPT route as well. I felt the need to continue to own the niche I started with my ATC degree. I now run a sports PT clinic in Cherry Hill, NJ (just outside of Philadelphia), specializing in elite athletics.
RT: When it comes to self-care & rehab, what concepts do you prefer to focus on?
FIND the problem. The root of the problem. And go from there.
Too often we’re taught to just look for what hurts and treat the symptoms. The only way to make long term/lasting change is to get to the cause of the issues and treat the REASON while ALSO treating the complaint.
RT: Name another AT or coach you admire. What is it about them?
I admire so many ATs. One to highlight is actually Mike Stella. He’s done an amazing job making a name for himself as an AT in a non-traditional setting. Being able to work independently as an AT in a world that continues to tell us we cannot succeed independently is something I always have and always will admire!
Also… Ethan [Kreiswirth]. He taught me to always remember to close the loop of learning. Not only do I use it when teaching, but when treating as well.
RT: So, speaking of ATs we admire… in the spirit of women’s history month – name a great female AT and why she rocks the job.
SUE FALSONE. SHE IS A TRAILBLAZER. SHE’S A LEGEND. Nuff said.
