About Brett Burton, PT, DPT, SCS, ATC, CSCS

Brett Burton, PT, DPT, SCS, ATC, CSCS

With an extensive background in physical therapy, sports medicine and performance, Brett has had the opportunity to work with international leaders in the health and fitness space. Licensed in Physical Therapy, a Certified Athletic Trainer, a Board Certified Specialist in Sports Physical Therapy and a B Strong Blood Flow Restriction (BFR) Training Instructor, Brett is on a mission to revolutionize the health and fitness experience for people from all walks of life.

Brett attended the University of Nebraska, where he attained his Bachelor of Science in Education and Human Sciences with a major in Athletic Training. He then went on to achieve his Doctorate of Physical Therapy from the University of Nebraska Medical Center in Omaha.

Upon completing his Doctorate, Brett took up a position as a Physical Therapy Sports Resident at St. Luke’s Health System, where he was introduced to blood flow restriction (BFR) and grew into a staff therapist. He later transitioned to EXOS in Phoenix, Arizona and worked closely with athletes and corporate wellness clients, serving on an interdisciplinary team with an emphasis on mindset, nutrition, movement and recovery.

In 2018, he went on to study under Dr. Jim Stray-Gundersen, who had personally studied under Dr. Yoshiaki Sato, the Japanese inventor of BFR. Brett set out to launch One Harmonic Motion to teach health and fitness professionals how to integrate BFR into their offering. He was ready to launch his brand in 2018 when he was diagnosed with cancer.

His cancer experience had unlocked a deeper understanding of the human body. By using his formal education, he was able to start laying the foundations of what is now known as ongoing proactive performance.

About Salman Bhai, M.D., MSU Medical Advisor

Dr. Salman Bhai, Neurology, UT Southwestern

Dr. Salman Bhai is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Neurology and Neurotherapeutics at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center and Faculty Member at the Institute of Exercise and Environmental Medicine (IEEM) at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas. He earned his B.S. in mathematics at Duke University and his M.D. from Harvard Medical School, where he earned multiple research grants. He completed his internship, neurology residency, and neuromuscular fellowship at Harvard: internship at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and residency and fellowship in a joint program between Massachusetts General Hospital and Brigham and Women’s Hospital. He is grateful for the unique neuromuscular mentorship, training under several neuromuscular experts including Drs. Anthony Amato and Steven Greenberg (Brigham and Women’s Hospital) and Drs. William David, Amanda Guidon, and Reza Seyedsadjadi (Massachusetts General Hospital), amongst several others.

Dr. Bhai specializes in the evaluation, diagnosis, and treatment of neuromuscular disorders. He specifically focuses on patients with inflammatory and metabolic myopathies as well as those with immune checkpoint inhibitor complications.

His research focuses on understanding how muscles communicate with other organ systems, particularly when muscle is inflamed, like in myositis. The goal of his research is to better understand, diagnose, and treat patients with myositis. This will be achieved through exercise and muscle physiology studies of myositis patients by analyzing biospecimens for molecular perturbations. He also will offer clinical trials for myositis patients.

Dr. Bhai is dedicated to helping patients and their families understand and navigate difficult conditions by providing world-class clinical care.
