Meet Dr. Greg Ellis!
Why did you want to become involved in physical therapy?
I’ve always had a keen interest in sports injuries and rehabilitation, and knew I wanted to be involved in the healthcare field. Following my own injuries and rehabilitation I knew that PT provided the perfect opportunity for me to coach athletes and active individuals through the rehab process and empower them to reach their goals.
What is your background?
I grew up in Mobile, Alabama where I played a variety of sports and focus primarily on soccer. I earned a degree in Biological Sciences from the University of Alabama. I moved to Baltimore following graduation to pursue a DPT from University of Maryland, Baltimore. I have a special interest in orthopedics and sports rehabilitation and am a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist.
What is your specialty or niche when it comes to physical therapy?
I have experience with running and gait analysis in long distance runners and enjoy working with this population. I also enjoy integrating the whole body into the treatment of patients to facilitate a safe and efficient return to activity with the goal of exceeding prior performance.
What are you most looking forward to in joining the Rehab 2 Perform team?
I am most looking forward to the culture of growth that Rehab 2 Perform cultivates from the clinical side to patient treatment goals. I think this is a highly valuable aspect of culture that empowers both therapists and patients alike to grow and exceed their original goals.
What are your plans on trying to engage and connect with the Mt. Airy community?
I am looking forward to connecting with the athletic and active community in Mt. Airy via rehabilitation, community talks/seminars, and other community engagements. As rehabilitation and performance specialists we have a duty to educate and be involved in our communities to ensure that everyone receives proper access and is informed about health/wellness options that best suit them. This can be anything from early to late stage rehabilitation options, management of overuse injuries, pre-participation injury risk assessment, or training/recovery programs.
