Rodney Hawkins, MPT, COMT. Rodney has been involved in sports, recreation and fitness his entire life and has always been fascinated with the complexity of the human anatomy and physical medicine. At Brigham Young University, he studied Sports Medicine/Athletic Training, giving him the opportunity to help college athletes as well as prevent and rehabilitate sports related injuries. Western University is where he began to learn about the importance of human touch and how manual therapy used in conjunction with therapeutic exercise can facilitate the healing of human tissue. This passion led to the Ola Grimsby Institute (OGI) where he had the opportunity to study under Ola Grimsby, PT, DMT, FFAAOMPT, for a year. There, Rodney earned his Certification of Orthopedic Manual Therapy (COMT). Rodney sees physical therapy as both an art and a science where he can incorporate scientific/evidence based treatments with an individualized approach specifically designed for each patient.  In his free time, he enjoys spending time with his family, surfing, kart racing, and riding dirt bikes.
