Doctor of Physical Therapy
Meet Dr. Thomas, DPT
Rob Thomas was born and raised in Redmond, WA. He went to Oregon State University where he completed his BS in Exercise and Sports Science. From there he moved to Salt Lake City, UT to complete his doctoral degree in Physical Therapy at The University of Utah in 2013.
Since graduating Rob has practiced Physical Therapy in Washington, Oregon, Montana, and Idaho. He has gained experience in all avenues of Physical Therapy, but has found that his true passion lies in Orthopedic Outpatient work. Through his years of experience, he has found that to truly treat someone efficiently you must look at the whole person and make a personalized plan for each individual. He believes not only in working closely with each patient to make that plan, but to also make it an enjoyable experience.
Beyond his practical experience Rob has had further training in NAIOMT (North American Institute of Orthopedic and Manual Therapy), RockTape, Vestibular rehabilitation, Dry Needling, and a multitude of various orthopedic diagnostic and treatment courses.
When Rob is not busy in the clinic, he is usually spending time with his wife and young daughter. He and his family have a small hobby farm where he has enjoyed the challenges of learning that lifestyle. In his spare time Rob is usually doing something outside. He has gained a true passion for hunting since moving to Idaho. Though he also enjoys biking, fishing, camping, hiking, and competing in various races from triathlons to obstacle races.
