Hi, I am Dr. Scott Gray, Physical Therapist, and welcome to my site. I am a manual physical therapist specializing in sport and spine injuries. I currently reside in Southwest Florida helping patients in the cities of Naples, Fort Myers, Bonita Springs, and Cape Coral.
This is my personal blog. It is focused on manual physical therapy, movement, and clinical reasoning. My philosophy is if you are going to be a great clinician, you must develop your skill-set in these three areas.
I write on assessment and treatment strategies, analyzing and looking and human movement, case studies of former patients, clinical reasoning, and, on occasion, stuff that doesn't fit neatly into one of these categories. I also write about resources that I am exploring from time-to-time.
My goal is to create insightful, relevant content that you can put to work in your practice and professional life. If you are physical therapist or clinician looking to learn more about hands-on techniques, therapeutic interventions, and critical thinking skills behind the way you practice, this blog is for you.
I typically post three to four times a week. To make sure you don't miss any of my newest posts, you can subscribe with your e-mail off to the right of this page.
I started my journey in the performance industry as a strength and conditioning coach after my career as a All-Conference Division-One football career came to an end in 2010. As a strength coach, I had the great privilege of studying under many great coaches in addition to working with olympic, professional, collegiate, and high school athletes.
Although I loved strength and conditioning and still do, my passion really was in physical therapy. As an athlete, I had missed half of my collegiate career due to non-contact injuries. Since that time I have always wanted to know more about how injuries occurred. Flash forward to 2013, I enrolled in the University of St. Augustine and studied manual physical therapy of the spine and extremities. This approach of assessing and treating patients sets the stage for the majority of everything that I do in addition combining pieces other physios across the globe. My approach on rehabilitation really is an eclectic approach. I have taken bits and pieces from everyone and blended it into my own philosophy.
Having a three-dimensional perspective in rehab and movement is probably my biggest asset. I have been a patient, I have been a professional understanding performance and fitness, and now I am a manual sport and spine physical therapist that understands rehabilitation of sport and spine conditions.
