Rick Tilquist, COPTA, CSCS
I graduated from Trinity Christian College with a Bachelors in Exercise Science and went to Fox College to specialize in the field of Physical Therapy. To further my expertise in outpatient physical therapy I completed a 2 year orthopedic certification through ACE and became a Certified Orthopedic Physical Therapist Assistant ( COPTA). I have an expertise in Orthopedics, Geriatrics, balance deficits, gait dysfunction, overhead athletes, weight loss, work related injuries, and Parkinsons patients.
I continued to expand my education and became certified in LSVT BIG to work with Parkinsons and balance deficit ( high fall risk) patients. My certification in Applied Functional Science (CAFS) through Dr. Gary Gray has better allowed me to work with all populations to not only return to prior level of function, but to go above and beyond to crush goals. Specializing in Rockblades has also allowed my patients to recover from injuries faster and have better outcomes.
My therapy techniques enhance my ability to provide the best quality of care, provide predictable long lasting outcomes. I take pride in providing the best possible care, dedicating my life to the profession, and promise an endless pursuit to help my patient to best achieve their goal. My CSCS and CPT certifications better allow me to pick individualized activities for my clients to reach their goals and provide the most up to date exercises in the field of healthcare.
