We’re so excited to introduce you to our new physical therapist, Ally Pearson PT, DPT. Ally began treating patients on December 12, 2022 and is available for appointments Monday through Friday.
Ally is originally from Vermont. In 2009, she received her Bachelor of Arts in Biology at Wheaton College in Norton, MA. After college she worked in several physical therapy clinics which confirmed that she wanted to become a physical therapist. She later moved to Utah to attend the University of Utah where she earned her Doctor of Physical Therapy degree in 2015.
While new to Thrive Physical Therapy, Ally practiced in the Treasure Valley for seven years before joining us. Ally’s career started out in a hospital based outpatient orthopedic clinic that exposed her to a wide variety of patients, diagnoses and conditions. After several years there, she realized there that she had an approach to patient care that needed more freedom to expand. Next, she spent two years in a wellness-based private practice where she continued to hone her manual skills as well as contribute to business and program development and other administrative tasks.
Ally’s practice has evolved over the years as she recognizes that we are physical, emotional, and energetic beings and in order to thrive we need to support all aspects of ourselves. Clinically she specializes in fascia, normalizing movement, and re-establishing foundational strength in order to help patients live the life they want. As a natural teacher, Ally loves using education as a way to empower you to care for your body. You are the expert of your body and she loves to supplement that with education backed by evidence. In addition to that – Ally will enthusiastically be there to celebrate your gains, both big and small!
