Robert Hodges

Physical Therapist

Rob Hodges received his bachelor’s degree in biology and minored in chemistry at Lake Forest College. He received his Doctorate in Physical Therapy from Midwestern University in Glendale, Arizona.

Rob values a hands-on approach and emphasizing patient participation. He believes that a patient should be well educated with as much information about their injury and the rehabilitation process in order to get the most out of physical therapy.

Rob spent his first year out of physical therapy school under the guidance of his first mentor, in which he was able to skillfully hone his manual therapeutic touch. He is also certified in dry needling.

Rob believes that health and wellness are the foundation of a fulfilling life. Rob is a practicing vegan and his physical fitness interests include extreme calisthenics, distance running, cycling, capoeira, yoga, and primal human movement.

Being no stranger to injury himself after his collegiate football and rugby career, Rob fully understands your desire to get back in the game of life, and he is ready to get your body stronger than it has ever been.

I’ve had some bad luck with injuries. I had 12 holes in right knee, many doctors said I should stop playing basketball. David has been able to put me back together. I’m not worried if I get hurt because I know I can come see him and get back to 100%.

I would say working with David helps you to learn about your body, not only in sports but in life. How to make taking care of your body part of your daily routine. I feel a lot faster and stronger since coming here. My body feels more balanced.

I’ve been playing basketball overseas for three years and this last summer was the first time I came to see David consistently. After doing my therapy and all of the exercises David gave me on a regular basis, I had the best season percentage wise that I have ever had.

For the past 2-3 years I had been experiencing right leg pain, back pain, and a slew of other issues. A friend of mine referred me to React and I’m truly amazed by my progress. A few months later and I’m now 100% healed. If you have imbalances, flexibility issues, mobility issues, call React.

I am so indebted to React. For so long, having pain in my shoulder was so normal, I didn’t even think about it. The first time I woke up and walked around for hours before realizing I wasn’t in pain was amazing. I can’t thank them enough for their detailed, careful, and hard work to fix me up.

I came here fresh off a major hip operation and knee repair. My body was completely unbalanced. I think since my time here, we’ve made huge strides I didn’t think were possible. My stability and strength is better than it’s been in probably 10 years. I think it has everything to do with David and the techniques he has used. I’ve never seen anything like it before.
