Daniel Frey, PT, DPT, CMP, CSCS, is a licensed physical therapist with a clinical doctoral degree in physical therapy, and a certified strength and conditioning specialist. His clinical interests include assessing, rehabilitating, and training inefficient and injury-prone runners in addition to aiding recovery of overuse injuries of the lower extremity and post-operative knees. He has been with OA since 2008 and manages our Portland location.

It’s not easy being sidelined by an injury. I know as I have been there before. With that said, time away from an activity makes you appreciate it even more and allows you time to improve your weaknesses and come back even stronger. It is my passion to help someone achieve their goals through rehab and even more rewarding when they return to their sport.”
