Trevor BrownClinic Director - PT, DPT

trevor.brown@athlonpt.com

Trevor has lived all over the country, including New Mexico, Alabama, Minnesota, New York and Arizona. It is in Arizona where he received his Bachelors of Science in Kinesiology from Arizona State University in 2010, and his Doctorate in Physical Therapy from Midwestern University in 2014.

Following graduation, he relocated to Tucson, his wife’s hometown, where he joined the Athlon team. Trevor believes that a physical therapy program should be individually tailored, and address all aspects of a patient’s life to help them reach their fullest potential.  He enjoys helping his patient’s return to their former self and activities, be it, sports, hiking, gardening, traveling, or just spending time with friends and family.

Trevor is an avid, enthusiastic sports fan and a former competitive swimmer, all of which spurred his interest in aquatic therapy, sports medicine, orthopedics and Rock Steady Boxing. In 2015, Trevor got certified by Rock Steady Boxing for Parkinson's (non-contact regimen) and later transitioned into the Knock Out Parkinson's program here at Athlon. He enjoys helping others become empowered to fight back against Parkinson's disease. Furthermore, Trevor is Titleist Performance Institute Certified (TPI). Using TPI’s physical assessment screen, Trevor is able to prescribe proper rehabilitation techniques to get players back in the game of golf. In addition to sports, Trevor enjoys spending his time off with his wife, new baby girl and two dogs as they lead a healthy and active lifestyle.
