Ian Palmer is a physical therapist and bay area local. He studied at the University of California Santa Barbara to earn his Bachelor’s of Science degree in Biology, and later traveled to Gainesville to complete his Doctorate in Physical Therapy from the University of Florida.
Although he is generally healthy he had knee and ankle injuries resulting from competitive sports and completed his own physical therapy to get back to 100%. Ian has found that the human body has a great capacity to recover and through his own rehabilitation he found his passion in outpatient physical therapy. He enjoys working with patients with a variety of musculoskeletal and neurological conditions and understands how important it is for his patients to be able to physically participate in recreational and daily activities. Ian is methodical yet creative and finds ways to help patients move better so that they can return to the activities that they love.
When not in the clinic, Ian can be found hiking, playing ultimate frisbee, playing racquet sports, surfing, or rock climbing with friends.
