By choosing to receive physical therapy at Mountain Ridge Physical Therapy you are choosing to emphasize quality in your care. Physical Therapist Derek Clark is a proud graduate of the West Virginia University Doctor of Physical Therapy Program. He loves to surprise patients with positive results that they weren't expecting. Derek has been distance running and strength training for 21 years. In that time he has competed in and trained for numerous running and triathlon events across 16 states, learning many valuable lessons along the way about what leads to injuries, what prevents injuries and how best to recover from injury. He knows what it's like to have anything from fractures to a shoulder rotator cuff strain to an ankle tendinitis. When he's not exercising he enjoys spending time with his wife and son, gardening, brewing beer, and fixing anything that's broken.
