Jeff Galloway - MPT, OTR/L, MTC, CHT
Jeff was born and raised in Ohio in a close-knit family of 6. As the third of four sports-oriented children he developed an early interest in sports medicine and physical therapy. Jeff went on to receive a Bachelor's degree in occupational therapy from Eastern Michigan University in 1987 and a Master's degree in physical therapy in 1993 making him one of the very few dual- licensed physical and occupational therapists in the state. Jeff has a passion for advancing his own physical therapy knowledge and educating other physical therapists. He firmly believes that education and practice are the keys to becoming a Master clinician. He has earned advanced credentials in the hand (certified hand therapist), spine (certified manual therapist), strengthening and conditioning (certified strengthening and conditioning specialist) and has developed and taught numerous continuing education courses that therapists around the nation attend to learn advanced therapy techniques. Jeff also is an adjunct instructor at the University of Indianapolis where he teaches (every other year) an advanced upper extremity mobilization course for therapists obtaining their Master's degrees. Jeff's desire to "Excel" led him to open Excel Physical Therapy in 2005. He takes extreme pride in his Excel family as well as his immediate family. In his spare time he can be found with his wife and two active young sons. They all enjoy running, swimming and sports.
