Meet Your Team

Justin Keller, PT, MPT, OCS, CSCS, Cert. MDT

Physical Therapist

Justin Keller leads the physical therapy team at Spine Team Texas, which is no small feat for this practice as we explore nonsurgical and minimally invasive procedures as preferred treatment methods. Focusing on orthopedic spine rehabilitation, Keller has contributed to the development of post-operative protocols for spinal surgeries. He recently seized the opportunity to contribute to a book being written about artificial disc replacement as Spine Team Texas performed one of these ground-breaking surgeries in November 2005.

Keller regularly “exceeds expectations” related to Press Ganey patient-satisfaction surveys, and he was named one of the “25 Most Influential” therapists in the nation by Therapy Times in November 2006. He is a member of the North American Spine Society, has been named an Orthopaedic Certified Specialist by the American Physical Therapy Association and is a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist as deemed by the National Strength and Conditioning Association. Dedicated to contributing to the resources available to his fellow physical therapists, he is also a partner in Physical Therapy Performance Resource — an organization providing continuing education to physical therapists in several Southwestern states.

Likewise, Keller often makes professional presentations; most recently he presented at the Sports Medicine Symposium in April 2006, where he discussed, “Rehabilitation of Cervical Spine Injuries in the Athlete.” He completed his master’s degree in Physical Therapy from Northern Arizona University.
