I have known Dr. Joseph Powell PT, CSCS, COMT, FAAOMPT for over 10 years. He is not only a great friend, mentor and family man, but Dr. powell is also one of the most elite in his field in the entire country. His educational background starts in 2001 when he completed his B.S. in Anatomy. Quickly followed by a Master of Science in Physical Therapy in 2002. Also in 2002, he began working in outpatient physical therapy while continuing his education. In 2005 he received a Strength and Conditioning Specialists certification and another certification in Manual Physical Therapy in 2007. That same year Dr. Powell founded Proactive Rehab, Physical Therapy & Wellness Center. In 2009, Dr. Powell completed his Doctorate of Science in Physical Therapy. 2014 has been a big year as he earned a certification in Orthopedic Manual Therapy involving joint manipulation and was recognized as a Fellow of the American Academy of Orthopedic Manual Physical Therapists. To put that into perspective, there are only 18 Fellows in all of Georgia.
