Chad Gallant, PTA, is a physical therapist assistant and United States Air Force veteran based in North Naples. Chad specializes in sports-specific therapy, acute care post-surgery due to chronic pain, balance training, instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization, and Muscle Energy Techniques. He is also Level 1 Certified in Essential Training in the Graston Technique. His past experience includes working in both inpatient and outpatient physical therapy centers and skilled nursing facilities, as well as providing in-home services.
While stationed in Europe with the Air Force, Chad took a fellow trooper to the hospital for eye surgery. While he waited, Chad explored the hospital and found a physical therapist applying a prothetic leg to a soldier. When they got the soldier to stand and take a few steps, the soldier started to cry, which was an eye opener for Chad and turning point in his career. He decided he wanted to help people get back to their daily lives after surgeries, injuries, and other musculoskeletal issues they may face.
