John Galloway, PT
John graduated from the Physical Therapy program at the University of Central Arkansas in 2000. Having a love for athletics, and a grandfather and father that were coaches, he always thought he would follow in their footsteps. However, after dealing with a back injury in junior high school and participating in rehab himself, John found a way he could join his love for sports and science. “When my back started hurting in the 9th grade and the doctor told me there wasn’t anything he could do and I should stop playing sports, it felt like my life was over. But I was referred and started participating in a rehab program. It was the one thing that got me back to action. I felt like that experience gave me a new direction. I wanted to help somebody like that person had helped me.” Being an Arkansas native, John enjoys hunting and fishing, and of course, the Razorbacks.
Christa Brown, PT, DPT
Christa is a North Little Rock native, who earned a Bachelors of Science in Health and a Doctorate of Physical Therapy in 2011 from the University of Central Arkansas in Conway. “In high school, I knew my dream job was in the physical therapy field. I became inspired by the compassionate care, dedication, and knowledge of the physical therapist who cared for a very ill family member. Now, I have the opportunity to educate, interact, and rehabilitate patients so they can achieve their personal goals and improve quality of life.” Christa works with individuals who need therapy for musculoskeletal and post operative conditions, including sprains/strains of the neck, shoulder, back, and ankle, as well as rotator cuff repairs and total hip/knee replacements. In her leisure time, she enjoys hunting with her husband, spending time with family and friends, as well as watching football.
