Hi there!


My name is Rod Henderson.  I’ve  been a board-certified physical therapist for nearly 15 years and strength coach for over 20 years.  If you want to know if you are in the right place, ask yourself these 3 questions.

Have you ever found yourself:

  • Frustrated that you haven’t gotten back to your active lifestyle after an injury or surgery?
  • Uncertain about the best exercises or training program you should use to get back to the activities you love?
  • Worried that you may not ever be able to do things the way you once could because of an injury or extended layoff?

If any of these questions apply to you, you are definitely in the right place!

Most formal rehabilitation programs improve your quality of life through improvements in pain, mobility, and strength. There is one BIG problem though.  Insurance companies place significant restrictions on the amount of care you receive.

As a result you will typically be discharged at a mere 60-80% of your full functional capacity!

That’s fine if your goal is basic household and community activity, but chances are that if you stumbled onto my website you want more out of life.

Because of my background, knowledge and experience in BOTH physical therapy and exercise science, I am ideally suited to help you:

  • Address any residual physical impairments left over from your traditional physical therapy program.
  • Transition to a general conditioning program designed to improve all aspects of movement and physical performance.
  • Design and implement a training program tailored to your needs for a specific event.  (Like a 10k or CrossFit competition)

Basically it’s my job to release you into the wild!

So What’s Next?

First, subscribe to HeadStrong (it’s nothing but free), and you’ll get PR guidance and the support you need to recover and restore your active lifestyle. No spam. No bullshit. Just reasonable advice from a very qualified professional.

Second, give me a shout at headstrongpt@gmail.com and let’s have a talk about getting you back where you belong.  We can set up a completely no-cost, no-obligation consult over the phone or via Google Hangout.

Finally, connect with me on social media!  It’s the quickest and easiest way to stay in touch!

I’m looking forward to helping you get off the sideline and back in the game.
