Exploring Life and Business with Drew Courtney

Today we’d like to introduce you to Drew Courtney.

Hi Drew, can you start by introducing yourself? We’d love to learn more about how you got to where you are today?
I was attracted to the career of athletic training and physical therapy through my own athletic experience and having to rehab from multiple injuries. I got my bachelor’s degree from Colorado Mesa University in Athletic Training and later got my Doctorate in Physical Therapy from the University of Colorado. After working in Colorado for a few years, I decided to move to Southern California. I started my own business, Drew Courtney Physical Therapy, which is a sports performance-focused physical therapy clinic. It is located inside of a high-level performance gym called DBC Fitness San Diego.

Being located inside of DBC Fitness has been a great fit. The philosophy that the trainers have and the biomechanically backed training style align greatly with my own style. It is a great fit for all athletes and active individuals that want to get out of pain and improve their performance.

Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
Being a new business owner has had its struggles. One of the most difficult things for me has been informing the public about my business and how I can be an asset to people. I’ve been able to do workshops at local gyms to help their members with common complaints like knee pain, shoulder pain, or finger injuries for rock climbers. I’d love the opportunity to do more workshops in the future to help people and give back to the community.

Can you tell our readers more about what you do and what you think sets you apart from others?
I am the owner of Drew Courtney Physical Therapy, which is a performance-based physical therapy clinic. I am located inside of the high-level performance gym call DBC Fitness San Diego. I specialize in helping athletes and active individuals optimize their performance and feel healthy long-term. My goal is to help individuals identify the root cause of their problem or pain by addressing faulty movement patterns. After identifying the problem, I use specific exercises and hands-on techniques to improve mobility and strength in order to help them develop the ideal movement patterns that will ultimately improve their athletic performance. Although I treat many athletes of all skill levels, I also treat any individual that wants to care for the body the way athletes do.

Is there a quality that you most attribute to your success?
The characteristic that I feel is most important is the ability to listen and be present with my patients. All of my visits are one on one and 1-hour in length.. Every patient receives my full undivided attention and is given time to tell their story. I think it is very important that people have the ability to express themselves, especially when they are in pain or discomfort. I want to know all of my patient’s health and athletic goals so I can do my very best to help them achieve them!
