Dr. Courtney Warren Mesa, AZ

Dr. Courtney Warren, PT, DPT, CSCS, CAFS

Dr. Warren of PR LAB isn’t just a physical therapist. He holds a variety of sports-related certifications, and currently is one of the PT’s for the US Swimming Team, making him an ideal professional for active athletes.

He has worked with members of the NBA and MLB as well as collegiate athletes in many sports, but he is happy to work with athletes of all ability levels. He also loves swimming, owns AZ Open Water Swim events, and competes with Swim Devil Masters.

 

He is also married to Dr. Ashley Warren PT, DPT who is a pediatric PT working with kids with special needs, along with their therapy dog- Baumer, who believes therapy is through giving dog kisses (but, she is not supposed to).  Both of which will drop into the office and change the decorations randomly… and may even have to put Dr. Warren in line.
