Joel Thakkar, PT
Joel is an Oregon state-licensed Physical Therapist who graduated from the University of Queensland, in Brisbane, Australia as a Master of Physiotherapy.
Before becoming a Physio, Joel was an avid Rugby player and during his undergrad, worked as an Athletic Therapist with semi-professional Hockey players. This unique experience, as well as an inordinate love for sports lead him to develop a passion to better understand and treat concussions. To further this goal, he plans to seek accreditation through the CCMI (Complete Concussions Management Inc.) a world leader in concussion research and rehab, in addition to pursuing his COMT through the IAOM-Us.
In his "spare time" Joel enjoys all forms of exercise and outdoor activities, but most of all he loves spending time with his wife and son, whom they welcomed in May 2020. Joel is a life-long and diehard Oregon Ducks and Calgary Flames fan, and along with most everyone else in Eugene, a bandwagon LA Chargers fan. He loves to, and will, talk all things sports.
As a dual Canadian and American citizen, who roughed it with the Aussie's, Joel has experienced Physiotherapy in multiple countries and continents and brings a unique perspective to his patients. Joel strives to treat patients in a holistic, compassionate, and systematic way to help all people become the best versions of themselves.
