Meet our Physical Therapists

Dr. Jerry Yarborough, PT, DPT, CEO

I am Dr. Jerry Yarborough. I've been doing physical therapy for 28 years and opened my first outpatient physical therapy clinic 20 years ago in 2002 in Jonesboro, LA.
I opened my 2nd clinic over 7 years ago in 2015 in Ruston, LA where I live with my sweet wife Angela. I opened my 3rd clinic last November 2021 in El Dorado.

I specialize in Vestibular and Balance rehab because in 2008 I had a personal experience with severe balance issues stimulated from an illness. I was destined to the nursing home but decided to trust my God and work really hard. Within a year I had recovered 95%. This experience sparked my interest to buy into the National franchise FYZICAL 6 years ago in 2015 because they too specialized in balance and vestibular programs.

In addition, we are the area of back pain experts, treating thousands of patients each year.

Angela and I have 8 children together. I spent the first half of my life growing up in Fort Worth Tx and moved to Ruston in 1995. I love mission work, especially in Africa and we have a small residential farm where we have goats, chickens, rabbits, dogs, birds, fish, and a cat. I love the Lord, my family, and my communities. It's my passion to impact our region to help people overcome their impairments and to LOVE THEIR LIFE.
