He recently completed the Level II Senior Balance and Vestibular course with Brian Werner, Director of Balance Center Development, Training and Education at FYZICAL. Matthew has future aspirations of becoming a board-certified specialist in the area of orthopedics to further expand upon his accomplishments and clinical expertise in the field.
Matthew recently decided to pursue his dream of owning and operating an outpatient physical therapy clinic. Along with Kimberly Gallaher, he partnered with the FYZICAL franchise where he can continue to provide exceptional patient-centered care and grow as a dedicated professional. When Matthew is not delivering the best care possible to his patients, he enjoys spending time with his family, playing golf, and training in mixed martial arts.

Since completing her formal training, Kimberly has acquired a wide range of advanced skills and expertise that enable her to improve function and wellness for patients of all ages. Though her primary interest lies in orthopedics, Kimberly has extensive experience in treating various injuries and diagnoses that involve post-surgical, balance, sports, spine, and neurological disorders.
Throughout her career, Kimberly has remained dedicated to bringing best-in-class physical therapy care to Brevard County. She stays abreast of the latest techniques so that she may improve the quality of life for each person she is privileged to treat. In 2000, Kimberly earned her full Pilates certification from master teacher Romana Kryzanowska, one of Joseph Pilates original students, at the esteemed Pilates Studio of the Midwest.

Kim most recently completed the Level II Senior Balance and Vestibular course with Brian Werner, Director of Balance Center Development, Training and Education at FYZICAL.
Kimberly takes an eclectic approach to physical therapy, utilizing hands-on manual treatment, neuromuscular re-education, functional exercise, Pilates rehabilitation, and patient education, among other modalities. Such a multi-pronged strategy allows her to focus on enhancing wellness for the whole person, rather than simply the body part in need of care. By implementing this personalized approach, Kimberly is able to adeptly evaluate body alignment, muscle imbalances, and range of movement to comprehensively address issues that may be contributing to injury while facilitating the healing process.
Opening FYZICAL has been a dream come true for Kimberly, as it allows her to harness her energy, dance, athletic background, and education into one dynamic entity. She is passionate about helping others increase their functional abilities and live their lives in comfort. When she is not providing care for her patients, Kimberly enjoys spending quality time with her husband and two children. Her hobbies include running, yoga, Pilates, and traveling.
