Brock Monger, DPT

Brock Monger, Physical TherapistCo-founder of Apex Physical Therapy, Brock Monger serves as the clinic’s lead physical therapist specializing in the care of neck and back pain, work and sports injuries, post-surgical rehabilitation, and fitness and wellness programs. A doctor of physical therapy, certified athletic trainer (ATC) and a certified strength and conditioning specialist (CSCS), Brock’s experience is steeped in education, athletics, volunteerism and community involvement.

Before graduating Cum Laude with a Doctorate in Physical Therapy (DPT) from Creighton University, Brock earned his bachelor’s degree in exercise and sports science from the University of Utah. In 2003, the journal Gait and Posture published a research article Brock co-authored while a student at Creighton, an article that described the impact body weight support has on one’s gait. During the first six years of Brock’s physical therapy career – before opening Apex Physical Therapy in 2007 – he provided outpatient services with an emphasis on manual therapy, orthopedics and sports medicine.

Throughout his career, Brock has embraced the opportunity to work with elite athletes from a variety of sports, providing them with athletic training, sports medicine and injury rehabilitation services. During the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City, he worked as a volunteer athletic trainer in the men’s and women’s hockey venue. He also volunteered for the 2002 Paralympics and has worked as a member of the sports medicine group that provides services for the Utah Grizzlies (professional hockey) and Utah Blitz (professional soccer) teams.

While operating Apex, Brock has combined this elite level of experience with his passion for community, all for the benefit of student-athletes in Jefferson County. As part of his Apex’s free community sports medicine program, he has treated hundreds of Madras and Culver high school athletes, offering them immediate medical attention and enabling them to return to play quickly and safely. For this purpose, Brock attends all Madras High home football games and many of the school’s winter sports.

On a personal level, Brock regularly competes in sprint triathlons and multi-sport events such as the Madras Aquatic Center MAC DASH, the Redmond RAT Race and the annual Pole Pedal Paddle Race in Bend. He enjoys Alpine skiing, mountain biking, hiking, canoeing/kayaking, fishing, coaching a local youth soccer team, and camping with his wife, Karin, and three daughters.
