James D. Blakely, PT, MPT

Facility Director / Physical Therapist

“Exercise is medicine. We believe in an active and functional approach to recovery. Our goal is to help you return to your physical best with individualized treatment and healing.  We strive to exceed the client’s expectation by offering exceptional quality of care in a friendly and family-oriented environment.”

My Professional Philosophy:

EVALUATE:  The first step to recovery is having a comprehensive evaluation completed by your Physical Therapist. Using a variety of tests and measures, your Physical Therapist will establish your baseline and develop a plan of care. Treatment will begin on the first session as well as patient education and a home program to get you started.

TREAT: Through continued education, we design our treatment plans based on the latest research. We truly believe “exercise is medicine” and take an active approach towards rehabilitation. We specialize in exercise prescription, but may also use manual therapy and modalities such as ice, heat, and electrical stimulation to help aid the healing process.

PREVENTION: When working with an injury, we aim to decrease the risk of re-injury in the future by designing an individualized maintenance program just for you! We also specialize in patient education and teaching safe body mechanics and injury prevention techniques.

James joined the PHOENIX Rehabilitation team in 2019 and has been practicing physical therapy in a variety of settings for 18 years.   Among his specialties are the treatment of the foot and ankle, particularly runners and athletes of all ages, as well as,  occupational-related injuries thru advanced training in work conditioning/work hardening, functional capacity evaluations, post-offer employment screens, and workplace ergonomics.

James resides in Elkins Park with his wife and two very active boys, where he volunteers his time as a Youth Sports Coach.   Additionally, James is an admitted SPIN class addict (Peloton) and loves bike riding and golfing.
