“Rethink Your Rehab”

-The Movement Dr.
Physical Therapy & Remote Coaching

TeleHealth Rehab

Because of our dedication to evidence-based practices and attention to our clients and patients, we are able to provide our rehabilitation services remotely. We build independence in our patients. We don’t needlessly physically poke them with things to help them recover. 

Physical Therapy

At The Movement Dr. we provide a unique approach to physical therapy with a one-on-one private session. In our practice we follow a movement and evidence-based approach to treatement. If you are experiencing chronic pain or going through any kind of injury we can help.

Remote Coaching

We also provide individual customized programming to help athletes train through pain, recover from injuries, and achieve overall health and fitness goals. We have been remotely coaching athletes of all skill levels all over the world since The Movement Dr.’s inception.  

Personal Training

We specialize in developing personal training programs for chronic pain management and injury prevention, as well as getting athletes back-to-sport. We are passionate about health and fitness and would love to help you reach your goals through personal training.  

Physical Therapy To Retain Your Independence And Reduce Pain

The Movement Dr. is a cash-based physical therapy clinic, where no physician’s referral is required. We offer a unique perspective on physical therapy and believe in educating our patients about their conditions to provide a lasting solution to improve mindset, increase movement, and reduce pain.

You will not receive exercise instruction from across the clinic while a physical therapist is treating multiple patients at the same time. We will work one-on-one together to reach your rehabilitation goals. With the cash-based approach, you are unbound by your insurance company and you control your healing process.

Clients are served remotely around the globe and in-person with Dr. CJ DePalma at the physical therapy clinic location in Pensacola, FL, and with Dr. Joe Camoratto in Mount Holly, New Jersey.

“CJ is committed to each of his clients. He tailors every session to fit us. He is knowledgeable and always professional. We have been working together on my wellness journey for over 5 years. My goal is to be fit at whatever age I happen to be. Currently, I’m 52 and we are working on a better, more healthy me. I confidently recommend Dr. CJ DePalma.”

-Anita Webb

“Thank you CJ for helping me get rid of my back pain I have had for the last couple of years! He is very knowledgeable when it comes to rehab. I highly recommend him to anyone who is currently dealing with an injury or for anyone who is looking to improve their athletic performance!”

-Nick Unger

“CJ understands performance and rehab far beyond what your average rehab provider does. If you’re serious about being at your best, he’s the guy to see.”

-Zachary Long

“CJ is always helpful and very knowledgeable. He pushes you to achieve things you didn’t think you could.”

-Carla Gilmore

CJ is the Steve Irwin of PT. He loves and believes in what he does, it shows. He will give you one on one undivided attention until you reach your goals. Be ready to work, he is. But you’ll thank him later. I’d give him an extra star if they had one here. This guy cares??

-Rich Viggiano

“The most effective physical therapy I’ve ever had. In my experience, a family doctor will first tell you to stop being active and “rest” for several weeks before a follow-up appointment where the Dr may then schedule an x-ray or an orthopedic referral. Once you’ve bounced around to several doctor offices, you may be given a referral to a PT who’s simultaneously seeing other patients and who gives you set exercises based off of a pre-made worksheet that’s a cookie-cutter fix to whatever diagnosed problem you may have. The Movement Dr doesn’t seem to have a cookie-cutter worksheet approach, but spends adequate one-on-one time with you to determine the problem, and to best figure out the most efficient means of correcting the problem. I can say that, without a doubt, The Movement Dr provided the most productive and thorough physical therapy sessions this 38-year-old avid athlete as have ever received. I highly recommend The Movement Dr for anyone. He’s knowledgeable, engaged, thorough and I’d even say that he has a meticulous eye for movement. I’d give him 10 stars if Google didn’t limit me to only 5.”

-Joshua Owens

“I came to CJ with acute lower back pain. He did not waste any time in running me through a movement test to diagnose the issue. After explaining to me what was going on, he gave me a simple and thoughtfully designed plan to return to full health. He periodically checked in on me even after we stopped having appointments. As a former collegiate athlete, I can confidently say that his understanding of pain and injuries far surpasses any doctor/physical therapist that I have worked with in the past.”

-Justin Pagila

“CJ helped put my teen athlete on the path to game play absent of the usual knee pain and overuse injuries common in youth soccer.”

-Gregory Baker

“He is one of the most knowledgeable doctors you will find. Dr. DePalma will customize your therapy to get you back to 100%. Trust the process!”

-Harrison Whitehead

“Easy to work with, patient, and helpful! Highly recommend!”

-Patrick Waters

“I developed lower back pain after squatting too heavy too soon. Just a couple months after seeing The Movement Dr. and following the plan he laid out for me, my low back pain is gone and I’m squatting pain-free.”

-Christopher Weaver

“I had broken the 5th metacarpal of my left hand, which controls the rotation of my pinky finger. After surgery, CJ worked with me for several weeks. From barely moving it to being able to make a fist, CJ did an extraordinary job; you can’t even tell it was ever affected. Thanks, CJ!”

-Katie Reeves

“Over a year ago, I started having constant and immense shoulder/neck pain. I had an MRI done but it didn’t show anything conclusive and was told it was an impingement and to have physical therapy. Luckily, The Movement Dr. CJ DePalma was a resident Coach and Physical Therapist at my CrossFit gym. I had been working out for over six years and had never been in pain or injured before, so I was a little freaked out and scared. I think mostly, I was scared that I’d never be able to do what I loved (CrossFit) anymore without pain. But CJ stayed with me, encouraged me to stay positive, and helped me get through and over the pain. We modified movements when needed but I kept on moving. I am very grateful to him for his knowledge, advice, and help. I couldn’t have gotten through it without him. Thanks, Doc!”

-Bridget Granse

“I have gone to The Movement Dr. for three separate issues. One for a sprained wrist, one for a sprained ankle, and the most important one to me was lower back pain due to my job.

I suffered from lower back pain for 3 years before going to the Movement DR and I thought that was just going to be my life from now on. Waking up in pain, and having my legs go numb.

CJ worked with me to modify workouts and exercises to help me strengthen the affected areas. Thanks to the information and hands-on application I haven’t had any back pain since 2017.”


“Super knowledgeable and tailored for athletes and just an overall cool dude. Highly recommend ?”

-Dane Goodwin

“CJ was great to work with! I was having issues with patellar tendinitis in both my knees and he put a detailed plan in place to help me get better. I was able to continue training while rehabbing, which was very important to me. Not only did he help me with my knee issues; but he also coached me up on lifts, gymnastic movements, and workout strategies. If you’re an athlete having some issues, I highly recommend giving CJ a call!”

-Ryan Ware

“The BEST in the area! His approach on recovery is so real and attainable. It enables every client to reach their goals. Thank you, Dr CJ!!! Also, he is amazing with my kids!”

-Dawn Hamil
