Ali Elder PT, DPT (she/her)

Board Certified Neurologic Clinical Specialist

Movement Disorders Specialist

Currently not seeing patients, but primary mentor in our Fellowship


Hey, I’m Ali and I am a movement nerd! My journey began over twenty years ago as a young ballerina in a dance studio, where I unknowingly honed an array of movement analyzing skills. Fast-forward to now and I get to use all of those skills to clearly identify where to intervene to help my patients live painfree lives-- thanks Mom and Dad for all those dance lessons!


Lucky for me I continued to love movement, which drove me to earn my Doctorate in Physical Therapy at USC and more recently, to complete a Movement Disorders Fellowship at [re+active]. Along the way I finished up a couple of other trainings including a Pilates, Zumba, and PWR! Certifications that helped further my skills and fulfilled my needs as a movement nerd.


When I am not at [re+active] or dreaming up fun new things to work on with my patients, I enjoy date nights with my husband, taking yoga classes, and spending time with my friends and family.
