Eldon was born and raised in Williston, in the northwest corner of North Dakota—or “God’s Country,” as he likes to say! Upon graduating from Williston High School in 1990, he headed off for college at the University of North Dakota, in Grand Forks. While there, he obtained his Bachelor of Science in Physical Therapy, as well as his Master of Physical Therapy, graduating Summa Cum Laude in 1995.
In his professional career, Eldon has acquired a significant amount of expertise and experience, through working at several different facilities throughout North Dakota, as well as Idaho. Being a prime example of how life oftentimes comes full-circle, he was involved with RehabAuthority with Galen and Kevin in 2001 and 2002, and now has come “back to the fold” in 2011.
Eldon has always had a special penchant and skill for spinal rehabilitation, with advanced training and experience in treating acute and chronic neck and back pathologies. He is a McKenzie-trained therapist and will be certified in Mechanical Diagnosis and Treatment of the spine through the McKenzie Institute by the end of 2011. He has extensive experience with MedX Lumbar and Cervical evaluation and treatment technologies, which he feels is a perfect complement to his McKenzie training and manual therapy skills. When he is not treating spines, Eldon is also a master clinician in general orthopedics, sports rehabilitation, and industrial medicine, working with individuals from all ages and stages of life. He is 100% committed to and truly loves helping people “feel better again!”
In 1996, Eldon was credentialed as a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist, through the National Strength and Conditioning Association. He is also a Credentialed Clinical Instructor, through the American Physical Therapy Association, and has served as a Center Coordinator for Clinical Education. He is certified in pre-employment testing and functional capacity evaluation, through the WorkSTEPS system, as well.
In what Eldon likes to call his “other life,” he is also a professional musician and singer-songwriter (www.eldonjohnson.net), and continues to pursue this passion, as well. He was a national finalist in the 2007 Colgate Country Showdown, and placed 2nd out of 50,000 contestants across the nation, performing at the world-famous Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, TN. He also works as the Contemporary Music Coordinator at his church. Eldon enjoys exercising and watching/playing sports of all kinds, with a special love for football. He is married to his beautiful soul mate, Amy, with whom he has two children, Isaac and Clara Jean, as well as one step-son, Jacob.
