Dallas Overly, MPT
With a Bachelor Degree in Exercise Science/Physical Therapy Studies and a Master of Physical Therapy, Dallas Overly graduated from the University of Utah in 2001. Additional therapy experience was gained at the University Hospital and the Orthopedic Specialty Hospital in northern Utah. During his time in Gunnison with his wife, Janelle and four children, Dallas continues to be active in the community, coaching young children in soccer, baseball, football, and basketball as well as working with all school athletics including the Gunnison High School Drill Team with their "bumps and bruises."
He enjoys the rural setting where he can use his skills working with people in the outpatient clinic in Gunnison as well as at Gunnison Hospital, the Community Living Center in Centerfield and home health in the surrounding area. During his 14 years, Dallas has had the opportunity to work with people in most every situation, balance issues, age-related conditions, burns, wounds, orthopedic and neurology treatments. "I treat every patient as I would want my parents, spouse and children treated. Humor helps so people can find a little enjoyment as well as feel supported. I want patients to be aware of their progress from one phase to another – both the steps it takes as well as have a sound understanding of how much can be accomplished for them to reach their potential goal."
