Meet Dr. Tiffani
Hello! I’m Dr. Tiffani Dowdell, the owner and lead physical therapist at InMotion Sports Performance and Rehabilitation.. I was born right here in Columbus, GA, but my parents moved us to Harris County, GA when I was 12, and that’s where I attended middle and high school. I have loved sports since I was a child. I come from a big sports family. One of my uncles being one of the first black QBs of GA Tech, and another uncle having played college baseball at Columbus State University and then minor league baseball. I remember our family traveling to may of those baseball games when I was a kid. My brother was also an amazing athlete who played all sports from the time he came out of my mother’s womb into college. So my family stayed busy in sports. Then there was me! I played basketball, and when I was 15, I discovered physical therapy because I injured my knee playing my sport. I had to go through almost one year of therapy, and it was then when I realized I wanted to be a PHYSICAL THERAPIST!
So I found a college that I fell in love with that had my major (physical therapy) and an amazing environment, Florida A & M University (FAMU). I loved it. Some of the best years of my life. FAMU is where I received my bachelor’s and doctorate of physical therapy degrees. After I graduated, I worked as a contract physical therapist in NC, Virginia, Maryland, and DC. Throughout my career I have worked with athletes in a variety of sports ranging from basketball, football, track and field, baseball, and soccer to name a few. I trained under Olympic and sports physical therapists. My interest and background is primarily in orthopedics, and sports injuries and rehabilitation. My true passion is working with high level athletes and active individuals.
At little more about my PT background. I am a certified Emergency Responder for Athletes, and a Certified Trigger Point Dry Needling Therapist. Yes, I do dry needle! Just make sure you get a physician’s referral for it because it’s needed for me to be able to dry needle you in the state of Georgia. Aside from that, I also work with high schools, one in particular being the 2021 State Championship Contending, Carver Tigers. Because I love what I do and I have a great passion for it, I am always seeking the most relevant and evidence based examination and treatment techniques to provide the best care to my clients. My primary goal is to help you reach all of your athletic and personal goals.
When I am not doing Physical therapy, I am usually with my family and friends. I have a very close-knit family who I love spending time with. We do regular bowling nights, and we eat out a lot. I have a passion for mentoring young women, helping them to reach their full potential in life. Other things that I love are reading, watching sports, cooking and baking, shopping, traveling, brunching with friends, and working out at my brother’s gym, LDJ fitness (located in Columbus, GA!).
I look forward to meeting and working with you soon.
InMotion Sports Performance and Rehabilitation is a cool and unique facility that offers physical therapy, manual therapy, massage therapy, sports training, ad athletic recovery. Our overall mission is to help you be your best self and reach your fitness, athletic, and personal goals. We aren’t like traditional physical therapy clinics since we see patients in a quiet, private and comfortable one-on-one setting. Most of our physical therapy clients come once week for 4-6 weeks max. Our athletic clients come in for sports recovery massages, injury prevention, and sports training. For those clients we usually start them off at once a week or every other week until they reach their goals. Once their goals are met, most continue coming to see us to help them stay on track and to keep them in the best shape possible with one of our massages or to update their training plan in the midst of competition. We also have clients that just come in for massages only, to keep their muscles loosened and stretched to prevent pain and to help them stay doing the things they love. We look forward to working with you too. Call us now at 762-822-4887 for more information!
