Meet Gabe Johnson, PT, DPT


Gabe is a new resident to the metro Phoenix area but was born and raised just a few hours south, in Tucson, Arizona. He was very active as a child and loved being outside with his friends and family, however particularly thrived on the baseball field. Upon graduating from high school, he accepted a scholarship to play baseball in the majestic oil fields of West Texas at Odessa College. That is where Gabe solidified his desire to pursue a career in Physical Therapy after multiple season-ending injuries and months of rehabilitation.

Following his time in Odessa, Texas, Gabe moved back to Tucson to finish his degree in Nutritional Sciences and be closer to his high school sweetheart. He graduated from the University of Arizona in 2019, and moved to Flagstaff to pursue his degree in Physical Therapy at Northern Arizona University. Outside of work Gabe enjoys spending time with his wife, Ashlyn, and dog, Harley, going on adventures and being out in nature. Family means everything to Gabe, and he understands the importance of helping patients restore their independence so they can enjoy time with their loved ones as well.

Physical Therapy is much more to Gabe than rehabbing physical injuries. In his eyes, it is about connecting with people and building meaningful relationships to customize the perfect plan for them. Gabe is a ‘movement first’ PT that utilizes manual therapy, joint and soft tissue mobilization, and a gentle smile to empower his patients to reach their goals.

Gabe is excited to serve the Peoria, Sun City, and Vistancia areas. We would love to welcome you, your family and friends, and patients to Desert Edge Physical Therapy. Call today to see how Desert Edge Physical Therapy can help you move better so you can live better!
