Trevor Pettingill PT, MPT
Owner 
St. George 
Phone: 435.215.1866

Trevor Pettingill, MPT is the owner and founder of Stride Physical Therapy. He graduated from the University of Utah with a Master of Physical Therapy degree in May 2004, and began his career working in small, physical therapist-owned, outpatient clinics in Washington state. Trevor has worked with many athletes of all levels, and is particularly skilled in treating back and neck pain as well as overuse and running injuries. Trevor’s treatment approach is based on the understanding that there is no better person capable of healing an injury than one’s own self. “Sometimes, the individual just needs a little guidance to put them in that right healing environment. Sometimes they need a bit more. That’s where the physical therapist can be of help. Our job is to help you learn what your body needs to heal itself.”

Trevor is a husband and father of five children. He is a life-long runner and competed in Track and Cross Country at the collegiate level. In 2003, Trevor won the Saint George Marathon. He also competed in the Marathon Olympic Team Trials in 2004. In addition to running, he enjoys sports, music, golfing, camping, and spending time with family.

Physical Therapist 
St. George
Phone: 435.215.1866

Frank is a lifelong athlete and fitness enthusiast. His love and passion for sports led him to compete as a collegiate baseball player for Oregon Institute of Technology and California State University San Marcos.

While playing college baseball and recovering from different sports-related injuries, he developed an interest in studying recovery, health, and fitness.  This led him to earn a Bachelor’s Degree in Kinesiology from CSUSM in May 2015.  Frank quickly recognized that a career as a Physical Therapist would allow him to help others recover from injury, physical limitations and become physically independent. With this goal of becoming a Physical Therapist, he earned a Doctorate of Physical Therapy degree from Touro University in Henderson, Nevada.

Frank’s treatment philosophy emphasizes an individual approach, focusing on prioritizing the patient’s goals in the treatment plan. Frank is a certified EXOS performance specialist (XPS) with specific training in orthopedic, vestibular, balance, manual therapy, and sports physical therapy.

Outside of work, Frank enjoys coaching baseball, playing baseball, basketball, slow-pitch softball, disc golf, golf, pickleball, and many other activities. Most of all he loves spending his time with his family. He and his wife have three amazing children. They love being outdoors camping, hiking, exploring, swimming, and playing a wide variety of sports and other fun activities.
