Dr. Gary Buckley
Dr. Buckley received both his Bachelor’s and Doctorate of Physical Therapy at the University of Central Arkansas. He had clinic rotations at multiple locations across Arkansas and Oklahoma. He performed rotations in hospital owned and privately-owned outpatient clinics, inpatient therapy at Baptist Hospital Little Rock, and inpatient rehab at Little Rock VA.
Dr. Buckley typically performs therapy evaluations for all musculoskeletal and neurological conditions and establishes appropriate treatment plans for patients. He is certified in dry needling and performs electro-dry needling for a variety of diagnoses including: chronic pain, tendonitis/tendinosis, migraines/headaches, and muscle guarding/spasms. He also performs spinal mobilizations for the neck and back to improve joint mobility and decrease pain. Other common procedures include: vestibular rehab for dizziness and impaired balance, sports rehab, pre-op and post-op rehab, pain management, IASTM/scraping techniques, and return-to-work activities. Although he specializes in musculoskeletal disorders, Dr. Buckley has a large skill-set and can see anyone that walks through the door. He works with athletes of all ages and skill-sets to improve their sport of choice and reduce risk of injuries.
Dr. Buckley enjoys working closely with people and helping them heal and get back to living their best life. He wants all his patients to feel that they were listened to and cared for while in therapy. His goal is to help people live their best lives free of pain without becoming reliant on pain meds or surgery. His favorite part of his job is seeing people come into therapy at some of their lowest and most vulnerable points and realizing that they can improve and return to all the things they have been missing out on. The shift in their attitude and spirit is encouraging to him.
When not helping patients, Dr. Buckley likes to spend time with his wife and two kids, play basketball, and go to the lake.
