About Brad Simpson, DPT, OCS

Brad Simpson

Dr. Brad Simpson has worked in outpatient orthopaedics, as a physical therapist, for over
fifteen years. He is passionate about learning the ‘whole’ patient, spending the time
deciphering a person’s history and clinical picture to best treat each individual uniquely. His
love for teaching leads to patients becoming empowered, learning how to manage their bodies
and properly progress back to their hobbies and sports. Brad’s accomplishments in PT are a testament to his pursuit of excellence, something he is continuing to happily seek as he keeps
evolving with research and clinical experience.

Brad loves staying active with his family in the Pacific Northwest, going on hikes and camping,
golfing, paddle boarding, and spending quality time with his daughter and Maltese puppy.
“Each knee pain patient is treated differently, even if their pain is in the same location and
hurts the same as somebody else. The patient’s background, their injury history, job demands,
home-life, socioeconomic background, etc., all play into a patient’s ‘pain experience’. Building a
program unique to each person’s needs is rewarding. Even better is seeing them get back to the
hobbies they were limited in prior to coming to Reflex.”
