Crystal Cassell, DPT

She returned to Georgia State University to earn her Doctorate of Physical Therapy in 2015. Since earning her DPT, Crystal has worked with the general population in outpatient settings.

Although she works with patients with all types of orthopedic ailments, she particularly likes working with those who have neck pain, low back pain, and lower extremity injuries. While she primarily provides care after injury, she also enjoys using her skills to create preventative plans to reduce the risk of future injuries.
Crystal grew up riding horses and helping with her mom's equine boarding facility. She is an avid animal lover and takes her dogs anywhere she can. Being full of wanderlust, she and her husband enjoy traveling, dogs in tow, as much as possible. They are looking forward to fully embracing the west coast and seeing all the beauty it has to offer.
