Presenter: Derek Steveson, PT, DPT, FAFS, ASTYM Cert.

In December, 2001, Dr. Derek Steveson founded the Functional Performance Center as a way to fill the need to provide high level professional health services to our community.  He earned his Doctor of Physical Therapy degree from Creighton University in 1996.  He served as the Official Rehabilitation Consultant to the Arizona Diamondbacks from 2001-2007, has had the distinct privilege of being the colleague of Dr. Gary Gray, PT, and closely associated with the Gray Institute since 1997.

Dr. Derek has mentored nearly 100 doctoral students and lectured all over the world on the principles, strategies, and techniques of Applied Functional Science and Functional Biomechanics from the Gray Institute.  He has prescribed over 5,000 custom-molded biomechanical foot orthotics as well.  Dr. Derek is an ASTYM-certified provider and trained in 3DMAPS Movement Analysis Screening.

In 2007, Derek invented what was known as the Core Stick and now known as the Core Momentum Trainer (CMTtm), which is a unique device that allows for the muscles of the core to be activated and strengthened in all planes of motion.
