Doctor Rebecca Smith

Owner, Mother, Endurance Athlete

Rebecca, a Doctor of Physical Therapy, has a decade of experience in both private and hospital settings. As an athlete and a mother who has battled chronic pain for over a decade, she founded Core Values Physical Therapy and Wellness to prioritize patient needs over insurance constraints. Her practice offers one-on-one, 55-minute sessions that blend clinical reasoning, exercise, and manual therapy, tailored to individual goals and needs.

Raised in south Florida by a medical family, Rebecca's passion for sports and medicine started young. She played various sports, notably water polo, and was deeply influenced by discussions of medicine with her orthopedic surgeon father. Pursuing her dual interests, she graduated Cum Laude with a bachelor's in exercise physiology from the University of Florida in 2007, followed by a Doctor of Physical Therapy degree from Boston University in 2010, graduating with honors.

Rebecca’s experience spans sports medicine, orthopedics, chronic pain, and post-op care in various clinical settings. At Core Values, she leverages her background to provide a patient-centered experience, focusing on helping clients return to their active lifestyles.

Doctor Megan Ford

Physical Therapist, Crossfit Level 1 Trainer

Growing up in Dallas, Texas, before moving to Florida in the early 2000s with her family, Megan has always been an avid athlete. She engaged in gymnastics, cheerleading, dance, musical theater, and notably excelled in volleyball as a setter/hitter.

Megan's academic journey included studying Health Sciences at Lake Sumter State College and UCF, where she played volleyball, graduating in 2015. She earned her Doctor of Physical Therapy degree with honors from AdventHealth University in 2021.

Her clinical expertise encompasses inpatient rehabilitation for post-stroke, spinal cord injuries, amputees, and oncology patients, with a significant focus on outpatient orthopedics. This includes sports medicine, vestibular rehab, chronic pain management, and post-operative care.

Known in the Central Florida area for her achievements in competitive Crossfit and bodybuilding, Megan's passion for functional fitness, Olympic weightlifting, and general health & wellness aligns seamlessly with the ethos of Core Values Physical Therapy, where she continues to contribute her skills and expertise.
