Charles (Charlie) Williams, DPT
Charlie Williams focuses on listening closely to patients to understand their concerns and creating a treatment plan that addresses their needs. Because he believes that educated patients are better able to participate in their own recovery, he takes the time to explain what is going on in people’s bodies and how different approaches—from specific exercises to manual therapy—can help. He also works with patients to analyze the situations and habits that may be leading to injury and impairment and discuss what changes to make for the future.
Charlie has a particular passion for working with runners and other endurance athletes. He enjoys staying up-to-date on the latest treatment options in order to offer more versatile care.
Charlie earned a bachelor of science in biology and physiology at the University of Washington in Seattle, Washington. He earned a doctor of physical therapy from Eastern Washington University in Spokane, Washington.
Away from medicine, Charlie enjoys spending time with his wife and extended family. He likes to hike, backpack, slalom water ski, play tabletop games, and read science fiction and fantasy books. Previously, Charlie was a professional pacesetter—or “rabbit” in running parlance—for Galen Rupp, an Olympic silver medalist and University of Oregon graduate.
