About Dr. Eric Rhoden

Dr. Rhoden was born and raised in San Diego, California, making Austin, Texas his home in 2016. Dr. Rhoden has always thrived on competition and learning new skills. After dabbling in many sports over the years, soccer became his primary focus. Just before playing soccer at the collegiate level, he sustained a knee injury, removing him from the sport and solidifying his desire to pursue a career in physical therapy. He graduated Magna Cum Laude with his bachelor's in Kinesiology from California State University, San Marcos and received his Doctorate of Physical Therapy from Loma Linda University.

Following his academic accomplishments, Dr. Rhoden has served in various institutions and corporations as an advisor for health-related products, policies, and research projects. He has over 10 years experience in wellness coaching, nutrition, and personal training. During the past 6 years, Dr. Rhoden has been a movement disorder specialist with a local neurology practice. During the height of the pandemic, he co-founded a remote COVID-19 testing company to support the community. In addition, Dr. Rhoden has also spent time providing continuing education courses throughout the US on comprehensive Parkinson's care and enjoys presenting to local groups throughout the Austin area.

Dr. Rhoden is married to his incredible wife Erin and together they have a 9-year-old son Mason who keeps them busy. While fitness has been a part of his professional life, it is also a part of his personal life as well. Dr. Rhoden currently participates in local running groups, Camp Gladiator, CrossFit, and any other competition he can get his hands on. His goal is to be the grandpa that can still run, climb, get on the floor, and defeat my grandkids in a push-up contest. When Dr. Rhoden is not competing, he enjoys creating healthy dishes in the kitchen, gardening, camping, and enjoying time with his family.
