About Dr. Landel

Rob Landel’s two greatest professional joys are teaching and practicing physical therapy, including learning from his students and patients. He has taught physical therapists, occupational therapists and medical doctors worldwide. His personal joys are playing beach volleyball, skiing/snowboarding, body surfing, being outdoors, toys that fly and traveling with his wife. He has won gold, silver and bronze medals playing volleyball at the World Masters Games. His personal philosophy is, “The older I get, the older ‘old’ gets.” He has three children who have mastered the curiously contradictory skill of helping him push old age off into the future while simultaneously making him feel old.
