Becky Farley, PT, MS, PhD

Dr. Becky Farley received a PhD in neuroscience from the University of Arizona, a Master of Science in physical therapy from the University of North Carolina, and a Bachelor of Science in physical therapy from the University of Oklahoma. During her postdoc, she co-created the LSVT® BIG therapy program and completed the initial NIH research on its short-term benefits. She has now created a more comprehensive, adaptable and multisymptom framework that gets to the heart of the mobility and functionality problems in PWP. It begins with the building blocks of function called PWR!Moves®. The deterioration of these skills leads to functional decline and interferes with all physical activity. Dr. Farley has trained over 7000 physical and occupational therapists and exercise professionals to collaborate and work together on shared goals to improve and sustain functional mobility (therapists) and functional fitness. In 2010, she launched the PWR!Gym in Tucson, AZ – a model community facility for implementing cutting-edge rehabilitation, group exercise and wellness programming for LIFE.
