Our Staff

Todd Mitchell


Physical Therapist


I was born in Salt Lake City, Utah but grew up in Arizona. I graduated from the University of Arizona (Go Wildcats!) with a degree in Linguistics, then entered the Peace Corps and worked in Central America. On my return, I became involved with community organizing around housing/homelessness in San Francisco/ San Jose, CA. I married my wife, Terry, in 1986 and together we have raised 4 kids and now are helping with our grandkids here in Florida. I first worked in Physical Therapy as an aide, and then as a PTA, and in 1995 I graduated from a master’s program in PT at the University of the Pacific, Stockton, CA.

My core values are: Kindness, compassion, spirituality, beauty, clarity, integrity, gratitude, respect, openness and honesty, and harmony.

“There are no strangers here; only friends you haven’t yet met.” – WB Yeats

I am a physical therapist who primarily works with patients out of the comfort of their own home!

I enjoy working here at Direct Orthopedic because of the opportunity to work with clients one-on-one.
