Derek is an awesome physical therapist, I've been working with him for about 2 months and my lower back SI joint issues have subsided quite a bit. His methods are perfect for me, letting me take my time and getting over the fear of injury. I haven't been to the chiropractor in over 2 months, which is a testament to the exercise program that he has laid out. He is very professional but easy to talk to. As a bonus I'm able to play golf more. I would highly recommend Derek to anyone who has suffered from SI joint or degenerate disk issues. Thanks Derek!!

Derek has been extremely helpful in assessing the cause of my pain and formulating a plan to eliminate it. He spends a lot of time listening, asking questions, and sharing information in an effort to fully understand my own unique circumstances. I also appreciate that he makes himself accessible between appointments in case I have any questions or concerns.

Great experience with Dr. Hagen. He really knows his stuff and helps you understand what is going on with your body. I love that his goal is to teach you how to do things for yourself so that you do not have to spend all your time at PT. He gives you the tools you need to be successful and improve on your own and is there for you if you need his assistance.

He spent a full hour plus of hard work loosening up all of the tension in my back/shoulders/glutes from aggressive training. He is easy to talk to, listens to what you have to say, offers corrective resolutions, and exhibits extensive knowledge about his discipline. Enough thinking about it. Just visit him, already!

I was referred to Derek by a friend after I suffered a severe leg injury that left me unable to walk. From day one, I felt incredibly confident in his ability to diagnose the proper PT for my specific injury. Derek thoroughly explains each exercise/movement we do and the benefits it will provide. In addition, the flexibility he offers with at-home visits has proven to be a game changer given my mobility limitations. Derek has been patient and positive with his treatment and has made me feel like my care and recovery are in the best hands. As a result, I’ve progressed quicker than expected. I would highly recommend the Hagen Movement Institute!

I went to Derek at Hagen Movement Institute to help me with some pretty rough lower back pain. It came from a combination of things, from my mostly desk job, to my running a high number of miles per week, to previous injuries. Derek was very knowledgeable and gave me multiple options, exercises and advice to aid in my back feeling better. After several sessions, I am definitely in less pain and I feel like I understand more about why I had it to begin with.

Dr. Hagen has been extremely helpful in resolving my multiple joint/muscle pain issues. He is very knowledgeable about the latest treatments, and very thorough in his diagnosis and recommended therapy. I have had only three sessions so far, and I have already seen a significant improvement. For the first time in several years, I am hopeful that I can finally have a pain-free life.
