Tanner Allen

Physical Therapist (DPT) and Strength Coach (CSCS)

Tanner Allen serves as a Physical Therapist (DPT) and Strength Coach (CSCS) alongside Eric Schoenberg at Diamond Physical Therapy. Tanner brings an innovative vision for the future of rehabilitation through sports performance training.  This is highlighted by injury prevention strategies and guidance following injury or surgery for highly motivated individuals both in the general setting and elite sports. His diverse background allows for individualized treatments along a continuum of care designed to decrease symptoms, improve function, and performance.

Tanner‘s interest includes understanding his patient’s unique circumstances, journey, and future goals. He uses multiple lenses to assess patients in combination with manual therapy both soft tissue and joint-specific in regards to limitations. Tanner utilizes optimal loading and synergy with high-performance training through regressions and progressions based on the individual’s needs.
He is also certified in Dry Needling and Blood Flow Restriction Training (BFR).

Tanner has spent most of his early life devoted to this field of study and surrounding himself with like-minded colleagues. Like many former athletes, he was constantly in the training room which forced him to learn about the human body and he found his lifelong passion. His love for sports in particular baseball brought him to CSP Florida where he most recently completed a strength & conditioning internship following grad school. Tanner received his Doctorate of Physical Therapy from the University of Saint Augustine, and Bachelors in Exercise Physiology from Valdosta State University.
