Jeff Hebert

PhD, Physical Therapist



​Dr. Hebert is an Associate Professor in the Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at the University of Colorado (CU) School of Medicine. He brings 20 years of experience to the MIBH providing specialized physical therapy clinical care for persons living with neurological conditions with an emphasis on mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI) and multiple sclerosis (MS). In 2009, he received his Ph.D. in clinical science from the CU Anschutz Medical Campus. His clinical and research expertise includes examining, treating and investigating balance, mobility and related outcomes, and the effectiveness of exercise approaches for these problems for people with mTBI and MS. He has been the Principle Investigator on multiple research projects. The focus of much of his clinical and research efforts is on building novel conceptual frameworks of the complex interrelationships of balance and postconcussive symptoms for Veterans with mTBI and other related factors for people with MS. From these frameworks, he constructs innovative treatment approaches, such as multi-faceted vestibular rehabilitation programs, for people living with neurological conditions. His mTBI research interests include the investigation into the causes, management and treatment of a variety of clinical manifestations of people with mTBI, with a primary emphasis on balance, mobility, fatigue, dizziness, visual stability, exercise tolerance and brain health. Developing, investigating and implementing the most effective treatments to improve the quality of life for persons living with the persistent symptoms from mild head injuries will serve as a major pillar of his work at the MIBH.
