Joel T. Dall, M.D.

Dr. Dall was born and raised in Salt Lake City, graduating from Cottonwood High School. He attended the University of Utah for his undergraduate (BA in Community Health Education) and medical education. He ventured to the University of Wisconsin, Madison, for residency training in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation. Since 1994, he has been focusing on conservative musculoskeletal medicine. His repertoire includes acute and chronic musculoskeletal injuries and disorders of all types, in addition to neuromuscular rehabilitation (including electrodiagnosis). He sees education of his patients as a top priority to facilitate self-healing and management of chronic conditions. Dr. Dall also performs medical opinions and impairment ratings for insurance companies, attorneys and Workers Compensation.


Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, or Physiatry, is a branch of medicine specializing in diagnosing and treating a wide array of neurologic and musculoskeletal injuries and disorders. The aim of a physiatrist is to see the big picture – the whole person instead of the injury – and to help the person regain maximal function through nonsurgical means. Appropriate diagnosis is followed by careful education to help the patient understand the condition, and to facilitate participation in their own recovery. They utilize a number of tools and strategies including physical and occupational therapy, injections and medications to achieve these goals. Only when necessary will they refer patients to their surgical colleagues.

The physiatrists at the Salt Lake Orthopaedic Clinic treat many conditions, but most commonly see patients with neck and back pain, sports injuries and other nonsurgical orthopedic conditions. They perform electrodiagnostic studies (EMG) and provide expert opinions for insurance companies and attorneys. Their focus is on function and they would love to help you achieve your maximum potential.
