Dr. Rodriques, from Canadian, Texas, spent three years in the Army before graduating from Angelo State University with a Master's degree in Physical Therapy. He later received his Doctor of Physical Therapy degree from Temple University and earned certification as a Geriatric Specialist through the American Physical Therapy Board of Specialists. Ryley is the area's only board-certified geriatric specialist and acts as clinic director. In 2018, Dr. Rodriques was recognized as a “Best in Patient Care” Provider by the American Health Council and in 2020 was voted Amarillo’s Best Physical Therapist.

In addition to his geriatric specialty, Ryley is proficient in the treatment of adolescent post-concussion syndrome and dysautonomia. He is frequently seen working under the ropes of the Redcord Suspension system, a treatment approach he’s been using since 2014.

Ryley is married to Brooke and together they have two daughters, Rylan (7) and Reagan (5). Away from the clinic, he enjoys tea parties, watching princess movies, rooting for his beloved Texas A&M Aggies, hunting/shooting, grilling out on his back patio, and beekeeping.

Sarah Rubio

Sarah Rubio, PT, DPT

Dr. Rubio, born and raised in Canyon, TX, received her Bachelor of Health Sciences degree at West Texas A&M University and later went on to complete her Doctor of Physical Therapy at South College University in Knoxville, TN. From an early age, Sarah has been actively involved in sports, nutrition, and fitness training; so physical therapy was a natural fit when it came time to choose a profession. Since graduating, her clinical interests have focused on chronic pain, pelvic floor dysfunction, and strength and conditioning.

Traleia Hodnett, PTA

Originally from Dalhart, Texas Traleia grew up in a ranching family where she developed a strong love for horses and rodeo. She worked on the family ranch, and as a cosmetologist, while raising her three children, Stormy, Laramie, and Tex; but eventually chose to pursue a career in physical therapy after serving in a variety of non-clinical roles at Dalhart Physical Therapy, becoming a Physical Therapist Assistant in 2011.

She and husband, Bill, are competitive team ropers and actively involved in rodeo. Her son, Stormy is a professional bull rider.

Traleia loves to travel and see new places - by car or plane, near or far. Aside from her yearly pilgrimage to Las Vegas for the National Finals Rodeo, she’s made multiple trips to Africa and the Netherlands.

When not working or horseback (which is seldom), Traleia enjoys playing golf and spending time with her grandkids. She does not like to cook!

Meredith Wood

Meredith Wood, PTA

Originally from Panhandle, Texas, Meredith grew up with three sports-crazed brothers. In high school, she played basketball and ran track, qualifying for the state meet three of four years. Her basketball skills won her a scholarship to Frank Phillips College in Borger. After completing her basics there, Meredith transferred to Amarillo College to begin the Physical Therapist Assistant program.

Since graduating from AC in 1995, Meredith has worked in a variety of physical therapy settings, most recently providing care to homebound patients in the Pampa, Texas area. But she's spent plenty of time in outpatient clinics, as well, obtaining extensive training in Myofascial Release techniques.

She has two college-age sons, Logan and Layton, both enrolled at West Texas A&M. When not working, she and fiancé, Mark, enjoy boating, snow-skiing, and spending time with their dogs, Harley, Boomer, and Zig.

Born and raised in Borger, Texas, Viviana received her Bachelor of Health Sciences degree from Texas Tech University with the intention of continuing on to physical therapy school. She joined the iPOW team as a Rehabilitation Technician in 2018, but quickly added Laser Technician and Social Media Director to her growing list of iPOW titles! Aside from her clinical duties, Viv oversees creation of the iPOW Monthly Newsletter and contributes heavily to clinic’s marketing efforts.

While taking some time off from school to work in a variety of rehabilitation settings, Viviana discovered she had interests and gifts that lay outside of physical therapy.

Robyn Arnhold, Business Office Manager

Robyn joined our sister company, Catalyst Rehabilitation, in 2009 after a successful stint in hotel management and was instrumental in the development of what is now iPOW Physical Therapy & Wellness. Officially, she functions as business office manager, but that title fails to convey the significance of her contribution, which often includes duties far exceeding her job description. Robyn is a native Amarilloan and married to Todd. In their spare time, she and Todd enjoy home improvement projects, Golden State Warriors basketball, and spending time with their sons and granddaughters.

Dolores Brooke

Dolores joined our team in 2018 as a patient intake coordinator, but soon began to specialize in the intricacies of insurance verification and authorization.

She and husband, Guy, enjoy cooking, hanging out on their patio, and spending time with family.

Derek Neill

Derek Neill, PT

Derek grew up in Canyon, Texas and received his degree in physical therapy from Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center in Lubbock. He has held management roles in a variety of treatment settings and operated several rehabilitation/wellness businesses, opening iPOW Physical Therapy & Wellness in 2015.

Derek has many interests and the rate at which he discards one pursuit in favor of something new and shinier keeps his wife and kids in a constant state of disbelief and embarrassment. He’s a life-long living room guitar player, avid skier, Red Raider football fan, and mediocre shade-tree mechanic.

He and wife, Charleine, have four children; Ashley, Bella, Jake, and Avery.
