Kristjan (Stjani) Fridriksson, PT, OCS
Originally from Iceland, Stjani graduated from the University of South Alabama Physical Therapy Program in 1988. He spent much of his early career in California where he developed an interest in treating headaches, neck pain and temporomandibular dysfunction (TMD/TMJ). He completed a year-long course on TMD at UCSF and soon afterwards moved to Mobile to establish Grelot Physical Therapy.
Stjani has taken an array of continuing education courses and uses his vast manual therapy skills with most of his patients. He is an Orthopaedic Clinical Specialist (OCS) and is certified by the American Board of Physical Therapy Specialties. Board certified physical therapists often will help you get better faster with fewer treatment sessions needed.
He is the former vice president of the Mobile Area Physical Therapy Association. Stjani’s interests outside of work include playing the piano and guitar as well as spending time with his family.

He has additional training in golf injuries, their effects on performance, and how to correct these injuries to allow for a return to the course. James is also interested in how to alleviate pain caused by faulty movement patterns from our everyday postures and activities.
James enjoys spending time with his wife Kathryn, son Harrison, daughter Elisabeth, and dog Lola. On a clear night he can be found in his backyard looking up at the stars taking astrophotography photos.
Preston Warren, PT, DPT
Preston is a lifelong native of Mobile. He attended the University of South Alabama where he obtained his undergraduate and Doctor of Physical Therapy degrees. He has worked in multiple therapy settings treating clients of all ages.
He focuses a significant portion of his time to improving his knowledge about current medical trends and how they relate to rehabilitation.
