My name is Hayley Abell. I have just moved from Columbus, GA, where I was born and raised. I graduated from the University of Georgia with a B.S. in Exercise and Sports Science and Georgia Southern University with my Doctorate in Physical Therapy. I specialize in pelvic floor rehabilitation and orthopedics/ sports medicine. I am also dry needling certified.
New to the Huntsville area, I am excited to explore all the things. I enjoy CrossFit, cooking, and spending time outdoors. You'll find me watching Georgia football on Saturdays in the fall (Go Dawgs!). I geek out on Harry Potter and Game of Thrones, and I can't wait for hiking and camping with my dog, Remi.
My passion is women's health. I'm adamant that you deserve the best care, and I look forward to being with you every step of the way. I want to use what I know to help you perform at your best. Let's get to work!
Brent Congo, from Athens, AL, joined the Johnson & Hayes team in 2003 because of the excellent camaraderie among staff and the ample time he was able to spend with his patients. Growing up, he had an interest in science and anatomy. As he studied he became fascinated with how the human body heals or, in many cases, does not heal properly. Physical therapy afforded Brent a career where he can have a positive influence in the body’s healing process. He loves being able to provide education and hands-on treatment to patients so that they can understand how to take care of their own bodies properly to prevent injury and to promote good health.
Brent received his Bachelor’s degree in Biology from the University of Alabama – Birmingham, a Master’s degree in Physical Therapy from the University of Alabama – Birmingham, and a Manual Therapy certification from the University of St. Augustine. He is a certified specialist in orthopedic physical therapy through the ABPTS. Brent is also a certified dry needling practitioner. In his spare time, Brent enjoys boating, reading, coaching baseball and basketball and being active in his church. Professionally, he enjoys neck, shoulder and back rehabilitation.
