William White

Assistant Professor
  • Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (SOM)

I always strive to help my patients optimize their functional status while minimizing the impact pain has on their life. My goal is to create individualized treatment plans that help my patients achieve their functional goals. Outside of work, I love spending time with my wife and daughter. I am an avid PC gamer and enjoy playing chess. I love baseball and am passionate about Houston-area sports teams, especially the Astros.

My clinical interests include diagnosis and non-surgical management of musculoskeletal issues including neck pain, back pain, joint issues, or nerve injuries. I perform electrodiagnostic testing (nerve studies) and injections to help diagnose the source of pain and assist with treatment.  My treatment philosophy also includes oversight of a therapeutic exercise and rehabilitation program. I am comfortable seeing patients of all ages and activity levels with a goal of reducing pain and improving physical function.
