During the last year of his doctorate, Dr. Pickering had clinical rotations at the following locations: Spine Rehab clinic in Idaho Falls, Idaho, Vestibular and Balance center in Idaho Falls, ID, and Acute Neuro Rehab/ ICU Neuro Rehab at Intermountain Medical Center in Murray, Utah. Dr. Pickering also spends time helping to manage some of his family’s portable storage and towing businesses in Idaho Falls.  When Cordell is not in the clinic treating patients or assisting in family business matters, he loves spending time with his wife and three kids, soon to be four.  As a weekend warrior, Cordell likes to camp, fish, hike, play sports of every kind, and other outdoor recreational activities. He is excited to be a part of the Rexburg community and to help those around him.
