Physical Therapy is the art and science of applying physical agents, forces, exercise, and manual techniques to promote healing and increase function and well being. We work within the broader medical community and emphasize evidence based interventions supported by medical research. A Physical Therapist practitioner (PT) is licensed by the state in which he/she practices and in California is represented by the Physical Therapy Board of California.
Most patients are referred to us by their personal physician or specialist. We evaluate and treat patients to address functional limitations related to a medical diagnosis, and/or a physical or neurological condition. Our primary insight is to evaluate human movement and design a treatment plan to overcome or mitigate abnormal movement and dysfunction. We evaluate each patient to address gross and fine motor control, musculoskeletal integrity, postural dynamics, and strength and range of motion. A treatment plan is formulated with the patient according to his goals and treatment potential.
Physical Therapy has been proven to be effective in addressing a multitude of ailments including pain, weakness, postural dysfunction, gait and balance disturbance, and poor endurance.
