Exercise is Medicine
We believe in an active approach to recovery.


Evaluate

The first step to recovery is having a comprehensive evaluation completed by your Physical Therapist. Using a variety of tests and measures, your Physical Therapist will establish your baseline and develop a plan of care. Treatment will begin on the first session as well as patient education and a home program to get you started.

Treat

Through continued education, we design our treatment plans based on the latest research. We truly believe “exercise is medicine” and take an active approach towards rehabilitation. We specialize in exercise prescription, but may also use manual therapy and modalities such as ice, heat, and electrical stimulation to help aid the healing process.

Prevent

When working with any injury, we aim to decrease risk of re-injury in the future by designing an individualized maintenance program just for you!

We also specialize in patient education and teaching safe body mechanics and injury prevention techniques.

Proud Affiliates Of SCU University

We perform Physical Therapy services at Santa Clara University working with their sports
medicine team to get student athletes back in action.

Go Broncos!

We assimilate an assessment of your
medical history, as well as examine
your physical abilities, to determine
an effective treatment plan. Our
exam may include testing and
measuring your strength, range of
motion, motor function,
coordination and balance, muscle
performance, posture, etc.

Your therapist’s knowledge of
physiology and movement helps
direct the treatment strategy
and is dictated by the goal of
the therapy, i.e. rehabilitation,
performance enhancement,
treatment of a condition,
prevention of injury, or
optimizing health.

We service people of all ages
who have medical issues and
other conditions that prevent
them from comfortable
movement to function in their
daily lives. Whether you are a
veteran athlete or a blue
collar worker we create plans
to fit your lifestyle.
