+ Do you accept my insurance?
We accept Medicare, Tricare/Triwest, VA, and Auto. We are out-of-network with all other plans. Please see out insurance page or call for more information.
+ Do I need a prescription?
No. In California you can see a physical therapist without a prescription.
+ Do I need exercise equipment?
Most treatment will take place in the home, office, or a gym. Oftentimes, minimal additional equipment is needed to achieve your goals. In the case that you do require specific equipment for your individual treatment, it will be provided by your physical therapist.
+ Where will we meet?
We can meet in your home, office, gym (if permissible), football field, track, the beach, or wherever you may need (given it is geographically feasible). We make our treatment location as convenient and easy to accommodate your specific needs.
+ What will the session include?
It depends on your specific needs. In general, your initial evaluation will include a comprehensive examination, objective measures (strength, range of motion, ect), manual treatment (joint mobilizations, myofascial decompression, trigger point release), individualized exercises, and a home program. It may also include an ergonomic evaluation, biomechanical examination, gait analysis, running analysis, performance enhancement assessment, injury prevention screen, and many other options.
We will also give you as much education as you are willing to hear! Our goal is to empower you with as much knowledge about your body as we can offer!
Please remember, there is no cookie cutter approach. Your assessment will be tailored to your exact needs!
+ How long will a session last?
An initial evaluation will last anywhere between 1-1.5 hours, depending on your needs. A follow up appointment will be 60 minutes of 1-on-1 care.
+ What is ACL return to sport training and how is it different than any other treatment I may receive?
Did you know that following ACL reconstruction, the greatest risk for re-injury is in the first year with rates 15 times higher than healthy individuals? Females demonstrate a four times greater risk than males within twenty-four months and twice the risk as males for injury to the contralateral limb. In contrast to the famous recovery stories we hear (think Adrian Peterson), most athletes do not return to the same level of competition. We want to change that by using a treatment approach that has been vigorously researched and shown to be effective. In short, we need to change the way you move and increase your strength to dynamically stabilize your knee. This begins pre-operatively! Pre-operative physical therapy is often overlooked by even seasoned physical therapists that may not be current with today’s research.
More specific information about how we will rehabilitate your ACL reconstruction and help return you to both everyday life and sports can be obtained by contacting us directly!

+ What should I wear?
Loose fitting, comfortable gym clothes and athletic shoes.
+ What form of payment do you accept?
Cash, Credit, Check, Debit, Venmo, and Paypal.
+ How many session will I need to get better?
It depends. Every case is individual and will get a personalized treatment approach. Estimates can be made over the phone; however, a full examination will provide a more accurate prognosis. In general, patients that receive individualized 1-on-1 care tend to recover much quicker than those that do not!
