We offer a unique approach to injury rehabilitation, developing a comprehensive treatment plan to address your medical needs and your personal goals.

Whether you are a weekend warrior, training for an elite sporting event or just trying to get through your day with less pain, Potrero PT can get you back on your feet and working towards your goals. Aquatic Therapy is also offered near our Ocean Beach facility.
 

Exercise Based Rehabilitation

In order to maximize your rehab, we utilize a combination of mat, body weight and resistive exercises as well as pilates equipment to develop core strength and body symmetry.

Aquatic Physical Therapy

Through our Ocean Beach Facility, we can incorporate aquatic-based physical therapy to gently improve your strength and range of motion avoiding the impact of full weight bearing exercises.  

Home Exercise Program

From day one, we teach you a customized home exercise program, empowering you to manage your injury and continue to improve your health after treatment is completed.

Manual Therapy

We use manual therapy techniques such as soft tissue mobilization, myofascial release, cupping, instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization (IASTM), stretching, taping and joint mobilization to decrease your pain and balance out asymmetries.  

Modalities

Depending on the stage of your injury, modalities such as ultrasound, iontophoresis, electric stimulation, traction, and hot and cold packs are used to alleviate symptoms and speed recovery.

Comprehensive Spine Care

In our comprehensive approach to resolving back pain, we teach you proper body mechanics, stabilization exercises and self-treatment techniques to supplement the soft tissue work, manual therapy, and modalities you receive in the clinic.  

Video Gait Analysis

We analyze your walking and/or running using a treadmill and video to identify inefficiencies, asymmetries and sources of pain.  

Consultations

Free fifteen minute consultations are available to discuss your individual needs and to determine if you can benefit from physical therapy.
