who we are
PHYSICAL THERAPY FOCUSED ON YOUR GOALS
Change Sports Physical Therapy Institute was birthed in 2010 out of a desire to see physical therapy care provided in the most optimal manner for the patients and the therapists. After working in severeal different outpatient clinics in Orange County, Matt was frustrated with the system set up in most clinics. Matt sought to establish a clinic with a systems in place to produce the optimal environment for the patient and therapist to thrive. (Read more about our treatment philosophy)
Change Sports Physical Therapy Institute had a unique beginning as the Preferred Physical Therapy Provider for the USA Men's and Women's National Volleyball Teams in 2010. The clinic was located inside the enormous American Sports Center in Anaheim, and shared a common space with USA Volleyball. Change Sports PT helped with the care of some of their athletes and worked closely with the athletic training staff. During that time, Change Sports PT performed pre-season screenings for the teams as well. (Read an article in the OC Register ellaborating on this screening) In 2011 Change Sports PT re-located to its current location in Huntington Beach. The clinic has seen growth as more and more people experience the difference Change can make.
