SOL Physical Therapy + Performance Training Values

Our Company

SOL Physical Therapy + Performance Training is far from your average wellness organization. We strive to be different – we have a different approach to fostering healthy movement, provide a different brand of service, and we do it all to create a different you. Being different doesn’t come easily, and it definitely doesn’t happen on a billboard or in a marketing campaign. It happens through the shared dedication each and every SOL staff member has to our mission, our vision, and our philosophy of service.

Below are the tenets that make SOL who we are, and are the foundation of how we serve.

Our Mission

At the core of every service offered lies a very simple mission: to help active individuals reach their performance goals. Since 1997, this powerful mission statement has led to thousands of individuals returning to their desired level of function, staying injury free after rehab and during performance training, and far surpassing their current levels of fitness and athleticism.

Our Vision

Through the delivery of precise, targeted, and effective rehabilitation and fitness services, SOL Physical Therapy + Performance Training wants to enable a lifetime of fitness, optimal wellness, and unencumbered mobility for the communities of Oakland, Alameda, Berkeley, Walnut Creek, Orinda, Lafayette, San Francisco and the Greater Bay Area. Despite a landscape where insurance reimbursement for rehab is plummeting, and amidst a fitness landscape riddled with fads and pseudoscience, SOL plans to continue to be the Bay Area’s choice for physical therapy and performance training by offering high quality service – without compromise.

Our Philosophy

As are most things great, our philosophy is quite simple. We believe that the most effective service lives at the intersection between diversity, science, experience, and passion. By possessing strengths in each of these areas, SOL Physical Therapy + Performance Training provides the most effective and comprehensive services to active persons in Oakland, Alameda, Berkeley, Emeryville, Walnut Creek, Orinda, Lafayette, San Francisco and the Greater Bay Area.


We believe that one approach is not enough, and we believe that interdisciplinary collaboration creates a service environment that surpasses anything conventional care can offer. SOL is built upon a community of physical therapists, athletic trainers, personal trainers, Pilates specialists, and massage therapists who are encouraged to collaborate. Through this professional collaboration across disciplines, SOL is able to offer patients and clients resources that are far more comprehensive and vast than any traditional provider.


Effective care is part art, but mostly science. Of the many benefits found in today’s healthcare environment, none surpass the power that has accompanied a scientific approach to evidence-based care. Founded in this approach, SOL Physical Therapy utilizes only the most up-to-date and evidence-based practices in the delivery of rehabilitation and sports performance care.


Experience is not a commodity. There are many providers of rehabilitative care and sports performance training, however few are as experienced and skilled as those found within SOL Physical Therapy. All providers of physical therapy services at SOL Physical Therapy possess an advanced degree from premiere physical therapy programs, and the professional experience that makes them a cut above most other therapists in the field.


Our passion is our most valuable characteristic. Passion cannot be learned and it cannot be taught – you either have it or you don’t. At SOL Physical Therapy, not only do we have it, but we love it and we share it with our clients. We are passionate about what we do for you because we are just like you. We are active persons who love to move, providing services to active persons who need help to return to movement, or need help to move better. Our passion for the services we provide is simply obvious, as it’s the largest part of who we are.
