The SOL Story

A Little About Us!

SOL Physical Therapy + Performance Training in the greater Oakland area 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, our values and our philosophy of service.

SOL vision


Through effective delivery of targeted rehabilitation and wellness services, SOL Physical Therapy + Performance strives to enable a lifetime of fitness, optimal wellness, and unencumbered mobility for active persons of all ages and physical abilities.

Despite a landscape where insurance reimbursements are plummeting, and amidst a fitness landscape riddled with fads and pseudoscience,  SOL has become the Bay Area’s premier choice for physical therapy and performance training by offering high quality service – without compromise.

SOL Philosophy Of Service

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 individuals of all ages and physical abilities.


We believe that an interdisciplinary collaboration creates a service environment that surpasses anything conventional care can offer. Through professional collaboration across disciplines, SOL’s community of physical therapists, athletic trainers, movement specialists, and massage therapists are able to offer patients and clients resources that are far more comprehensive and vast than traditional providers.


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 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 + Performance, not only do we have it, we love and share it with our clients. We are passionate about what we do because we are just like you – we are active persons who love to move and we love providing services to active persons who need help returning to movement or who need help to move better.

The Road To Recovery + Beyond Starts Here!

  • I have had PT from many providers over the last 30 years, and SOL is by far the best I have ever found! The facilities are great, the staff are all patient, attentive, highly skilled, and the physical therapists have an understanding of the body and biomechanics that never ceases to amaze me!

  • I came to SOL with the goal of not only being able to run but to increase speed and endurance. Working out with my SOL trainer revealed many of the weaknesses that had developed as a result of [a prior car] accident and subsequent immobility… He tailored the workouts to accommodate my limitations, motivated me to reach workout goals, and gave constant encouragement! …His workouts for me were intentional and purposeful and improved my strength, speed, flexibility and endurance!

  • Being at SOL brought me from pain to strength. I’m dancing again! I felt worried because I was having heavy right knee pain with decreased mobility and ROM. Pain with dancing and walking. After SOL, my pain is gone. My mobility and strength is back. My glutes are stronger and quads/hip flexors are looser. I feel strong and confident with my strength, ROM and ability to do all my physical activities I enjoy. Thank you SOL!
