I'm Shelby, and I am absolutely passionate about helping you move through life with ease and joy! Here are a few things I focus on in my private physical therapy practice:
Pain and Mobility Problems - Do you want to move better, get fit, have less pain? Get a thorough assessment of your current exercise routines plus any recreational and professional activities, and leave with custom home exercise recommendations and a follow up treatment plan.
Recovery and Healing - While different from Massage Therapy, Physical Therapy can also include manual work such as soft tissue mobilization, myofascial release, passive stretching, and silicone cupping to help your body recover from intense workouts and heal faster from injuries.
***Video Note: Grounded Physical Therapy is no longer located inside of Tribe Functional Fitness in Los Alamitos, CA. As of July 2021, GPT will be serving the beachside community of Carpinteria, CA***
Therapeutic Yoga - Even though yoga is everywhere, it can be intimidating to jump into a class, especially if you have injuries or aren't sure which poses will be healthy for your body. I offer private and small group yoga classes to help you feel comfortable and confident and provide customized modifications. Also great for birthdays, weddings, and special events!
Workplace Ergonomics - It shouldn't hurt to go to work! Get recommendations on workspace changes, modifications or supplemental equipment plus exercises and stretches to help manage pain and promote comfort while working.
