Where Evidence Based Treatment Meets Personal Touch

High Desert Therapy and Pacific Coast Therapy are committed to providing each patient with an individual treatment program that is solidly based in clinical research. It is our sincere hope that our passion for our profession and relentless pursuit of quality treatments will help you to achieve your functional goals.

We believe one of our strongest qualities is our evaluation process. After a thorough review of your history of injury and general health, we utilize the most up to date evaluation techniques to help identify the true source of your pain and dysfunction. This is followed by a detailed explanation of our findings, assessment, and recommended treatment program.

One of our primary treatment philosophies is a strong focus on continuing education for our therapists. The world of physical and hand therapy is always advancing and we want to be at the forefront. The following is a partial list of diagnoses and surgeries that we have confidence in treating through our continuing education classes.
