Moscardi Physical Therapy
Providing One on One Patient Care
Our goal at Moscardi Physical Therapy is to provide one on one patient care with a physical therapist each visit. Exercise programs are individualized according to the patient’s injury. Once range of motion and healing of tissue has been achieved, a thorough strength training program will be initiated. Moscardi Physical Therapy has access to an 8000 square foot gym that has high end cardiovascular equipment and resistive strength machines.
Moscardi Physical Therapy originated in 2004 with the main office located in the Pismo Medical Campus. We are pleased to provide quality outpatient physical therapy to the central coast. We specialize in the rehabilitation process for several musculoskeletal disorders pre and post-surgery. We also offer gym programs for strength and conditioning, balance training for neuromuscular disorders and home health services to aid in gait and transfer training.
If you have any questions on how Moscardi Physical Therapy can assist you in a healthier lifestyle, please call 481-8272 or contact us through the website.
