I am the clinics Physical therapy assistant. This is perfect for me because I have always loved being active working with and helping others. I played sports growing up and would motivate my friends to join me. Practiced gymnastics for 13 years and loved how it challenged my mind and body. Went to college in Santa Barbara where I received my AA in liberal arts to transfer to a 4 year school. I looked into physical therapy after many friends and family members told me that this profession would be perfect for me. Pursued my education at Carrington College and received a degree for physical therapy assisting. Love coming to work every day because I get to work with people and make them feel better! I enjoy the challenge of working with athletes, but I also love helping elderly gain their independence. On my free time I love traveling, hiking, being with friends, and always looking for new experiences!
Rita G. Reid
Born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, I graduated from University of the Pacific with a Masters Degree in Physical Therapy . I have 30 years of experience in orthopedics, balance, vestibular, and postural dysfunctions of the musculoskeletal system.
Most recently, I have become certified in treating Urinary Incontinence and Pelvic Floor Dysfunction. Research says 1-4 women will experience leakage of urine during running,coughing, laughing, or sneezing between the ages of 20-60 years. Neurological re-education of the pelvic floor with functional movements such as sitting standing or 1/2 lunges gives better outcomes than the Kegels exercises. I enjoy any sport having to do with water. I have competed on a National level in water skiing, windsurfing and paddle-boarding in Santa Cruz. On weekends, you may see me hiking around the Bay Area with my husband of 35 years and dog Koa.
In middle school, my brother broke his leg while we were messing around in the back yard. My mom said that since I was partially to blame for his injury, then I was to be his main caretaker at home. Naturally, it started with “get me this and that, get me ice cream, etc.”, but eventually, I was helping him with his crutches and then his leg and balance exercises. I felt a sense of pride with my brother’s full recovery and decided to pursue P.T. professionally. After earning a B.S. in Biology, I studied at Boston University where I earned my MSPT in Physical Therapy.
I worked at and eventually managed an outpatient P.T. clinic in Vallejo, CA for ten years, then spent 7 plus years at a post-acute rehab center in Danville, CA where I gained experience in treating patients with strokes, amputations, total hip and knee replacements, fractures from falls and a host of other diagnoses.
Outside of work, I fancy myself as an amateur entomologist and have an extensive butterfly collection. As for my brother – he owns an ice cream shop in L.A.
I am a Bay Area native and graduated from UC Davis with a degree in Exercise Biology. Then, I earned my Doctorate in Physical Therapy from the University of the Pacific. I have experience in a broad range of treatments and modalities, working in private outpatient orthopedic clinics. Some of my favorite aspects of being a physical therapist are the one-on-one interaction with patients and guiding them as they progress through their treatment. Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, going to concerts and sporting events, hiking, and cooking.
I graduated from Stockton University in New Jersey with a Doctorate of Physical Therapy in 2013. I worked for Twin Boro Physical Therapy in Newark, NJ with a diverse caseload of orthopedic work injury patients. After 2 years of working in New Jersey, I became a travel physical therapist for next 3 years. I have worked in many outpatient clinics, home health, and skilled nursing facilities during that time. I love the bay area so much that I decided to relocate here. I believe Back on Track Physical Therapy is the perfect place for me to practice my skills as an orthopedic physical therapist. Our treatments in the clinic are evidence based and directed towards your pain and/or functional goals. I have been trained in spinal and extremity mobilization and manipulation techniques, and orthopedic myofascial release. I believe the way to success is to maintain a positive attitude, minimize disability, and return to prior level of function as soon as possible. I also believe in empowering patients to understand their condition and know how to treat themselves. Outside the clinic, I enjoy hiking, fishing, photography, fitness training, and watching football. My favorite team is the Pittsburgh Steelers.
I graduated from UC San Diego with a degree in Biochemistry. After several years working in cancer research, I decided my true passion was to empower people in their recovery after injury. I went to Eastern Washington University to pursue my Doctor of Physical Therapy degree and graduated in 2018. I love working with a variety of orthopedic diagnosis ranging from post-surgical to shoulder and back pain. As an avid rock climber and runner, I understand how optimal movement is key to one’s quality of life. I strive to guide people in their rehabilitation so they can get back to their passions and hobbies.
