Virtual Physical Therapists in “California”

Virtual Physical Therapists (VPT) is active in California, and California is one of our busiest states. We were the only company able to treat injured workers on a national level during COVID. We have worked with many employers and insurers in CA, including Kaiser Permanente, Sedgwick, UPS, FedEx, LA Unified School district, Walmart, Starbucks, SkyWest, Lancaster School District, San Diego Unified School district, City of Santa Monica, National Park, Costco, Oak Grove School district, United Ground Express and many more.

VPT clinicians treat all musculoskeletal disorders, including orthopedic, neurological, pediatric, geriatric, sports medicine, and more. All our clinicians are state-licensed physical therapists and must also have advanced training and certification in Mechanical Diagnosis & Treatment (Cert. MDT). This advanced training assures that every patient receives the highest standard of care.

VPT focuses on uncovering the specific cause of your symptoms rather than just providing you with a generalized exercise program. Your first visit starts with a comprehensive evaluation in which your therapist will evaluate your symptoms and rule out other conditions and even other joints to assure that your treatment program is targeted to the actual problem and not symptoms.

Our specialists will also educate you on the cause of your problem and how you can self-treat!

We Treat All Musculoskeletal Disorders

Musculoskeletal disorders (MSK) are everyday aches and pains that affect your muscle and joints and include everything from back pain to ankle sprains. Direct Access allows our clinicians to evaluate and treat without a physician’s prescription, saving time and money. All our PTs are also Certified in MDT – this advanced training enables a more thorough evaluation to determine the root cause of mechanical disorders. Mechanical disorders are affected by movement and account for most musculoskeletal pain. If your symptoms are not affected by movement, then your symptoms are referred from a non-mechanical cause, and our PTs will immediately refer you to your physician for further testing.

Our PTs specialize in evaluating the underlying cause of pain, range of motion and strength deficits, poor balance, and altered proprioception.

Our treatment is focused on empowering each of our patients to self-treat. This is done by educating on the cause of the problem, what will aggravate and relieve symptoms, and most importantly, how each of our patients can treat themselves!

Our highly advanced clinicians can evaluate and treat all musculoskeletal pain and symptoms, including herniated discs, Sciatica, sprains, strains, tendonitis, headaches, joint pain and arthritis, balance deficits, and ligament tears dislocations, falls, and pre and post-surgical.

We treat all ages, workers’ compensation, motor vehicle accidents, group health, and self-pay.

Why Choose VPT:

VPT’s mission is to provide excellence in care to every patient consistently. We do this by requiring all our physical therapists to be not only state-licensed but also Certified in Mechanical Diagnosis. This additional training enables our clinicians to uncover the actual cause of pain rather than a general diagnosis based on where your symptoms are located. Research has found that 43% of extremity symptoms originate in the spine. Our assessments start with ruling out the spine and other non-muscular causes, assuring you receive a precise treatment plan for your problem rather than a general exercise program based on symptom location.

The second focus of care is on patient education. VPT clinicians strive to assure you understand the cause of your pain and how you can self-treat and prevent a reoccurrence. Follow-up visits start with a reassessment to ensure that our diagnosis and treatment plan are correct and you are making progress.


“I have had neck pain, on and off for years. I have been going to a chiropractor, but the pain kept coming back. Two weeks ago I was unable to turn my head to the right, and had difficulty driving.  A friend told me about the McKenzie assessment and after only two virtual visits my symptoms are completely gone, and now I know how to prevent it from coming back again!” – Joan M. (Receptionist)

“I had back surgery 5 years ago.  The symptoms in my left leg came back after doing some yard work, and I could barely walk.  The virtual visit was great, since I did not have to leave my house. It only took a single visit, and the pain in my leg was 90% better”. –  Jim R. (Contractor)

“My knee was swollen and I could not walk. My doctor recommended surgery but my kids wanted me to try therapy first. After 3 weeks I am able to walk down steps again without any pain. I can’t believe the relief that I feel without invasive surgery! I never knew that this level of pain relief was possible without surgery! What a tremendous and innovative service that Virtual Physical Therapy provides! – Cecil S. (78 y.o)

“I am a long distance runner and have had plantar fasciitis for 10 months. I waisted so much time going from one doctor to another to get relief and even had injections.  I was so impressed with my first virtual visit and now I am able to get up in the morning without pain.” – Megan C. (38 yo)

As an avid daily weight lifter, I developed a serious pain in my right elbow that worsened when I did bicep curls. I had to stop the exercise altogether. The exercise that I was given instantly give me relief!  – Mike H (Weight Lifter)

After about a long 3 months of hopelessness for back issues that every physician said I needed surgery for, I stumbled across the VPT site and found Aideen. I signed up for an appointment, not knowing what to expect. I was hesitant to follow her instructions because I was afraid my back was going to worsen. Though, throughout my time with her, I felt that I can trust her and she made it very comfortable for me because she explained the need for everything she was asking me to do. By the end of my appointment with her, I felt better than I did throughout my 3 months of agonizing pain. Every physician I saw for help did not give me substantial medical advice to improve my condition. I saw Aideen multiple times after and she got me back into a condition where my pain was manageable with the exercises she taught me to do, keeping in mind that I was unable to even walk a short distance and couldn’t sleep from back pain. I really believe that she is God-sent. I am forever grateful and thankful to her and so happy I am able to have come across someone so wonderful and knowledgeable in her field. I will continue to rave about her to all and everyone who is looking for back pain relief. Working with Aideen was the best decision I could have made in my road to recovery from my back pain.-Katya K.
