The Desert Institute opened in 1993 and has grown from a two-person operation to a staff of greater than fifteen, including five Physical Therapists, four Athletic Trainers, a Massage Therapist, PT technicians and a complete billing staff to assist you.
Our staff has an average of over 20 years of experience in treating patients. We provide service for patients who have sustained injuries in motor vehicle accidents, sports related injuries and general population. Our staff has worked with patients on the PGA, LPGA and Champion's Tours, Oakland A's, as well as action sport athletes who have competed in the winter & summer X Games and Olympics, including members of the U.S. snowboarding team and Vans Triple Crown of Skateboarding and Snowboarding.
We take great care in scheduling our patients to try to maintain continuity with the same therapist throughout treatments. Our focus is to return patients to their previous activities, examples include: sitting pain free, reaching overhead, sleeping through the night, and returning to sports and recreational activities. We have a front office staff ready to assist you with all of your scheduling needs and we will call your insurance company to verify benefits for you. We have a complete billing staff on site as well.
