ABOUT CARP PHYSIO
Physical Therapy is the art and science of applying physical agents, forces, exercise, and manual techniques to promote healing and increase function and well being. We work within the broader medical community and emphasize evidence based interventions supported by medical research. A Physical Therapist practitioner (PT) is licensed by the state in which he/she practices and in California is represented by the Physical Therapy Board of California.
Most patients are referred to us by their personal physician or specialist. We evaluate and treat patients to address functional limitations related to a medical diagnosis, and/or a physical or neurological condition. Our primary insight is to evaluate human movement and design a treatment plan to overcome or mitigate abnormal movement and dysfunction. We evaluate each patient to address gross and fine motor control, musculoskeletal integrity, postural dynamics, and strength and range of motion. A treatment plan is formulated with the patient according to his goals and treatment potential.
Physical Therapy has been proven to be effective in addressing a multitude of ailments including pain, weakness, postural dysfunction, gait and balance disturbance, and poor endurance.
Manual and movement based orthopedic physical therapy in Carpinteria are.
Hands on technique that involves applying sustained pressure to the myofascial connective tissue restrictions to eliminate pain and restoring motion.
Your body is like a car in that it might need a tune up or an oil change every now and then. Come in to get movement or postural analysis done to prevent more serious injuries down the road.
Rehab for all types of orthopedic surgeries including but not limited to total knee/hip replacements, rotator cuff, lumbar fusions, discectomies, ACL reconstruction and meniscus repairs.
Most headaches are caused by tension in your neck and upper shoulders which can be resolved through physical therapy. Dr. Flores uses a hands on approach and the patient education to get rid of your pain.

200 million Americans suffer from back pain and most of it can be managed through physical therapy. Dr. Flores specialized in a hands on approach, finding the injured tissue and eliminating the pain.

Who can benefit from physical therapy?
Anyone having a limitation due to pain, weakness, loss of motion or mobility, can be helped by physical therapy.
Do I need a prescription from my doctor before I start physical therapy?
We can perform an evaluation prior to getting a prescription, but current law requires we have one for continued treatment if it is necessary.
What should I wear to my appointments?
Loose fitting clothing that you would be comfortable exercising in is preferred. Also a closed toe or “sneaker” type shoe is most appropriate.
Can I bring my children or other family members to my appointments?
Due to patient privacy concerns we ask that family members and children remain home unless they are a caregiver for the patient.
What are your hours?
We are open Monday through Thursday 8:00 am – 6:00 pm and Friday 8:00 am – 2 pm.
