Dr. Joey Salgado, DPT, FRC, TP
Joey graduated from University of the Pacific in Stockton, CA earning his Doctorate in physical therapy. His primary experience has been in outpatient orthopedics treating a variety of musculoskeletal disorders and injury prevention. He believes in pre-hab before rehab and fixing things in our body before they get hurt. He enjoys working with kids that are just starting out in sports, to your desk jockeys that sit and work long grueling hours, and also your high level athlete in any sport. Dr. Joey Salgado prides himself in delivering high quality 1-on-1 care to help his patients perform the activities that they enjoy in their lives.
His training with Movement Links/Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization (DNS) and certification in Selective Functional Movement Assessment (SFMA), Functional Movement System (FMS), Functional Range Conditioning (FRC) and Titleist Performance Institute (TPI) allows him to perform an efficient evaluation in order to analyze the way you move in order to determine source of pain versus only the symptoms that are causing your problem. By utilizing a variety of manual therapy techniques (Graston, Functional Myofascial Release, Myofascial Decompression (MFD)), he is able to improve joint dysfunction and soft tissue restrictions to help improve one’s mobility.
Also, he is a certified Rockdoc using Fascial Movement Taping (FMT) in order to help people get through their activity with more mobility and less pain. Another essential component is being able to prescribe corrective exercises that help restore proper movement patterns to maintain long lasting changes in the body.
As he always is craving new knowledge, he is constantly finding ways to provide the best value for his patients by attending courses to stay on top of new and innovating assessment/treatment techniques. When he is not treating patients, he spends time with his family, friends, and dog. As a physical therapist, he needs to practice what he preaches and does his best to keep up with his own mobility practice to stay healthy. He also plays in basketball leagues and golfs with friends/family on weekends. Balance is the key ingredient to his success and continues to enjoy everything he does in life!
