We get athletes back to sport faster and performing better

We are North County San Diego’s Sports Physical Therapists of choice - just read the reviews. We have helped countless athletes return to sport in less time by making the Physical Therapy treatments custom-fit to the athlete and sport. Our treatment strategy starts with the athlete’s needs and demands of the sport to shape your treatment plan with constant focus on performance and competitive goals.

Athletes have different demands when it comes to rehab and training. Make sure you choose a Physical Therapist that knows the stress of sports so that your Physical Therapy is geared toward getting you back to action. Our Doctors of Physical Therapy have specialized training in working with athletes to ensure that we are up-to-date on the latest strength and performance evidence - and applying that knowledge to get you the best results from your rehab. This means putting your top performance to work right after therapy.

If you are a high school athlete getting recruited or a recreational athlete looking to get an edge on your way back from an injury, you need a team that can get the most out of you - in less time. We have the skills to make you better - even after injury.

What drives you?

Many athletes don’t feel safe or strong enough to endure the rigors of competition after typical Physical Therapy treatment. Our team specializes in return to sports performance. Our return to sport testing utilizes the latest research, technology, and methods to make sure the transition is safe and athletes are well prepared. Strength and agility are keys to successful return to the field - and our team also makes sure that athletes are mentally prepared and confident to perform at a high level.

Injury can impact on your life in many ways. At One Nine, your injury isn’t the story we focus on. Instead, we want to hear what drives you - and make a plan to get you there as quickly as possible.

When you meet your sports therapist, you will recognize right away the difference in the One Nine approach. We learn about YOU - your life, your goals, and how you want to be treated. This is no cookie-cutter operation or mill. We take personalized care very seriously and gear every treatment to your needs on that day, and as a part of who you want to be. By being a support and guide for you to achieve athletic success, we can get fast and meaningful results.
