Physical Therapists

Balance Physical Therapy & Human Performance Center strives to be the most patient-focused, result-oriented rehabilitation facility on the Central Coast. Be part of a growing out-of-network practice that is 100 percent owned by physical therapists.

We seek energetic, community-minded PTs (full-time or part-time) with original ideas about providing hands-on service as special and unique as the patients we serve. Since 2002, our team members have thrived within our “same physical therapist every visit” care model, providing outstanding personal attention to each individual patient, from evaluation to discharge to follow-up.

As a member of our  collaborative clinical team, you’ll have the opportunity to treat a wide variety of diagnoses (post-surgical and non-surgical) in an outpatient setting, working together in an environment that has a profound and positive impact on the lives of everyone we treat. We accomplish this by living our Core Values, embodied in our S.T.R.O.N.G acronym:

Service to Patients.
Team Leadership.
Readiness to Learn.
Outstanding Initiative.
Notable Positivity.
Guidance to Others.

In addition to physical therapy, our facilities provide other services, including: massage therapy; personal training; fitness memberships; group fitness classes; balance and fall prevention classes; athletic training partnerships with local schools; strength and conditioning; and sports physicals.

Our future team member must possess a license in good standing to practice or have PTLA status in California, and he or she must be able to work with a variety of patients and co-workers in a dynamic environment consisting of PTs, athletic trainers, massage therapists, aides, post-discharge gym members, and fitness class leaders. Perhaps most importantly, the perfect candidate will possess a positive, healthy attitude, and take pride in their work and in our shared profession.

Our PT positions offer an extremely competitive salary, in addition to bonuses and/or student-loan reimbursement. We provide medical, dental, vision, and life insurance benefits, an annual professional-level subscription to MedBridge for unlimited continuing education, a week of PTO for con-ed, $2,000 for con-ed tuition, and an additional 2-weeks of vacation accrual Year 1. We also offer a safe-harbor 401-K retirement plan with a 4% match, and can be very flexible with scheduling, depending on clinic needs. For those therapists with an interest in management and/or ownership, those opportunities exist as well.

Phyiscal Therapy Aides

A physical therapy aide job is a great step in a healing career. At Balance Physical Therapy® and Human Performance Center, Inc., physical therapy aides are an integral part of our team. They help to bridge the gap between therapists and patients in the areas of exercise instruction/supervision, modality application, and patient flow in the clinic.

A physical therapy aide is expected to be able to multitask in the areas of patient supervision/instruction, schedule-keeping (insofar as keeping a patient on task is concerned), clinic cleaning (tables, stools, equipment, etc.), laundry washing and folding, and alerting the therapists to reported changes in the patient’s condition. In addition, helping to maintain clinic inventory by alerting management to supply needs is of utmost importance. Although most of our aides are people interested in eventually going to graduate school to become physical therapists, some are already Certified Athletic Trainers, Certified Personal Trainers, Certified Massage Practitioners, and some hold Master’s Degrees in Exercise Science and other areas. Formal education as noted above is NOT required to become a physical therapy aide, but if you have a passion for helping people, want to learn a lot about human anatomy, manual therapy, and exercise intervention, then our clinics are the place for you!

Our physical therapy aides are indispensable to us; however, it needs to be made clear that we are a highly professional organization, and under no circumstances does an aide ever progress a patient, treat a patient with manual therapy techniques, or otherwise touch a patient except for instructional purposes as it relates to exercise. All patient progression in our clinics is performed only by licensed doctors of physical therapy, or with their exclusive direction and permission.
