Brianne Slusarenko, PT, DPT, FAFS
Co-Owner

Brianne Slusarenko received her Doctor of Physical Therapy from Loma Linda University. She combines her extensive training in functional biomechanics with a passion for health and fitness to help her clients manage their pain and restore movement.

Drawing from a variety of techniques, including AFS, ART and an integration of neuromuscular, orthopedic, and manual therapy approaches, Brianne designs her treatments to benefit the whole person and tailors each physical therapy session to meet your specific needs; from gentle movement techniques to challenging exercises. She is now also a certified NG306 Nike Golf Performance Specialist, and she uses the same integrative, full-body techniques to analyze and train golfers by identifying and resolving movement and strength limitations to maximize performance on the course. Whether it's lowering your golf handicap, mastering that difficult yoga pose, or simply playing with your grandkids, Brianne is passionate about empowering you to achieve your goals.
