Physical Therapy

SPEAR Physical Therapy, co-founded by CEO Dan Rootenberg and David Endres, was named the #1 private PT practice in the nation by the American Physical Therapy Association, in part due to its unparalleled approach to patient care. Seventy percent of SPEAR's experienced PTs are former collegiate or professional athletes (three times the industry norm), and bring to each patient encounter a history of high-performance athletics and an intimate knowledge of post-injury rehab. This distinct perspective has led to one of the highest customer satisfaction ratings (96.7%) in the industry. Their team of talented, dedicated and customer service orientated team members are passionate about providing exceptional care to their patients and their consistent 5-star online reviews exemplify that.

As it is with all members of the LA PALESTRA Medical Staff, the Physical Therapists are actively involved with LA PALESTRA Members on a daily basis.  SPEAR Physical Therapy is utilized by LA PALESTRA members in three ways: first, as part of each member's initial screening and evaluation and at annual follow ups, second, as a referral source for injury triage and treatment and third as a part of our integrated protocol treatment for members who are concurrently undergoing therapy and training.
