Tom Walters

Rehab Scientist

Specialist in the treatment of musculoskeletal pain and movement disorders. Combining kinesiology education, manual therapy and individually tailored therapeutic exercise to treat orthopedic conditions.

Welcome and here is a little bit about me.

I am a board-certified orthopedic physical therapist and kinesiology professor based in Santa Barbara, California. In addition to my clinical practice, I also run one of the world’s largest social media accounts dedicated to physical rehab (@rehabscience on Instagram). Please come follow more of my work there!

I completed my bachelor of science (B.S.) in exercise science at Montana State University and then earned a Doctor of Physical Therapy (D.P.T.) degree at Chapman University in Southern California. Afterwards, I completed a residency in orthopedic manual physical therapy (OMPT) and a fellowship in lower quarter functional biomechanics. 

I am a board-certified Orthopedic Clinical Specialist (OCS) by the American Board of Physical Therapy Specialties and a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) by the National Strength and Conditioning Association. 

I have worked in outpatient orthopedics most of my career, but have also spent some time in the sports rehab arena when I worked as a physiotherapist in Cirque du Soleil’s Performance Medicine department.

I hope you find my site helpful and I look forward to helping you move better and with less pain!

-Tom
