We will continue to comply with all Santa Clara County orders and help in flattening the curve of the COVID-19 pandemic. According to Dr. Luis Matos, an expert in host/pathogen interactions, physical therapists play an important role in helping people improve and keep them out of doctor offices/ER's. This will limit the exposure of these patients as well as keep medical teams free to treat those impacted by COVID-19.

"Two years ago I broke my arm/shoulder (the bottom of the ball of the humerus) falling off my bike in a triathlon. I had to have major surgery and the doctor wasn’t sure if I'd ever regain enough range of motion to swim again. He sent me to Scott Plank to begin PT three weeks after the surgery. Scott is very knowledgeable and professional and will provide as much information as you would like on the exercises that he gives you each step of the way. He has a very gentle manner but, at the same time, will push you as far as necessary and appropriate to make the necessary gains (and, yes, some pain is necessary for the gains). Long story short, I was swimming laps again by ten weeks after the surgery. I had PT for six months, the last few months being spent recovering the last few degrees of range. I made a 100% recovery and went on to take first place in my age division in my next tri, the following year."
"In July of 2009 I suffered a serious injury to my right foot, a 'blow-out fracture' of the calcaneus - the heel bone. At the time, I had no idea how bad it was, but found out quickly from my doctor that there were multiple fractures and significant displacement. Prognosis was an absolute minimum of 1 year and up to 3 years for healing and recovery. 3-1/2 hours of reconstructive surgery including a plate and 8 screws, was followed by 12 weeks of being on my back with the foot elevated to manage swelling. Then it was crutches, casts, immobilization boot - all before I could even start physical therapy. My doctor, who also treats the SF Giants and the 49ers, recommended Scott for my physical therapy. 13 months later, I've had more than enough time to evaluate him. Scott is extremely knowledgeable, capable, caring and careful. I have defied the odds, and am walking without a limp, jogging, biking and hiking again - as close to 100% as I could have hoped for, and best of all, I'm pain free. No way would this good a recovery have happened, and happened so quickly, if it hadn't been for Scott's treatments. I remain thankful to him every day."
"I started in physical therapy with Scott Plank at City Sport, about a year and a half ago. Scott was recommended to me by my husband and father-in-law who had previously received physical therapy at City Sport. My therapy began after I had surgery to repair a complete tear of my left rotator cuff. My surgeon and primary physician consistently told me I must have a great physical therapist since I regained my range of motion and my strength much quicker than they expected. For this reason I chose to return to City Sport again following surgery for a meniscus tear. City Sport is not a part of my HMO but I felt it was worth going outside my provider network to make sure I had the best treatment. I would recommend Scott Plank at City Sport because he knows how to work with the body to get previous functioning restored and in my case allow me to be stronger than before the injury."
"This place is the best. I injured my Achilles tendon and suffered with it for about a year and then went to Scott at City Sport. He not only has been rehabbing the Achilles but has taken a whole person approach. He has strengthened my core to help with my bad back. I have been able to begin hiking again and my back issues have almost vanished. Scott is a very knowledgeable, professional and interested in you as a person. He has helped me get my life back. What more can I say?"
"My back specialist diagnosed me with a slightly bulging disc and recommended PT. Scott had treated two of my co-workers with excellent results so I had complete confidence in his abilities and professionalism. He insisted that not only would he help me become pain free again, he would teach me exercises that I could do for the rest of my life so I would need ongoing physical therapy. He was right, I have no pain now and because of his expertise and encouragement, I have the knowledge and confidence to build on what he taught me and am back enjoying the outdoors again. Thanks Scott!"
"As a High School and College Football Coach of 21 years, I have seen many sports-related injuries, throughout my tenure. When I experienced my second and third shoulder surgeries in 2008 and 2009, I was concerned about my future and how could I possibly fully recover given the severity of my injuries. There were numerous complications and I was extremely discouraged with the Dr.’s prognosis.
For my rehabilitation, I chose Scott Plank (City Sport Physical Therapy) based on his: reputation, integrity and quality of results. From the first day, I was impressed with his knowledge of my injuries and his experience. He articulated a plan that was goal-oriented and results-driven given my limited range of motion and lack of strength. I was extremely impressed with his diligence, and approaches towards problem-solving which resulted in an amazing recovery. Today, I am at my best because of Scott and I am forever grateful."
