I have been referred to Longevity at least 4 times over the past 8 years. My referring physicians and I have been very satisfied with each course of therapy. The therapists conduct a measurable evaluation before I start therapy and when my therapy sessions are completed, the evaluation is repeated so my doctor and I can see where I was and my measured improvement. While Longevity has a variety of physical therapy patients, I have always gone because of balance and walking issues. I am a 73 year old with Inner ear balance issues.

As a competitive athlete, it's refreshing to work with a PT that not only respects what you do, but supports you in wanting to get back to 100% healthy and doing whatever sport or activity you love. That is Dr. Andrew. I worked with him for a few years while rehabbing a pretty significant back injury that also effected my nerves. He did more than just get me back to my old self -- he served as a sounding board for me on my recovery journey as well as a friend that was there to listen to my anger and frustrations when things weren't progressing as I hoped. It was apparent how much he truly cared about helping me recover and getting me back to my sport -- I have never worked with another PT who was more "in my corner" than Dr. Andrew. He's extremely smart, professional and an absolute pleasure to work with; I can't recommend him enough!!

I work with Meghan Zwahlen at Longevity Physical Therapy in San Diego. I have gained strength and increased flexibility and mobility while working with Meghan. She is very knowledgeable and so encouraging and I always look forward to our sessions. Even during Covid, the online visits have been extremely beneficial. I am now awaiting hip surgery and am working on what we call 'prehab'. With this exercise I know it will enable me to recover more quickly, and I do look forward to that! Thanks to everyone at Longevity!

I couldn’t possibly choose a favorite from among the people who have been my physical therapists at Longevity Physical Therapy, because the current one is always my favorite. Most recently, Dr. Andrew Pavlov was the amazing person who helped my body & soul; he identified & homed in on muscles I wasn’t aware that I had in his efforts to fix what was ailing me. Through focused conversation, he developed exercises for me that were spot-on in creating a plan that was revised as progress was made.If you are fortunate enough to find yourself a patient of Andrew’s, you will learn that his mind never stops in his efforts to improve your condition. While he is supervising your performance of the exercise he’s just shown you, he is likely one step ahead, thinking of new exercises for you or variations on those he’s already given you. You will soon see his kind & compassionate nature, his delightful sense of humor, & his fabulous shoe collection! Thank you, Andrew!

After over 8 years of dealing with terrible shoulder pain, seeing multiple PTs and over 6 months with a chiro I was referred to Longevity by my Ortho Surgeon as a last resort in order to avoid shoulder surgery. Joe has truly changed my life as has his intern! From the minute I met Joe he made me feel super comfortable and asked all of the right questions regarding my history. After doing the initial exam Joe told me exactly what my ortho thought might be my issue, stemmed from the neck. This was was affecting my shoulder and also my hands, which would go numb randomly. After only two weeks of seeing Joe I already feel so much better, I can sleep without pain and am no longer in tears of frustration during a workout because my right arm can actually function. I am still seeing Joe regularly as we are now working on strengthening muscles I didn't even know I had. After seeing so many specialists and trying everything under the sun, I am eternally grateful for Joe at Longevity. Thank you so much for being so awesome and helping me stay away from surgery and even more importantly for helping me become stronger and more stable. I honestly don't know what I would have done without you guys!

I had a partial knee replacement a bit over a year ago. This was my second one, so I knew it wasn’t quite right. There was no more pain, but there was definitely discomfort. I saw my surgeon and he confirmed that the problem was scar tissue. Not much can be done about that as removing it would only result in more scar tissue. He recommended I go back into physical therapy (PT) and that I get a stationary bike. But, he said, the only PT to go to is Longevity and be sure to work with Joe Chen. And that is exactly what I did. Joe examined me and confirmed the problem, adding that my weak ankle was likely also contributing to the problem. He worked for me twice a week for about a month and then once a week until I was discharged. He gave me home exercises to do and worked with me to figure out how to best do them at home. He agreed with the surgeon’s suggestion to get a stationary bike and went out of his way to help me find one that was comfortable and affordable. And now the discomfort has resolved. I continue to do my home exercise and ride my bike and I am so grateful to my surgeon for recommending Joe and more importantly, to Joe for taking such good care of me.I must add that in this time of COVID, I was a bit hesitant at first, about going to a physical therapist. But Longevity felt so safe. Everyone coming in has their temperature checked. Every machine and piece of equipment is cleaned over and over again. Other patients were placed far away from me. It could not have been a safer environment.

On 1/14/2019 I had a right hip replacement that was delayed for a year + due to urgent personal issues. During that time both my hip degenerated with a crippling effect & I experienced much weakness & increasing health issues. The delay was critical & my health markedly declined. Post surgery I was referred to LONGEVITY by my surgeon. The professionalism, kindness, clarity & communications started with Joe Chen who coordinates with Alyssa who is a therapy aid. The front desk is so very helpful in so many ways: Maliha, Sandra & Shelley. After 2 weeks there is much improvement in gait as all physical issues are being addressed. I am so very grateful & thankful!

Casey Waler is amazing. I was diagnosed with Achilles Tendonitis. I was a mess. I couldnt walk without severe pain, had extreme difficulty with stairs and my beloved golf game was a fraction of it used to be.Casey is patient, supportive, and very enthusiastic. He taught me physical skills that I can use for the rest of life. Im now walking 3-4 miles a day, have no difficulty with stairs, and I shot the best round of golf in 9 months.This young man is a truly wonderful human. He answered my prayers to a return to normal.

I would like to express my gratitude to Meghan and Sabor for their expertise and kindness during my therapy. I am very familiar with PT as I have experienced a number of orthopedic surgeries. The care that I have received at Longevity Physical Therapy is targeted and effective and fun. I highly recommend Longevity Physical Therapy. ❣️

The entire team and staff here are top notch. They are knowledgeable, very thorough, and fun. I never feel like I'm walking out worse than when I arrived, and they listen and respond to my questions and concerns. Their Covid protocols are on point, too.I highly recommend the Longevity team. I am a returning patient coming back this year with a shoulder issue (a couple years ago was for my knee). I honestly wouldn't go anywhere else.

Recommended to us by the very top MD in So Cal, and subsequently by me. You've heard of "The Right Stuff"? well, they've got it. Apart from the occasional very fortunate student, every one of them is a full Doctor. It's where professional ball players go.

First I should say that I came to Longevity as my doctor told me, “I’m going to send you to my favorite physical therapy facility.” And I am glad he did! I have only worked with Meghan and she has been wonderful. She is extremely personable and knowledgeable and has greatly facilitated my recovery from a torn knee meniscus. The facility is quite nice with all the equipment I could think they would need. I would highly recommend LPT to my friends and others.

The work I have experienced with Joe Chen and his staff at Longevity (Mission Gorge) has been both fruitful and enjoyable in my journey towards recovery. I do not have a simple case and was in need of a group that was capable of creating "on the fly" when I first came in. I found what I was looking for, and then some. We collaborate and communicate every step of the way. Each time I set foot into the facility, I see care and expert treatment taking place both for myself and the other clients. The team works very hard and takes pride in shaping itself to your needs, with a positive tone and plenty of patience. You will benefit at Longevity and I freely say, this is a rare place that combines intelligence with heart in helping people move/think/and feel better. Be well. - Mark Kertenian

I moved states 5 weeks post op for my acl. Longevity was my third physical therapy clinic I’d been too during my recovery. It was also by far the best! They came highly recommended by my orthopedic doctor! Not only did they significantly improve my my Injury, but they took a wholistic approach to all the other body parts that effected my long term success! The clinic was always clean friendly and professional! Shoutout to PT Casey for making it a great experience!

I love Longevity Physical Therapy. I work in healthcare and chose this location to refer athletes here because they don’t just sit you on a table and do ultrasound or electrical stimulation. They actually work with you to get you feeling better and pain free. Currently my PT for my neck pain is Meghan and she’s amazing. This is my 2nd time going to Longevity for a different injury. I wouldn’t go anywhere else. Highly recommend.

Joe is extremely knowledgeable and has done an outstanding job of getting me back in competition after patellar tendon surgery. I was so impressed with his preparation for each session and his ability to customize my sessions that now my wife is getting PT with him for her hip issues. Ask for Joe if you want one of the best in San Diego.

In a word, Longevity Physical Therapy (LPT) is awesome! Over almost 6 months of 2019, the staff at Mission Gorge successfully tackled issues with my knee, elbow and shoulder as requested by my primary care physician. Along the way, I had a series of back spasms, which have plagued me for much of my adult life. Without missing a beat, the team tackled the spasms directly through various treatments and adjusted my therapy program to address the underlying issues. Miraculously to me, I am now able to do things and contemplate doing other things that I would never have thought about because I was always worried about “my back”. Beyond even the success of treating my knee, elbow and shoulder, the success with my back has been truly transformational. The flexibility, care, compassion, support, patience and humor that all the staff demonstrated were outstanding. I recommend LPT at Mission Gorge to all my friends.

First came here for a shoulder issue that I have been trying to treat for a year. Took only about two months to fix here. Then I severely agitated my back, and in only a month it is almost back to normal. It is no exaggeration when I state that the staff at Longevity gave me the ability to do the things I love again. The treatment I received and the knowledge I learned here to prevent injuries in the future has objectively improved quality of life for me.

The whole staff at Longevity do an amazing job. This is my second set of physical therapy there with treatment by Tanner last year and returning this month with Audrey as my PT therapist. Both do an incredible job of listening to what is happening with you physically and know exactly how to address each problem. And it doesn't hurt that they are both just great people so I would not hesitate to recommend any friend or family member to Longevity!

The equipment at this facility on Mission Gorge Place is different and better than I've experienced other facilities and the floor space is generous. I would recommend anyone to experience for themselves. You will be glad!

At Longevity San Diego some of our clientele includes post surgical patients, those with reduced function, and athletes of all types.

We incorporate sport-specific movements into our therapeutic exercises to best prepare the neuromuscular system for return to sport. We don’t practice cookie cutter PT; each patient receives an individualized plan of care based on their unique needs.

San Diego Staff

One of our specialties at our San Diego clinic lies in vestibular rehabilitation, balance training and fall prevention.

We work to retrain your body’s ability to communicate between the muscles and nervous system at a more optimal level, using personalized rehabilitation programs and advanced equipment such as the AlterG Treadmill, Spine Force and True Stretch.

Our Equipment

AlterG Treadmill

AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmills enable faster rehabilitation, safer conditioning for the geriatric population, and weight loss, which can help remove major obstacles associated with these activities.

Impact on the body and the pain of recovery are reduced, which helps people achieve better results. Patients at Longevity Physical Therapy can now rehab better, train smarter and exercise safer with the AlterG.

Spine Force

The SpineForce Reactive Neuromuscular Trainer was designed to strengthen, rehabilitate and tone the deep spinal musculature of the back. The device is easy to use and safe for all levels of the balance-impaired or those suffering from low back pain. While traditional, low tech exercises work only one plane of motion, the SpineForce’s tri-dimensional action engages the mind and challenges patients with a precise and intense spinal strengthening treatment.

The SpineForce was designed to create a unique muscular performance environment that challenges the somatosensory system to improve strength, coordination, balance and posture.

True Stretch

The True Stretch is the easiest and most effective tool to stretch and mobilize the body in all three planes of motion. It is ideal for restoring and maintaining the 3-D muscle and joint mobility and stability that is essential for all upright function. The True Stretch provides a dedicated, self-contained stretching area that allows users of all ages and body types a safe platform for comprehensive stretching to increase flexibility and reduce the risk of injury. The True Stretch eliminates the need for floor-based stretching or leaning uncomfortably over other equipment.
