Physical Therapy in Woodland Hills, California
Dynamic Physical Therapy Woodland Hills
Dynamic Physical Therapy’s specialized professionals are highly educated and experienced. They can successfully evaluate, manage, and rehabilitate orthopedic, neurologic, and cardiovascular conditions that affect your movement, including those resulting from injuries and operations. Your customized treatment plan will consist of repetitive training and careful manual manipulation to:
– Improve your strength
– Increase your range of motion
– Decrease your pain
you’ll be able to initiate your treatment within a few days of the initial injury or onset of the condition. Beginning range-of-motion therapies and exercises as quickly as possible is vital to the prevention of long-term limitations. The longer you wait to get started, the more rehabilitation the injury or condition will require. Once you begin your treatment plan, your physical therapist will continuously guide you and assess your progress to ensure optimal recovery. Ongoing rehabilitation may help keep the injured area strong and flexible.
We don’t require physician’s orders.
Healthcare in the U.S. tends to give doctors and insurance companies control over treatment, but no one knows your body like you do. The California Direct Access Assembly Bill 1000 eliminates the need for physician’s orders when seeking physical therapy. That means you can now have your pain and mobility addressed by a trained professional without obtaining a referral from your primary care provider.
Skipping that time-consuming step allows you to start treatment sooner and receive care that is more effective in the long run. Starting your treatment sooner improves your prognosis, giving you the best chance at optimal recovery from your injury, disease, or condition.

We understand that you might need documentation on short notice for legal or medical purposes. When you request medical reports or bills related to our services, we’ll do our best to return everything you need within three days.

Not everyone has the option to go to frequent appointments during regular working hours. We stay open until 7 PM on weekdays, so you can get the treatment you need without interfering with your home or work schedule. We’re also open on Saturdays.
Manual (Hands-On) Therapy
It can be challenging to find physical therapists who are still willing to get hands-on with their patients, but that level of dedication is exactly what most people need for optimal recovery. Manual therapy comprises any hands-on techniques that can be safely used to decrease pain and improve the range of motion of the musculoskeletal system. Manual therapy can also be known as:
- Manipulative therapy
- Manual patient care
- Orthopedic manual therapy
By physically mobilizing, stretching, and manipulating the affected joints and muscles, we help our patients eliminate pain and disability, sometimes instantly. This fast and long-lasting relief is why we believe the integration of manual therapy as part of an individualized treatment plan is essential to exceptional patient care. Our patients often experience restoration of power and movement to their joints and muscles after just one appointment.
Manual physical therapy is based on thorough assessments of your existing condition and constant communication between you and your physical therapist. According to vast collections of research, customized manual interventions provide the most effective treatment when combined with targeted exercise.
