Montoya Physical Therapy
Your Movement and Mobility Specialists

Montoya Physical Therapy and Wellness was founded in 2017 by Rick and Kelly Montoya, who are both Doctors of Physical Therapy. MPTW was created on the principle that our delivery method of therapy will be hands-on and in a personalized manner. Together with our patients, we will work together to achieve our patients’ and their doctor’s goals.

Our comprehensive approach of treatment is addressing relief of pain, promoting healing and preventing future injury, with the addition of patient education in physical therapy techniques, and rehabilitation. We only use a research-based practice to create a highly individualized program that will result in a healthier you. This strategy aims to quicken results, shorten recovery time, and prevent re-injury. And better yet, all of this experience will be provided in a family-like and lighthearted environment.

Our patient population is diverse, from all ages and all physical conditions and occupations including teachers, retirees, nurses, high school and college coaches and players, stay at home moms and dads, business professionals, farmers and high school students.

“I cannot thank the great staff at Montoya Physical Therapy for their incredible dedication and motivating me to a quick recovery of a broken shoulder.  My range of motion is better than it was before surgery!  I would recommend all people to come to this therapy clinic especially my Medicare friends.  You will love each and every therapist that is here including Natalie, our favorite upfront receptionist!  I cannot say enough things about this facility…and thank you Dr. Shapiro at Southern California Orthopedic Institute (SCOI) for referring them to me!”
