Momentum Physical Therapy
Momentum Physical Therapy, located in the Sawtelle neighborhood of Los Angeles, California, takes a unique approach to rehabilitative care for orthopedic injuries and chronic pain conditions. Tanya Balakrishnan, MPT, Kelly Masuda, PT, DPT, and their skilled team develop customized treatment plans that combine traditional physical therapy techniques and Pilates-based programs to enhance recovery, improve strength, and boost overall health.
Tanya is an expert in the APPI (Australian Physiotherapy & Pilates Institute) Pilates method and is the first physical therapist in the United States to be certified in this method. Together with Dr. Masuda, she provides individualized care based on their patients’ unique needs. The Momentum Physical Therapy team offers comprehensive rehabilitative and therapeutic services to treat chronic pain from degenerative conditions and orthopedic injuries. They also customize treatments for vertigo, balance disorders, and post-surgical recovery.
The therapy team uses a variety of therapeutic modalities, including soft tissue mobilization, myofascial release, and supervised exercises to reduce inflammation and ease the pain. They also offer continued post-rehabilitation fitness programs to speed up the efficiency of healing and prevent future re-injury.
For clients who want to enhance their core strength and general fitness, the Momentum Physical Therapy team offers private Pilates sessions with a certified instructor. The facility uses the latest equipment from Balanced Body®. Pilates is a highly effective way to strengthen and tone muscles, increase flexibility, and expedite weight loss for those in recovery and for clients who want to improve their general health and wellness.
