Choosing Pack Physical Therapy
Physical therapy is one of the best healthcare choices you can make. It’s a safe, affordable and effective way to manage your pain while providing you with long-lasting health benefits.
Why Our Treatment Works
Our physical therapists are experts in motion. Our clinicians undergo advanced training and pursue certifications, which give them the experience and education to provide you with the highest standard of care. You can be confident that their assessment and recommended treatment will help you recover, protect against future injury and allow you to reach your health goals.
Another great reason to choose our physical therapy is to avoid procedures like surgery or extensive imaging tests — including X-rays, MRIs and CT scans. This can save you money throughout your treatment.
A 2015 study proved initial treatment costs were 50% lower when patients were referred to physical therapy instead of an advanced imaging referral from their primary care consultation. These savings do add up. Over time, using physical therapy first resulted in 72% lower costs within the first year of a patient seeking care.
Your Personalized Treatment Plan
Our experts listen, set goals and create a treatment plan centered around your specific injury or pain to optimize your health. We remain focused on your progress — from your first appointment until your treatment ends. But don’t just take our word for it – our patients regularly recommend us to their family and friends.
We also leverage data and the latest techniques to create effective and efficient treatment options. We offer a wide range of specialized services to relieve your symptoms.

The impact Rausch has made on my knee health over the past year has genuinely been a game changer. Kevin C has not only helped me through multiple injuries, but he always answers all my annoying questions with equally annoying enthusiasm. You go Kevin, thanks for all you do!
Really love this office. I drive by at least 10 other physical therapy offices.
They do a great job! I especially recommend Kenneday (a pt aide). She is WAY more than an “aide”. She does a great job keeping an eye on her patients to ensure they are doing all of their exercises correctly and that they remember all of the exercises.
She is a great part of my recovery and extremely professional and a nice person too!
Recommend this place for your pt needs.
This is the best most thorough physical therapy I have ever been to and there’s been a few. Ruth is my physical therapist and she makes you feel comfortable and is very knowledgeable and good at her job. In 5 months I am almost all healed from my L4L5 fusion back surgery. Everyone there is so nice and helpful.
Just had the most amazing massage from Melissa! I’ve been experiencing neck pain and stiffness for several months and none of the massage therapists I’ve worked with at other massage clinics have been able to get the knots out. Well Melissa did and I feel like I have a new neck! Thank you for your help!
I highly recommend Renee as a massage therapist. She understands health in all totality both body and mind. She knows and supplies a great massage each time and fosters a feeling of trust and safety. Beautiful hearted as well as talented employee. Great facility.
The best PTs. The best gym. The best people come here to get better. I get better when I follow the rules and do what she says. When I don’t, I get hurt again. It’s the way it goes I guess. I highly recommend this place to anyone who needs some PT.
I’ve been receiving physical therapy for a month now on my (once frozen) shoulder and have enjoyed every minute of it. The staff is superb and the prescribed regimens are extremely effective. My go to PT is Rebecca. She is the bomb– amazing talent, great personality, & genuinely caring. Her assistant, Christina is also fantastic. After a few visits, I’ve progressed tremendously and now have full motion in my shoulder. Am so grateful to the Rausch team…highly recommend!
I went from waking up every morning in excruciating shoulder pain after hurting myself weight lifting. Thanks to Jonathan – I’m glad to say that I’m able to live a pain-free life and do the activities I love. I can’t thank Jonathan and the rest of the team enough – their knowledge, compassion, and enthusiasm really put them over the top. After multiple visits to orthopedic physicians, multiple scans, and other physical therapists, I was scared I was going to be left to live a life with one shoulder and lots of pain. Again, I can’t thank the team here enough. Thank you!
Rausch Physical Therapy was highly recommended to me by my long time physical therapist in Ventura County. I began care with Jonathan at the Rausch Laguna Nigel location and now see him at their Dana Point studio. Happily, I can report I have found the care at Rausch to be superior and highly recommend Jonathan for his expertise and caring. I have chronic muscle weakness due to my MS but after each session I walk out feeling stronger. Even with Covid protocols in place, I continue to feel comfortable receiving care at Rausch.
I came in about 2 and a half weeks before I was supposed to run my first marathon with pain in my quad. I was so nervous I wasn’t going to be able to run my race. My PT was Diana Wang. She came up with a plan to get me ready for my race. I appreciated her expertise, follow-up, and commitment to helping me reach my goal. Because of her and Rausch PT I was able to run my first marathon with no injury!
