Get to Know Kevin
Just like you, I was first introduced to the world of physical therapy as a patient. I hurt my knee playing volleyball, and after surgery I was sent to physical therapy. I had a rad physical therapist named Kay who got me back to playing the sport I loved, and I was blessed to finish my volleyball career at Cal Baptist University—where we won two National Championship titles—without major injuries. After seeing how Kay guided me through recovery, I decided that I wanted to become a physical therapist so I could help other people get better and get back to doing what they love. I graduated from physical therapy school at Nova Southeastern University, where I was able to develop advanced knowledge in sports biomechanics and manual physical therapy care.
In 2003 I began my professional career as a licensed physical therapist at a clinic in Newport Beach. There, I was blessed with many opportunities to care for high-level athletes from a variety of professional sports, including working with the USA Gymnastics Team and AVP Pro Tour. Three years later, my wife Chrissy and I decided to take a leap of faith and open our own clinic in Laguna Niguel.
Since our first day on March 5, 2006, we could tell that Rausch Physical Therapy & Sports Performance was going to be a special place in the world of physical therapy. Our clinic has taken the lead by not only offering the most thorough and specific rehabilitation programs in the field, but also a Performance Lab boasting the kind of technology you can typically only access as a professional athlete.
I take great pride in the care of every single patient I get the opportunity to treat. Your concerns and goals are my top priority. I enjoy finding the cause of your issue, whatever that may be, and using my expertise to offer you relief and recovery. There’s a lot that goes into getting someone better, and I am not a believer in the “quick fix” idea. The human body is changed by work and corrective stress; I’m here to strengthen your total body health. See you on the table!
