At San Luis Sports Therapy our mission is simple, to provide the best care to the best communities. We are part of a group of award winning private practice physical therapy clinics and have 8 accessible locations in San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara Counties. We boast highly educated practitioners. We are preferred providers for most insurance plans and even offer very reasonable self-pay rates.
With the help of our staff and patients, we continue to strive towards our common goal of bettering our community. We are actively involved in our communities through sponsorships and participation in a variety of events and activities.
Our team operates under a unique collaborative model where the motto “All for one and one for all!” rings true. All of the profits generated by our team are invested back into our company and the communities we serve rather than being siphoned off to owners or corporate shareholders. Team members receive annual “profit sharing” contributions in addition to the robust creation of opportunities tailored to team members’ specific goals and aspirations. We work together towards common goals for mutual benefit!
Movement for Life Clinics strive to provide wide-access to a physically active lifestyle through services efficiently delivered by able professionals in a friendly and comfortable atmosphere as part of the communities we serve.

The Movement for Life Team was awarded the 2012 Jane L. Snyder National Private Practice of the Year Award. This award is granted annually by the Private Practice Section (PPS) of the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA). It is given to recognize colleagues who have made outstanding and innovative contributions to the physical therapy profession and in support of private practice physical therapy.
This honor is the result of the cumulative efforts of Movement for Life. We are enormously proud of the people that come together every day to support, promote, and provide physical therapy services to the communities that we have the opportunity to serve. “With all these remarkable people we’ve embodied four key points in our vision – to recruit, retain, and reward the best people; to provide cutting edge service; to expand and grow our people, our company, our services, and our facilities; and to do it all through efficient and effective communication and teamwork,” said Jim Glinn, Jr., founder of Team Movement for Life, as he accepted the award.
“The bar for community service was set very high by Dr. Jane Snyder; and the Movement for Life clinics are active members of their communities. They partner with local high schools to provide athletic training services to their students. They’re involved in community outreach programs and support many charitable organizations through community fundraising events,” said the award presenter.
At San Luis Physical Therapy, Movement for Life is everything we do. Improving and enhancing the lives of our team and the communities we serve. We believe that we can change more lives together than we can alone. We love what we do. We love helping people. We love providing Movement for Life.
"I have definitely noticed a difference in my body with training and recovery and performance Before starting physical therapy with Colleen Russell I definitely had a lot of asymmetries in my body For example, my left quad was more than 5 cm smaller than my right side As of Feb 8, there is only a 1 cm difference That is one of the most obvious and visible physical changes, but I have also noticed positive things in training like the ability to maintain my hip position when sprinting and jumping My hips were really weak when I started PT with Colleen and that has been one area of focus in therapy sessions My hips feel a lot stronger and I am able to maintain stronger, more powerful positions during long and hard workouts Instead of fatiguing, I am able to complete the workouts maintaining good form Which is really important being a multievent athlete, because we spend long hours practicing and on competition days sometimes up to six hours, and the ability to maintain good physical form throughout a workout or competition is really important for seeing the best results possible I feel like I can last through an entire tough work out without certain muscle groups fatiguing, because we have been working to make sure everything is strong and stays strong"~ Sharon Day, Olympic Athlete
