SLST provides certified athletic trainers (ATCs) to 9 local high schools on the Central Coast. In cooperation with team physicians, our ATCs are on-site daily to provide care to over 4,500 athletes. In addition, our ATC staff extends into the industrial setting: providing pre-employment screens, post-offer pre-employment physical function screens, return to work screens, and ergonomic work-site training as well as assists with Cal Poly Club Sports teams and other athletic events within the county.
SLST’s involvement in the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life has grown throughout the years. We have teams that have hosted soup Fridays, community barbecues and breakfasts, and dunk tank fundraisers to support the fight against cancer. Our teams walk together at the local events and strive to have at least one person walking during the entire 24 hour walk.
SLST supports the Arthritis Foundation. A Walk to Cure Arthritis is the Arthritis Foundation’s annual community fundraising 5K walk event. The funds raised from the 5K support our nonprofit mission and research aimed at finding a cure for arthritis, America’s leading cause of disability. Whether you have a family member or loved one who suffers from arthritis, or are simply looking for a walking or running event for charity, the Walk to Cure Arthritis is a great way to get moving in support of a worthwhile cause!
SLST supports Project Surf Camp. PSC is a charitable and educational, nonprofit organization designed specifically for individuals with special needs. While great strides have been made in recent years to increase access to goods and services for special needs individuals, opportunities for leisure or recreational activities are often still difficult to access. Sometimes we forget, especially living on the coast, that not everyone has experienced the ocean. One group in particular that has been deprived of such a privilege is those persons with disabilities. Our hope is to introduce people to the water who would otherwise never receive such an opportunity.
SLST supports the American Heart Association by fundraising and attending the annual Heart Walk in Avila Beach. This event is designed to promote physical activity, community involvement and heart-healthy living, the Heart Walk creates an environment that's fun and rewarding for the entire family. Join our team today!

"I want to take the opportunity to say I have enjoyed being assigned to Karma for physical therapy for the knee injury I came in with last monthI feel Karma was the perfect fit and is a wonderful therapist I am a bicyclist and she is so in tune to my need to exercise on a regular basisShe gave me a set of exercises and a homework sheet to come home with and I followed them to the letterEach time we meet she would ask me questions and I would answer them Once I was able to ride my bicycle she gave me guidelines and I followed themThen she gave me a grade percentage so I could ride and add a bit of a challengeOne day I went too many miles and over did it because I felt strong enough, but in reality, I actually pushed myself a bit farther than I should have, but she did not beat me up, she said it was okay just to back off a bit since I was still healingI aggravated my knee and failed to ice like I should have That was my faultI am thankful and feel blessed that she can explain a plan so simple and made this transition and recovery period so much better I still have a couple of more sessions with Karma, but wanted to make sure I got a chance to let you know she is an awesome physical therapistAustin has been working with me as well and going through my exercise routine every time I go into treatment He watches as I do the exercises and won't let me cheatIf I'm not doing something correctly, he is there to make sure I correct the position of the exercise so that it works as intendedThere are days I whine, but he is always the professionalWhat a great team I was paired with between Karma and Austin this has been a great recovery for me As always I think San Luis Sports Therapy is one of the best places to recovery from an injury and recommend your facility when asked"~ Monica
