Hayashida physical therapy (HPT) was started in 2003 by Dr. Maury Hayashida on De La Vina St in Santa Barbara. In 2004, Dr. John Kangas joined the team to manage the Santa Barbara location and with the addition of a Goleta location in 2005, Dr. Brook Phillips joined the team.
The philosophy at HPT has, and always will, emphasize providing the highest level of care to our patients. We feel strongly that improving clinical skills and expertise is part and parcel with this philosophy therefore our entire clinical staff participates in extensive and ongoing mentor-ship and continuing education to achieve specialist certification.
HPT has consistently been voted the Reader’s Choice “Best Physical Therapy Practice” for the Santa Barbara and Goleta Area.
"Excellent in all regards: Specific analysis of musculoskeletal problems; careful range-of-motion stretching; muscle therapy for affected area/s; prescribing and illustrating specific muscle and joint exercises; thorough follow-up and follow-through with additional or reduced therapy as needed. Wow!"
