Christine Ely Physical Therapy Services



Christine Ely Physical Therapy Services has been a fixture in the community of Half Moon Bay since 1996.

We have established a reputation for high-quality service and a willingness to accommodate the personal needs of our clientele. Our mission is to go beyond the typical services offered by other physical therapy centers to help patients get better quicker.

After 12 weeks we are finally ready to see you again for hands on Physical Therapy. We are opening on Monday, June 1st.

The experience will be a little different, due to extensive pre session screening, but the knowledgeable care of our Physical Therapists will be the same.

See below for pre session screening:

Policies and Procedures during the SAR CoV-2 Pandemic

  • Everyone must sanitize their hands upon entering, that includes patients and therapists.
  • Everyone must have their temperature taken. The session is cancelled it the temperature is 100 or above.
  • Both patient and therapist are responsible for their own mask and have to wear them during the encounter.
  • Any used piece of equipment needs to be wiped down with disinfectant solution.
  • It is recommended to remove clothing and to shower on your return home.

Welcome back, we missed you.

Our objectives are accomplished by:

  • Adopting a unique approach to rehabilitation of patients through hourly one on one sessions, exclusively with a physical therapist.
  • Using an eclectic approach of manual therapy to prepare the injured tissue for strengthening and stretching exercises.
  • Establishing a customized home exercise program at the first visit to give the patient a part in his/her own rehabilitation.

We offer orthopedic therapy addressing various conditions relating to overuse, trauma, surgery, accidents, and sports-related injuries. In addition, we are specialized in Golf training and Wellness programs, Pilates-type core strengthening, and Rosen work (relaxes muscle tension and chronic holding).
