John Farahmand, DPT, OCS, graduated from the University of California at Los Angeles with degrees in Psychobiology and Business Administration before pursuing his Doctorate in physical Therapy at the University of Southern California.
He founded Balance Physical Therapy and Human Performance Center, Inc. on June 3rd 2002 with a particular vision in mind: To provide the most exemplary physical therapy services available anywhere. John became interested in physical therapy during college after suffering a severe back injury. While going through an arduous regime of rehabilitation and experiencing all of the personal frustration that accompanies most serious injuries, John decided to commit his professional career to caring for patients in need of specialized outpatient physical therapy services.
Today, John is proud to lead a highly professional organization that promises its patients the highest standards of care in manual therapy, therapeutic exercise, patient education and results. Education and specialized training are the cornerstones of his practice. John is one of the few Board Certified Orthopedic clinical specialists in the country, and he and his staff deliver the most highly skilled physical therapy services available anywhere. His unique operations system allows Balance Physical Therapy to exist as something larger than itself, something special, something unique, dynamic, and ever changing to meet the needs of its community. John and his staff are able to effectively partner with their patients to ensure a full functional recovery and a return to an active lifestyle.
As someone who grew up in the Salinas Valley, attended local schools, and has strong ties to this wonderful community, John is committed to hiring and maintaining a staff of only the most qualified professionals. In addition to providing highly skilled manual therapy and prescribed therapeutic exercise, John and his staff also provide their patients with the tools necessary to achieve and maintain an attitude that will not allow them to fail. John promises that you will not find a more patient-focused, result-oriented group of rehabilitation professionals anywhere, and he looks forward to seeing you in the clinic!
“I can’t say enough good things about John Farahmand and Balance Physical Therapy! John and his staff are very friendly and professional. He explained things to me in a way that was easy to understand and I feel that I know my body so much better now, as a result of my physical therapy. As both a teaching and competitive tennis pro, my body experiences a lot of wear and tear. John has helped me maintain a level of health necessary to continue participating in this sport which I have played for over 40 years. Thank you, John!” – Shelly
