Dr. Art Van Leuven, PT, DPT, ATC, Founder

Art received his Doctorate of Physical Therapy degree from the number one ranked physical therapy school in the nation, the University of Southern California. He has worked as a physical therapist in a number of settings – outpatient orthopedic, home health care, and collegiate sports. Art holds dual credentials as a Physical Therapist and certified Athletic Trainer. He obtained his Bachelor of Science degree in Athletic Training from Chapman University, where he also was a member of the men’s basketball team. Several basketball injuries requiring rehab and surgery ultimately led Art on his path to Athletic Training and, finally, Physical Therapy. Art was raised in the Santa Ynez Valley, where he currently resides with his beautiful wife, four young children, and very energetic puppy!
