Brian Carson, PT, MPT

Orthopedic Physical Therapist

Brian was born in the San Fernando Valley and raised right here in Thousand Oaks. He is the second youngest of eight siblings most of whom still reside in the Conejo Valley. He has always been passionate about sports and very active in just about anything he could get involved in (baseball, basketball, football, golf, cycling, triathlon, Olympic weight lifting and strength training).

Brian began his college career in the College of Engineering at University of California, Santa Barbara. Drawing from his desire to solve complex problems and develop unique solutions he began studying mechanical engineering. With time it became apparent that he was missing the human connection and his passion for helping others lead him to a pre-med degree in biological sciences. Once he began on the track towards studying physical therapy there was no question that this was the path he was meant to travel. He finished his Master of Physical Therapy degree from California State University Northridge in 2009, and has been working with a wide array of patients in all aspects of outpatient orthopedic physical therapy here in the Conejo Valley for over ten years.

Brian believes strongly that continued education and constant growth through learning, are essential to be a successful physical therapist that can seamlessly progress patients from evaluation to return to sport/activity. Through a comprehensive evaluation, goal focused manual therapy, neuromuscular re-education and corrective exercises with clear communication and continuous re-evaluation he has been very successful at helping patients of all abilities reach and exceed their goals. He has studied under some of the industry’s best teachers and mentors throughout the years and is currently studying for his board certification as an orthopedic clinical specialist through the APTA.

Some of his most fond memories are from youth sports and outdoor activities he was involved in throughout our area.  His experiences in our community have helped him decide to plant roots here as an adult and raise his four children on the same streets he grew up on. When he’s not helping his patient’s reach their goals he is involved in youth coaching and being hands on with his daughter and three young son’s sports teams.
