Conor Uhlir, PT, DPT

Conor was born and raised in La Canada, just down the 210 freeway. He grew up playing all manner of sports (football, baseball, soccer, basketball), taking part in the Boy Scouts (earning his Eagle Scout Award), and getting involved in student government as part of Youth and Government. He attended St. Francis High School where he continued playing sports and was a part of multiple musicals in his time there. He was raised in a USC/UCLA split household but decided he liked cardinal and gold better than baby blue and gold and attended USC where he earned his bachelor’s degree in Health Promotion and Disease Prevention. He continued on at USC to earn his Doctorate of Physical Therapy (DPT). 

Throughout his life, Conor has always been very involved in health care, whether helping his mom with her work as a nurse, volunteering in physician’s and physical therapists’ offices, or due to his numerous injuries from all his endeavors. While working through his undergraduate education, he became very involved in sports medicine for USC athletics during which time he was named the head student trainer for the football and women’s soccer teams. It was here where he first discovered the field of physical therapy and saw the potential to not only help people heal but also to prevent injuries. While earning his DPT and continuing after, he has had the great fortune to work with and learn from a great variety of patients from professional athletes (NFL, NBA, PGA, AVP, WSL) to those with neurological and balance disorders.

Outside of the office, Conor greatly enjoys several outdoor activities such as surfing, snowboarding, hiking, camping, and SCUBA diving. He is also an avid runner having completed the Los Angeles and San Francisco marathons and multiple Olympic length triathalons.
