healing - health - happiness


San Tan Physical Therapy is an independent outpatient facility which is therapist owned and operated. We are able to provide the highest quality physical therapy through our personalized care and education. Nearly every patient benefits from skilled hands on interventions from their physical therapist and an open gym to work on functional activities. Treatment is designed, supervised, and implemented only by your licensed physical therapist. Our entire crew works hard to provide an exciting and friendly environment where the patient is an active participant in their recovery.

Our facility has been certified as a Preferred Therapy Provider and a PTPN member. PTPN members must meet strict credentialing requirements that exceed those of other networks and state licensing requirements. PTPN credentialing standards surpass those that such accrediting bodies as the NCQA (National Committee for Quality Assurance) require for physicians in managed care plans.


All of our therapists have achieved a high level of expertise in outpatient physical therapy clinical care.

Joal Miller: I graduated from University of Puget Sound in 1999 and was a collegiate athlete. I continue to be involved in athletics as a recreational cyclist and triathlete. My children are also involved in sports including football and gymnastics. I have spent my career working with orthopedic patients in the east valley. I continually train in manual therapy techniques and evidence based treatment plans.

Cindy Davis: Cindy graduated from the University of Southern California in 1987 and has been an incredible physical therapist for over 20 years working with orthopedic patients in a variety of settings. She was a collegiate athlete and has children that participate in football and dance. She has a wealth of knowledge and skills which are hard to equal.

Marisa Rickenbach: Marisa graduated from Northeastern University in 2004. She recently completed a rigorous 3 year manual therapy course bringing new talents to our staff and education for our patients. She has traveled the country doing physical therapy and has gained invaluable experience in what works from the various practices she has been in.

Charla Nelson: Charla graduated from University of Michigan-Flint in 2002 with a Doctorate of Physical Therapy degree. Of special note she has worked for one of the most prestigious pain management clinics in the valley and brings that experience to our facility.
