The Outpatient Physical Therapy Faculty Practice offers expert physical therapy consultations, evaluations, and interventions to patients of all ages for musculoskeletal and neuromusculoskeletal problems impacting function. Our providers are certified specialists in orthopedics, sports, neurology, vestibular disorders, and geriatrics. Many of our providers specialize in working with patients with musculoskeletal injuries of the extremities, spine problems, chronic pain, hemophilia, injured athletes, injured workers, and patients with neurological insults and degenerative conditions. Practice providers also perform ergonomic evaluations at the work site. All providers adhere to the Ethical Code of Conduct and Standards of Practice of the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) and to UCSF Medical Staff bylaws, and conform to the scope of practice and licensure laws and regulations for physical therapy practice in California.
Patients may access adult and pediatric therapy services by referral from another health provider (usually a physician).

In each therapy discipline, we provide consultation, evaluation, intervention and patient/family education to resolve identified impairments and to maximize patients' physical function. The range of services provided includes consultation, patient evaluation, treatment planning, and physical therapy interventions.
If the initial evaluation findings are consistent with the pre-existing or referring diagnosis, treatment goals are established and a treatment plan is designed and initiated with the consent of the patient. If not, the therapist will consult the referring physician prior to initiating therapy. Achievement of goals is the primary method utilized by therapists to assess effectiveness of therapeutic intervention.
