Nelson Guiang, PT, DPT

Clinical Director & Physical Therapist

Nelson found out about Physical Therapy when he volunteered at the Los Angeles County + USC hospital in the summer of 2004. There he found out what Physical Therapy is all about and completely fell in love with the idea of helping people get back to their life while getting to use the various equipment in the gym.

Nelson received his Bachelor’s in Kinesiology with emphasis in exercise science from Long Beach State in 2011. He went on to get his Doctor of Physical Therapy degree at Chapman University in 2015. Nelson completed clinical affiliations with various orthopedic clinics in Southern California as well as experience with working with people with cancer during his affiliation at City of Hope. He did his graduate research on studying the effects of posture-cueing garments on healthy people and hopes that it can be used in the future to help people with their low back discomfort. During his free time, Nelson enjoys spending time with his family, trying new food, snowboarding, and cycling.
