Fortanasce & Associates has been “Committed to Excellence in Patient Care” since we first opened our doors in 1981. Our 11,000 square foot Arcadia facility and 3,000 square foot South Pasadena facility are fully equipped with state-of-the-art rehabilitation, strength, cardiovascular, balance and testing equipment to facilitate and document functional performance improvements for all clients.

The team at Fortanasce & Associates has provided training and education in rehabilitation, evaluation and prevention of athletic injuries to athletes from Major League Baseball, the National Football League, United States Figure Skating, the United States Olympic Committee and, since 2009, the athletes, coaches and team physicians of China's National Training Center in Beijing. Our expert clinicians teach at leading physical therapy programs throughout Southern California.

In 2000 Fortanasce & Associates became the first private practice in the nation to establish an APTA accredited Orthopaedic Residency Program. Our clinics also serve as the first international internship/residency clinics for the rehabilitation specialists of China’s Provincial and National Training Centers as well as rehabilitation centers for some of their most elite athletes. When choosing where you will do your physical therapy, occupational therapy or fitness/wellness program, look to the clinics professional and Olympic athletes as well as over 100 physicians and their families have received their care.

Look to the best! Look to Fortanasce & Associates.
