Recovery & Rehabilitation


In the world of physical therapy, it’s standard to spend a short amount of time at the start of your session with a Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) who will assess and prescribe treatment and the rest of your time is spent with an assistant or aide who then carries out the prescribed treatment of corrective exercises. This is not the experience at NAKOA. As part of our commitment to an unparalleled level of service, NAKOA’s unique treatment approach does not involve any assistants or aids at all. Clients spend their entire session with one of our Doctors, giving them the highest level of expertise and care throughout the entire session. This, we have found, yields a far superior success rate as well as customer experience. Our therapists are able to offer more complex and hands-on treatment plans utilizing a variety of manual therapy and neuromuscular techniques in addition to corrective exercises. Furthermore, our collaborative team of Performance Coaches adds an additional layer of education and experience to our therapist training, giving them a toolbox of exercise prescription to better bridge the gap between rehabilitation and returning to regular exercise and athletics.

For those with plans we do not accept we are able to provide a Superbill so that you can get reimbursed from your insurance company directly.

The culture of Nakoa is amazing... They instill a belief of personal betterment through consistent hard work, a positive workout environment, and their deep desire to help others. Their passion and style reverberate through their team members and their clients. Nakoa to me is more than a gym, it’s a lifestyle.

Going to NAKOA actually saved my life. I broke my neck and back surfing and was told the only reason I was alive is because I was in good shape and strong. When I heard that, I knew it was thanks to my training at Nakoa. After my neck surgery, there was no doubt in my mind that my physical therapy would be with NAKOA.
