Ricky joined the ProSport team as a physical therapist in 2019. He earned his undergraduate degree in Athletic Training from San Diego State University in 2015 and became a certified athletic trainer. After graduation, he worked as an assistant athletic trainer for San Diego Mesa College up until he was admitted to graduate school for physical therapy. In 2018, he graduated with a Doctorate in physical therapy from the University of St. Augustine for Health Sciences and obtained his first physical therapy job here at ProSport.
Ricky first became interested in physical therapy after suffering multiple injuries as a student-athlete in high school and junior college. He was able to return to the sports and activities he wanted thanks to many physical therapists. Ricky has experience in a variety of settings, which include nursing homes, pediatric facilities, college and pro sports, but his passion has always remained in orthopedic rehabilitation and helping people stay active.
In Ricky’s free time, he enjoys playing recreational sports, going to the beach, and hanging with friends and family.
