Physical Therapy Assistant
Gary Kang is a driven practitioner who has a passion for helping people positively change their lives through improved movement. Gary graduated from Gurnick Academy of Medical Art in 2015, with distinction. Since entering the Physical Therapy field, Gary’s understanding of human movement has continued to evolve, and he takes great pride in seeing his patients meet their goals. He utilizes principles from a number of renowned movement schools of thought including Movement Links, Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization, and Institute of Physical Art. Gary’s objective with each patient is to assess the integration and dynamic interaction of each structure (muscles, joints, ligament, fascia) instead of looking at the body as separate structures. By effectively implementing this approach, Gary is able to understand and communicate why a person is in pain or why certain performance goals are not being met. Gary's skill sets includes, but not limited to, active/passive manual techniques, neuromuscular facilitatory techniques and movement analysis and correction, Graston, Rock Tape, Myofascial decompression techniques. Gary also specializes in TMJ assessment and treatment.
When he is not in the office, Gary enjoys spending time with friends and family, wine tasting, practicing Tai Chi and Chi gong, traveling, and exploring new restaurants in the Bay Area.
