Jake Sarmiento

“As a Physical Therapist, my goal is to help inspire and motivate others to reach potentials that were never imaginable. Through the incorporation of the biopsychosocial model and treatment the individual as a whole, each patient has a treatment plan developed to meet their specific needs. I strive to utilize current evidence base practice to shape my treatment philosophy to ensure my patients are receiving the best standard of care. My life's passion has always been health and fitness, and I look forward to sharing my knowledge and energy with the world.”

Jake's interest in the medical field began as a child who became interested in anatomy and physiology to help improve his performance in sports. As Jake grew older, his passion for health and fitness continued and he soon realized his love for injury prevention, rehabilitation, and health education while in high school. His passion for soccer allowed him to play collegiately and it was at Chapman University that he witnessed firsthand, the power of leadership in team training and elite exercise programs while a member of the men's soccer team. Jake studied and graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Health Sciences and eventually returned to pursue his Doctorate of Physical Therapy. While at Chapman, Jake participated in clinical rotations with patient populations that included: high-level athletes, pediatric, post-surgical, neurological, and orthopedic pathologies. He is excited to share his love for health and fitness with all patients, no matter their situation.

Jake has previous experience working with professional baseball, soccer, and football players as well as weekend warriors alike. He applies up-to-date evidence concepts to create the most effective plans for his patients. He utilizes one on one treatment sessions, to devote the utmost care to each of his patients. He also is passionate about incorporating concepts of living through nutrition, mobility and mental health wellness and believes movement is essential to optimal health and is possible for every type of patient. He will find a way to safely get you back to what you love most, whatever that may be. Jake is a Southern California native who loves to hike, play soccer, and travel.
