  • Dr. Erin Roos, DPT
    Physical Therapist

    Erin’s interest in physical therapy started after a hip injury from soccer during her middle school years. She was impressed with the knowledge her physical therapist had regarding the human body and with how he had gotten her back to soccer and running. She knew she wanted a career in helping others get back to the things they love doing. Erin attended California State University, Fullerton where she earned her Bachelor’s of Science in Kinesiology while running on scholarship for both the cross-country and track and field teams. She then earned her Doctorate of Physical Therapy from Chapman University in 2015. Since then, Erin has been working in the outpatient orthopedic setting, the same setting she received PT in when she was hurt years ago. Erin strongly believes in one-on-one time between physical therapists and their patients. She feels that each patient deserves the full attention of their therapist and the chance to work together toward their goals. She sees tremendous value in working with patients in their homes, at work, or on the field as there are times where the difficulties in these settings cannot be replicated in a clinic. When Erin is not treating patients, she is teaching swing dancing in San Diego, competing in swing dance competitions with her husband, Derrick, or spending quality time with her cat, Mylo, on the couch.
