Dr. Tom Padilla - Founder of DPT


A Doctor of Physical Therapy, strength specialist, author, and founder of ‘The Doctors of Physical Therapy’ (DPT).

Before becoming a physical therapist, Dr. Tom spent years as a personal trainer. He is passionate about merging the worlds of rehabilitation, and ‘fitness & wellness’ to help people return to living their best lives. This is what influenced his decision to go to the #1 ranked Physical Therapy school in the US, The University of Southern California, where he received awards for The Order of the Golden Cane, and the Order of Arete. He has his sights set on improving the standard of care that people can expect, and helping them return to active, meaningful lives.

Dr. Tom has spent years perfecting the treatment techniques offered by DPT. He now works extensively with his team, passing on these treatment techniques, and ensuring that DPT remains a leader in quality physical therapy. DPT has become the ‘go-to’ clinic in Arizona for people aged 30+ who are wanting to get back to active lifestyles.

Dr. Tom and his wife, Claire are both Arizona transplants, and enjoy getting out to see the different Arizona landscapes.
