Senior Vice President of Operations
Orthopaedic and Sports Physical Therapist
Bob Baker started his interest in physical therapy as an injured athlete. The inspiration of his career was working alongside amputees that were learning how to move an amputated leg, as he tried to rehabilitate his injured calf muscle for a State Wrestling tournament. At this moment, Bob realized a life perspective, specifically that life was bigger than his problems and challenges. It was at this moment in time that Bob Baker committed himself to a career as a healer.
Shortly after completing physical therapy school at SUNY Stony Brook, NY, with Summa Cum Laude honors, Bob developed postgraduate credentials through yearlong training programs in manual therapy, sports rehabilitation and movement science. He completed a MBA at University of Chicago, and PhD in Orthopedics and Sports Science at Rocky Mountain University. His publications and research focus on injuries to runners. Bob Baker has a blended style of hands on work and functional exercise. He has strong analytical skills in assessing challenging orthopedic and sports issues.
Bob also gives back by way of coaching in the local community of Dublin and Pleasanton, CA. He is a strong advocate of body weight exercise and functional approaches that match the strength and power to the specific athletic skill.
In his personal time, he enjoys sports, photography, and spending time with his family.
