Kelly offers performance-based physical therapy at his gym, San Francisco Crossfit. His progressive therapeutic approach uniquely utilizes Crossfit-based strength and conditioning rehabilitation and cutting-edge Australian-based manual therapy to achieve superior athletic and functional outcomes. His patients and athletes recover more quickly, enjoy greater fitness, and are empowered to manage and avoid future orthopedic injury and dysfunction.
Because Kelly’s practice is performance based, many world-class athletes and coaches utilize his physical therapy services to resolving nagging training limitations like poor motor control, limited joint range of motion, and soft tissue dysfunction.
Kelly’s clients have included Olympic gold-medalists, Tour de France cyclists, world and national record holding Olympic Lifting and Power athletes, Crossfit Games medalists, ballet dancers, elite military personnel, and competitive age-division athletes. Kelly believes that elite athletic performance and sound orthopedic function are one and the same.
Although in-person physical therapy appointments are preferred, phone consultations (including international calls via Skype) with Kelly Starrett are available for those who live out of the area or are otherwise unable to make it to San Francisco CrosSFit. These 50-minute phone consultations can be used to discuss current orthopedic injuries, your current plan of care, your long-term recovery planning, or just for general advice.
Kelly specializes in world-class coaching for athletes who are recovering from an injury or with unique orthopedic needs. During periods of injury or after surgery, there is no need to stop training. On the contrary, Kelly views these times of athletic transition as genuine opportunities to further develop areas of weakness, to facilitate healing processes, and continue to advance athletic progress. Additionally, Kelly develops comprehensive programs for athletes with chronic orthopedic dysfunction (herniated discs, joint replacement, back pain, shoulder impingment, knee pain, patella dysfunction, etc.). Kelly is able to modify, substitute, and scale our athletic programming to allow for maximal results while maintaining and enhancing pain free function.
