Posture to the People is a physical therapy practice and Certified Postural Restoration Center.
Our mission is to promote the best quality of life possible for our patients, by empowering ourselves in a collaborative, cooperative work environment.
We believe that while physical therapy is a process, patients should never feel like they are being processed. You will always be treated one-on-one by a licensed physical therapist.
If you have been treated with physical therapy before you will find our approach very different. Postural Restoration systematically and objectively gets to the root of patterns that cause pain and discomfort. There is simply no other physical therapy approach that is as comprehensive. And the best part is: you will learn to treat yourself.
Whether you have recently been injured or have suffered for years and tried everything, you can find a new level of relief and control over your symptoms from this unique method of treatment.

About Ivan Rott, PT
Ivan Rott is a physical therapist (and certified strength and conditioning specialist through the NCSA). He received his diplomas from Linfield College and Cal State University at Northridge. Ivan has completed a post-graduate mentorship in manual therapy and a number of continuing education courses; he has a goal of attaining his Postural Restoration certification in the near future.
Ivan is a critical thinker with a passion for the science of human movement and helping people. He found the Postural Restoration method while working through his own injury when traditional treatments, including surgery, did not provide significant improvement. This experience has greatly impacted Ivan’s approach to helping his patients find the way to less pain, better movement and getting back to the activities they love.
When he’s not working, Ivan enjoys hiking with his wife, triathlons, yoga, reading and a good cup of coffee.
