Luc Nguyen PT, DPT, OCS
Luc is a physical therapist and founder of Specialized PT Solutions. Luc earned his Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology from San Jose State University in 2003 and his Doctorate of Physical Therapy from Chapman University in 2006. Following completion of his schooling, he came home to San Jose to be closer to family and begin his career. During this time, his knowledge and leadership allowed him to serve as clinic director and help thousands of people with various orthopedic conditions. His experience with injuries and his personal recovery from two separate anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstructive surgeries gave him valuable insight to the recovery process, both emotionally and physically.
Luc has spent his entire career in the local bay area, which has allowed him to become familiar with a vast number of local physicians and surgeons. In 2008, Luc completed the Folsom Physical Therapy Long-Term Orthopedic Physical Therapy Course, a year-long intensive manual therapy course, which was instrumental in his professional development and treatment of spine disorders. In 2009, he was certified by the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) as an Orthopedic Clinical Specialist (OCS). As an orthopedic specialist, Luc has demonstrated knowledge, skill, and experience exceeding that of a general physical therapist in the orthopedic setting. He strives to use this knowledge to help people continue to live active lives. He continues to enjoy and participate in golf, pick-up basketball, hiking, camping and fly-fishing.
