Empower Physical Therapy announces the acquisition of ProActive Physical Therapy & Sports Medicine, located in San Diego.

The practice was established with a single clinic in 2006 by founders Jack Pentlarge and Amyn Valji, and has since grown to six locations across the San Diego and North County metropolitan area.

ProActive Physical Therapy & Sports Medicine provides outpatient physical therapy services using a hands-on, individualized approach. These personalized treatments assist patients recovering from a range of health issues including pain, vestibular problems, joint issues, post-operative conditions, and sports and work-related injuries. ProActive currently operates locations in Carlsbad, Vista, Mission Valley, Rancho Bernardo, Carmel Valley, and National City.

“ProActive Physical Therapy & Sports Medicine has an outstanding reputation in its local communities for providing exceptional care to patients, which makes the ProActive Physical Therapy team an incredible addition to the Empower Physical Therapy family. We look forward to supporting ProActive’s focus on providing high quality, patient-centered care, which is central to Empower’s mission, as we continue expansion efforts in its core markets.”

— Empower Physical Therapy CEO & Physical Therapist Steve DiPaola

“It’s an exciting time to partner with Empower to promote the private practice sector of our physical therapy profession. We share the same philosophies when it comes to patient experience, always aiming to provide world-class quality care and services for our patients here in San Diego County.

“We joined a family who will allow us all to continue improving our patient care, service, and systems. Our primary goal is to grow our practice throughout San Diego, so we can provide high-touch care to more communities. Empower is the perfect partner to help us achieve this goal.”

— Jack Pentlarge and Amyn Valji, speaking for the entire ProActive family

Jack and Amyn will continue to serve as practice leaders in their new roles as Regional Directors of Operations.

With the addition of ProActive Physical Therapy & Sports Medicine, Empower Physical Therapy now operates 43 clinics across Arizona, California, Louisiana, and Texas.
