Stanley Tran, D.P.T.

Stanley Tran has been practicing physical therapy for three years. He received his Bachelor of Science degree in Exercise Physiology at California State University, Chico in 2009. After profound inspiration from his own physical therapist, he embarked on his own journey to earn a degree in physical therapy. Stanley earned his Doctorate of Physical Therapy from the University of Saint Augustine for Health Sciences, San Marcos in 2014.

He has served as the strength and conditioning intern for several CSU, Chico collegiate sports teams including women’s volleyball, basketball, and softball teams as well as the men’s rugby club.

In addition to practicing current, evidence-based physical therapy, Stanley regularly expands his foundation of clinical knowledge with continuing education and certification programs. With the constant evolution of systematic research, Stanley believes strongly in maintaining up-to-date training and incorporating current best clinical practices into his individualized patient treatment programs.
