Dr. Kylie Rowe PT
For over 30 years, I have worked with adults and children with movement and balance limitations at home, work, school and in sports activities that are a result of falls, sports or work injuries, car accidents, special abilities, illness and just plain old wear and tear.
In my practice, I bring much-needed high quality, one on one experienced physical therapy services within the city of San Francisco. I am committed to working with the whole person seeing them through their unique situations as their personal Physical Therapist. My professional approach to evaluation is holistic and individualized, utilizing well researched treatment strategies to achieve movement goals. My areas of expertise include but are not limited to: working with people diagnosed with chronic pain, neck and back injuries, balance issues, shoulder, hip and knee joint problems (including post surgical recovery) and arthritic conditions.
Born and raised in Australia, I completed my Bachelor of Applied Science in Physiotherapy from the University of Sydney in 1986. Adventure, family and work brought me to the US where my professional work and education has continued over the years. Upon the completion of my Doctorate of Physical Therapy at the University of South Dakota in 2014, I was offered a position as a professor of Physical Therapy at the University of the Pacific in Stockton, CA. While there, I ran the University based outpatient clinic in addition to instructing students in advanced clinical problems, therapeutic exercise, physical therapy modalities and patient care. Living Healthy Physical Therapy is the realization of a dream to facilitate the physical wellbeing of individuals within our community…a dream inspired by a long career of treating, educating and serving.

Jessica Tieu, PT Aide
I am a recent college graduate from San Francisco State University with a Bachelors of Science in Biology concentrating Physiology. I was born and raised in the Bay Area. At a very young age, I found a passion in health care and in restoring people's physical health.
My next goal is to attend a Doctorate Physical Therapy program to become a physical therapist in the near future. I wish to open my own private clinic that would include physical therapy and personal training. My main goal is to help rehabilitate injuries, specifically cardiovascular and pulmonary rehabilitation and for age-related conditions. Through physical therapy, I wish to guide patients to improve their quality of life by restoring their physical health and helping them meet their individual physical goals.
In my free time, I enjoy traveling, exploring new places and also trying new food.
