Physical therapy isn’t just about rehabilitation.
It’s about understanding the tipping point between health and injury, and understanding the biomechanics of movement patterns that allow the body to participate in a balanced life. It’s about individualized care to help you achieve your goals-whether you are returning from an injury or wanting to avoid one all together.
An evidence-based blend of manual therapy, functional training and exercise.

I have been dealing with frighteningly loose ligaments in my shoulders for most of my life. I am a certified yoga instructor, avid runner, and soccer player, and the threat of a dislocated shoulder does not go well with my active lifestyle.
I got in touch with Nicole Haas a few months back when my shoulders dislocating was becoming especially problematic in my daily life. Nicole was in Costa Rica for a yoga teacher training but she took the time to video chat with me to understand the mechanics of my shoulder problem and to show me some exercises that I should be doing everyday. I am beyond grateful for Nicole’s advice and confidence in the possibility of rehabing my shoulders- they have stayed in their sockets better than ever before since we talked about new exercises. She is truly passionate about her patients and about the awesomeness of the human body! Thank you Nicole!—Amy B
I absolutely love working with Nicole! I had some IT band issues and she really took the time to analyze the root of my issue and teach me the exercises I needed to get back on track. Nicole really provides the whole picture of care and is realistic about goals for rehab for both the patient and what she can do. I also always felt very mentally supported by her. I remember a freak out moment, when I told her I was scared I would never be able to run the same again. Nicole talked me off the ledge, and told me I would make it through. And I did…all because of her! I would highly recommend Nicole to anyone needing PT, but especially runners and athletes. She is the best and I will continue to see her as long as she is around!—Alex H
I can’t recommend Nicole any higher! She always took the time to get to the root of my pain. My first visit, she did a full assessment from my head to my toes to try and figure out what was truly causing my pain. I didn’t see her for an injury – it was more of an ongoing pain that Nicole helped alleviate. Not only that but she was able to help me continue with barre fitness classes that I enjoy by suggesting appropriate modifications. Nicole is extremely knowledgeable and approachable as well. I would recommend (and have done) her services to anyone needing an excellent PT!—Alyssa P
Nicole helped me in San Francisco. She was incredibly thorough, answered all my questions, and got me back into tip-top shape. I highly recommend her.—Kevin G
Nicole is awesome. In a marketplace full of PTs I go back to her every time. I know that she’ll be able to quickly figure out what’s going on and prescribe the best course of action to fix me. I’ve always seen quick turn arounds for whatever issue I’m having. Her command of human biomechanics and her experience working with athletes is on another level. She’s the best in the business.—Matt H
I have to admit that this is my very first review. I’ve been using others as a reference for years, but never found the need to sign up and write a review until now.
Nicole Haas is one of the best Physical Therapists I’ve come across, and I’ve met a lot of PTs (I play sports competitively, and also have a roommate who is a PT). She is incredibly observant, so she is able to figure out what’s wrong with you just by watching you move. On top of that, she’s great at explaining to you what’s going on in your body so that you actually understand it.
I’ve had chronic knee problems for years, but with Nicole’s help, I’ve not only recovered, but I haven’t had a relapse ever since. She worked with me intensely to fix up my knee for my competition, and she helped me see that my poor body mechanics were what was causing recurring inflammation & irritation in my knees. She gave me exercises to help fix the instability in my glutes and hips when I walk, run, bike, etc.
I don’t know what I would’ve done without her. I’ve seen and talked to a lot of people about my chronic injuries, and there hasn’t been anyone else who could adequately explain not only what was wrong, but what I needed to change in my everyday life in order to fix it.—Ness F
