About Us

Theresa T. Nguyen, MPT

Theresa Nguyen, MPT/Owner

A background in dance and competitive gymnastics cultivated Theresa Nguyen's passion for sports medicine. At the age of 13, she knew she wanted to become a physical therapist and help injured athletes. She graduated Cum Laude honors from Chapman University in 1996 with a B.S. in Movement and Exercise Physiology. In 1999, she received a Master’s degree in Physical Therapy from Western University of Health Sciences, Pomona. Her post-graduate education includes Pilates instructor training and advanced study of the shoulder, pelvis and knee. Recreationally, Theresa still does gymnastics and performs aerial silk and hoop locally in Santa Clarita.

Theresa has lectured on Pilates-based rehabilitation to orthopedic surgeons and published an article called “Prevention of Injuries in Pilates.” After working as the director of four physical therapy clinics, she opened her private practice, Motion Pros Physical Therapy & Pilates.

"My mission is to optimize wellness through personalized, one-on-one care. I care about my client's state of mind as much as their physical well-being."
