Honolulu Center for Physical Therapy, LLC has undergone a lot of growth since moving from the previous Iwilei Center location to the current Nimitz Center site. Now we also have a satellite clinic in Waipahu to serve our Leeward clients. Formerly called All-Star Therapy Center, management has metamorphosed into a completely independent and physical therapist-owned facility.

Our mission is even clearer now - help improve people’s ability to function in their activities of daily living. Transform disability to ability. Since more than 90 percent of our PT clients come to us because of chronic pain, we take our pain management program very seriously.

Our center believes that the path to pain relief should bring about quick and long-lasting results. Our staff have undergone extensive training on cutting edge physical therapy techniques to establish our neck, back and joint pain program.

We’ve seen a very high success rate with our land-based PT and aquatic therapy in the common cases we see - neck and back pain, arthritis, fibromyalgia, migraine, work-related injuries, athletic injuries, post-orthopedic surgeries. This has given me a lot of satisfaction not only professionally, but personally as well, having suffered from pain myself because of gouty arthritis. I understand pain and the limitations it can impose on function.

We want injured workers to be back to work soon. We want our clients to enjoy their sports again soon. We want our clients to enjoy life and day-to-day function, free from pain.

The following are testimonials from satisfied clients:

“Going to Honolulu Center for Physical Therapy helped heal my painful knee injury where I can walk with a cane now” - F.M.

“Since starting physical therapy in June, 2005, I have gained strength and confidence in walking with the cane and riding the stationary bike. At the present time, I am exercising my right hand. I have started to do activities such as walking on the sand and swimming at the beach. Recently, with the assistance of family and friends, I was able to take a family vacation to Las Vegas. I am pleased with my progress from physical therapy” - V.Y.

But our services do not end on pain management. We are proud to have the only outpatient center in Oahu that offers the community a phase III and IV cardiac rehabilitation program. Our clients have come from as far as Guam and Micronesia.

We also have a golf fitness and golf-related injury program based on the renowned BacktoGolf concept. Prominent golfers such as VJ Singh and Arnold Palmer have used this concept to tremendously improve their game.

Honolulu Center for Physical Therapy, LLC is located at 1130 N. Nimitz Hwy., Suite C-220 (second level). If pain keeps you from doing your favorite activities, contact us at (808)550-8476.
