Dr. Alia Parvez, PT

Board Certified orthopedic physical therapy specialist
Certified ergonomic assessment specialist

I believe in empowering my clients to take control of their health and wellness to prevent injuries and restore their ability to do the things they love to do. My approach to health care focuses on collaborating with my patients to create a program that is attainable and fun to incorporate into each individual’s lifestyle. Having seen the effect of work-related stresses on the population, I am passionate about improving the health and safety of people in their work environments.

Following my orthopedic residency, I began working as the physical therapist for the Dancing with the Stars Live Tour. When I was not on tour, I spent three months working at Hilo Medical Center on the Big Island of Hawaii, and worked in San Mateo at a clinic specializing in chronic pain. It was my time working with individuals with chronic pain that sparked my interest in ergonomics. Through my experience, I have found that many work-related injuries and chronic symptoms can be addressed with minor adjustments in the way that we arrange our work environments.

In my spare time, I love dancing, traveling, jogging, doing yoga, going to trivia nights, cooking (and eating!), playing board games, and watching Bay Area sports. I enjoy spending time with my family and trying out new restaurants with my friends.  I love my job, and would be honored to help you and your company improve the health and safety of your workers.
