Dr. Brendon Wei, Doctor of Physical Therapy, received his Bachelor of Science in Biological Sciences with a Minor in Psychology from the University of Southern California (USC) in 2017. He later returned to USC, where he received his Doctorate degree in Physical Therapy in 2021. Prior to beginning PT school, Brendon spent his time shadowing different physical therapists to learn as much as he could about patient-care while he applied to school, and was eventually hired by one of the therapists to work as a physical therapy aide until he moved onto become a student physical therapist.
During his time in physical therapy school, Brendon spent the majority of his clinical rotations in various outpatient settings. While he was exposed to working with the neurologic and orthopedic populations, it was a strong focus in orthopedics that led Brendon to working with individuals of all ages with varying conditions. Brendon also has experience in male pelvic health physical therapy, where he worked with individuals with pelvic pain as well as individuals seeking care post-prostatectomy.
Brendon is currently a member of the American Physical Therapy Association and aims to provide the best possible care by treating the body as a collective whole, rather than isolated joints. Brendon believes that successful rehabilitation often involves a combination of manual therapy to address physical impairments, exercise to address strength/flexibility/mobility deficits, and neuromuscular re-education to re-learn movement patterns that further aggravate one’s condition.
