The Oakland Physical Therapy Difference

Oakland Physical Therapy, P.C. was established in 1981 by physical therapists Frank and Kristie Kava. The practice was one of the first private practices specializing in Orthopedic Physical Therapy. Oakland Physical Therapy, P.C. has rehabilitated thousands of patients with orthopedic diagnoses ranging from joint sprains, muscle injuries, and post-fracture care to post-surgical rehabilitation of orthopedic conditions. Many patients are treated for neck and back pain as well as pain in all of the extremity joints. Our primary goal is to restore pain-free normal function that will allow you to return to the activities you love to do. At Oakland Physical Therapy our physical therapists have advanced training in orthopedic manual therapy and several movement methods involving Stott Pilates, The Gyrotonic® and Gyrokinesis® exercise methods and effective therapeutic exercise programs. The integration of these advanced techniques allows our therapists to accurately evaluate our patients and then design and implement most effective treatment program returning you to your previous activities.

What Our Patients Are Saying


“In the five weeks I have had my physical therapy my lower back and shoulder pain have decreased significantly. My range of motion has improved as well. Everyday bending down is now almost pain free. I use to have a constant ache between my shoulder…not anymore! Thank you Frank and the great team at Oakland Physical Therapy!”


I have had shoulder pain for the past 10 years. I am now back to swimming which I had to give up due to my shoulder pain. Frank Kava has an incredible understanding of the physical body and was able to quickly assess where my core problem was, and has been able to get me back to the activities I love.


“After surgery I came to Oakland PT and worked with Linda Erickson for six weeks. I gradually regained full range of motion in my toe and foot within that time. And I am back to my very active lifestyle. As a retired dance instructor, this was so important to me to be active again! Thanks Linda and OPT Staff!”


I was not able to lift my left arm above my head, couldn’t raise it out to my side, and I couldn’t move it toward my back at all. I couldn’t zip a dress, fasten a bra, or wash my back. I worked with several therapists and improved weekly! Frank stepped in and pushed me farther than I thought I could go. I can do everything I used to be able to do pain free! YAY!
