We are physical therapists that believe in individualized care, overall wellness, and a continuation of care beyond pain relief
WHY ARE WE DIFFERENT?
We hold the belief that care should be individualized and unique to each person, through personal training, physical therapy, and having the necessary tools to keep your body running at an optimal state.
Our Mission at Wellness Tribe is to provide our community an individualized approach to physical therapy. We believe that physical therapy starts before an injury becomes prevalent, which is why we start with the prehab phase to identify potential stressors that may lead to an injury in the future. We don’t stop there, because once goals are met in physical therapy, we strive to offer individualized training to set the patient up for future success by becoming an expert on their own body.
MEET OUR TEAM
Alex Zhidetskiy PT, DPT
Alex was born and raised in Ukraine. When he moved to Long Beach, California at 7 years old, he remembers thinking how weird it was moving from a country that had all four seasons to California, where it seemed like it was summer year-round. He spent his elementary, middle, and high school years in Long Beach and proceeded to achieve his B.S. in Biological Sciences from the University of California, Irvine (Zot Zot Zot!).
While in his undergraduate years at UCI, Alex realized he wanted to go into PT after countless injuries that occurred while playing basketball and remaining active. He dislocated both his ankles playing basketball. Multiple visits (or years) of physical therapy peaked his interest in pursuing it as a career and led him to shadow PT’s, participate in volunteer work, and work as a physical therapist aid.Realizing his newfound passion, he pursued to earn his Doctorate in Physical Therapy at Chapman University.
His specialties include orthopedics, geriatrics, pediatrics, and neurology. He speaks English and Russian and seeing his patients progress on a daily basis and reach their functional potential keeps him motivated as a physical therapist. In his free time, Alex enjoys working out, participating in Spartan races, hiking, cooking, and cosplay.
