Pro-Active Physical Therapy

Welcome to Pro-Active Physical Therapy. The Pro-Active Physical Therapy System treats the injured tissues first, to restore functional movement, often within the first session. Through the use of stretching and strengthening exercises, Pro-Active gives patients the necessary tools for long term healing and the correction of harmful postural imbalances.

Colin Broadbelt is a sports orthopedic physical therapist and CEO of Pro-Active Physical Therapy. Mr. Broadbelt came to the profession of physical therapy, not only as a result of the aches and pains he deservedly earned through years of self abuse from various athletic endeavors, but also by witnessing the dramatic relief his father derived from myofascial therapy. (Before finding a myofascial therapist, his father had suffered for several years, due to the intense pain from temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ). He had so much difficulty chewing food that he usually used a blender to reduce his foods to liquid form).

At the age of seventeen, Colin enlisted in the US Navy, where he served as a medical corpsman with both the Marine Corps Infantry and the Reconnaissance Rangers. Following his military service, Mr. Broadbelt graduated from Penn. State University with a degree in French/Business. He also spent his junior year abroad in Montpellier, France, where he allegedly studied only the French language.

Eventually, Mr. Broadbelt went on to obtain a Master’s degree in Physical Therapy from the University of Southern California in 1995. Prior to opening his private practice, Mr. Broadbelt worked at St. John’s Hospital in Santa Monica, CA, in both their inpatient and orthopedic settings. Working for St. John’s, Colin was introduced to treating professional athletes, while he traveled with the women’s professional volleyball tour throughout California.

Over the past fifteen years, Colin Broadbelt has worked with individual athletes ranging from week-end warriors to collegiate, professional, and Olympic athletes. He has treated members of the FBI, US Military, Police, LAFD, as well as notable members of the entertainment community. In addition, Mr. Broadbelt specializes in and enjoys working with the geriatric population. While still in physical therapy school, Mr. Broadbelt researched and submitted his grant research proposal to study the most effective approaches to weight bearing exercise for the elderly population.

Disappointed by the failures of traditional physical therapy treatments, Colin Broadbelt pursued alternative approaches to sports orthopedic rehabilitation that include numerous certifications in myofascial and manual therapy such as: Active Release Techniques, the Graston Technique, Active Isolated Stretching Techniques, and many others. Treatments at Pro-Active Physical Therapy also utilize the latest in technology, with photon therapy accompanying the manual therapy techniques that Mr. Broadbelt employs.

While a long-time resident of the Santa Monica/Venice community, Mr. Broadbelt developed an intimate style of treatment that is strictly one-on-one time with the physical therapist. His patients receive fifty minutes of hands-on physical therapy (roughly twice the national average for a physical therapy visit), and no part of the treatment is passed off to assistants or aides.

Mr. Broadbelt recently moved to Austin, Texas, where he is ecstatically married to his beautiful wife Kathy, and having fun with their three canine kids – Marley, Maggie, and Teddy.
