We give our bodies as much love as we can. We exercise, eat well, meditate, and sleep.


Yet, those aches and pains eventually sneak up on us. There are plenty of reasons for that: too much time at our computers or screens, body changes that come with pregnancy, and past injuries are just a few culprits. The good news is that you don’t have to accept your daily aches as part of life, and Apex Physical Therapy can help with that.


Apex Physical Therapy was created to empower patients to take charge of their health, both in and out of the office. Founded by Shawna Yee, a physical therapist who received her Doctorate in Physical Therapy from the University of Southern California, created Apex Physical Therapy to focus on just that. “I believe in patient education and a focus on patient-centered care,” says Yee. “I believe this education is the key to patient rehabilitation – teaching patients how to take care of their bodies.” She melds her background as an American Physical Therapy Board Certified Orthopedic Specialists (OCS) and as a Strength and Conditioning Specialists (CSCS) along with her appreciation of Pilates to create individualized care plans.

The Apex team is comprised of Yee, and fellow physical therapist Derrick Ishihara, who both have over 20 years of experience, and two office staff. It’s a small group, but that’s a good thing—it gives Yee and Ishihara the opportunity to work one-on-one with patients and give their full attention. This enables better communication as they work with patients to create a customized rehab program and educate them throughout the process. “We pride ourselves on fitting the treatment to the needs and lifestyle of our patients,” says Yee. “Part of that is learning about our patients as individuals, not just their injuries.”


Specialty areas include the neck, shoulders, lower back and knees—which can affect patients of all ages—along with pain associated with surgery, pregnancy, work-related injury and even systemic diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, Lupus and Parkinson’s.
