Doctor of Physical Therapy
Dr. Zucchelli received his doctorate in physical therapy from the University of Texas Medical School. Silvio was born and raised in Tuscany, Italy where he played semi-professional soccer. His interest in physical fitness developed during his soccer career when he was first introduced to physical therapy after an injury on the field. Through his prior clinical experiences and his years in PT school, Dr. Zucchelli developed a strong interest in treating sports-related injuries and helping his patients improve their physical performance via a combination of manual therapy and neuromuscular re-education. In his free time, Dr. Zucchelli enjoys playing soccer in Santa Monica in addition to weightlifting, hiking, and running.
I strongly believe in developing a strong relationship with all my patients so that we can better work together. I value the importance of understanding the source of the problem rather than only addressing the symptoms so that we do not only restore function, but we also prevent re-injury.
