Get Better Faster with Fewer Visits.

Physiotherapy and physical therapy can be used interchangeably, but what you want to know is what that means in terms of the care you will receive. We use physiotherapy as opposed to physical therapy in our name, because the physical therapy realm is becoming too hands-off in their approach to patient care, and we want it to be visible from the beginning that we are different.

The alternative path to treating people in a standard clinic is through mobile physical therapy. We provide outpatient care to those in who need it, where they need it most. Mobile physical therapy allows us to provide physical therapy for San Diego, La Mesa, El Cajon, Santee, and the surrounding area.

We are in-network with Medicare and out-of-network with other insurance companies. With this model, our doctor of physical therapy, Karl, is able to see patients without the restrictions that limit the ability to assist people in preventing and recovering from pain or an injury. In some cases, it actually is the exact same price as a corporate physical therapy company!

We also specialize in a variety of outpatient treatments, including but not limited to; rehabilitation physical therapy, family physical therapy, sports medicine physical therapy, elderly fall prevention, orthopedic and sports physical therapy.

Reach out today so we can help you to Live Life, the way you want to live it.


Concierge Services

Busy Schedule?

Your time is valuable! Live Life offers Physical Therapy services at your choice of location, usually at home or work. In addition to eliminating travel and waiting room time, we are able to assess your environment for benefits, possible obstacles, and pain triggers.

Are You Concerned About Spreading of Germs in Busy Clinics?

You will be treated 1-on-1 by our Physical Therapist who contacts a limited number of other patients and meticulously follows rigorous sanitary protocol, including clean outer clothing, mask, and gloves, and thorough hand-washing for each client.

Have You Ever Felt Rushed Through 10 to 15 Minute Appointments?

Live Life Physiotherapy is different! You will receive 1-on-1 care for the entirety of your appointment. You will have plenty of time to explain your needs and concerns. Together, we will develop a customized plan to address all factors contributing to your pain, so you can Live Life on Your Terms.

Ever Feel Like Someone Other Than Medical Professionals Are Calling the Shots on Your Care?

One of the greatest benefits to an Out-Of-Network (OON) model is the freedom to help the person in front of us without the financially driven oversight from non-medical interests. Your plan is setup by you and the Physical Therapist to best serve your needs.

Telehealth Services

While we do perform hands-on treatment, many conditions also lend themselves to telehealth, including assessment of movement patterns and habits, and prescription of movement and exercise interventions. Our telehealth platform is extremely easy to use for those who prefer this option. This is an attractive option during our current challenging environment with COVID-19 as it completely eliminates the chance of spreading the virus!

Karl Burris PT, DPT
Orthopedic Clinical Specialist

Professional Qualifications

Karl Burris, PT, DPT, OCS earned his Doctorate of Physical Therapy and his Orthopedic Clinical Specialty at A. T. Still University. He is licensed in California and Arizona. Since completion of his formal education, he has participated in countless continuing education opportunities to extend his expertise. He has had five years of experience treating clients with a wide variety of orthopedic and neurological conditions. He has a special interest in the complex issue of pain, its relationship to all systems of the body, and numerous strategies to enable you to Live Life on Your Terms.

Personal History

A product of East San Diego County, Karl has had a life-long love of sports, playing youth baseball, soccer, and high school basketball at West Hills High, and coaching girls’ basketball at Steele Canyon and El Capitan. While studying for his BA at SDSU, Karl worked as a pharmacy assistant, interacting with large numbers of people struggling to manage pain using medication as their only strategy. At about the same time, he witnessed a transformation when his ailing grandfather incorporated exercise into his daily routine.

These experiences motivated Karl to help people find active ways to alleviate pain through Physical Therapy. Although he enjoyed helping people in traditional outpatient orthopedic clinics, he was frustrated by the limitations imposed by insurance companies and looked for alternative paths to treating people out-of-network. Karl developed Live Life Physiotherapy to provide treatment sessions customized to your needs and goals.

Karl and his wife, Christine, live in East County with their daughter, son, and dog Charlie.
