Omar Flores

Dr. Omar Flores, PT, DPT, CSCS, CCWC grew up in Lodi, California and moved to Carpinteria in 2013 with his wife, Kelli. He is a former United States Marine Corps Sergeant and did two tours overseas, including Operation Iraqi Freedom in 2003.
Dr. Flores specializes in myofascial release, which is a safe and very effective hands-on technique that involves applying sustained pressure into the myofascial connective tissue restrictions to immediately eliminate pain and restore motion.
He is a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS), a Certified Clinical Weightlifting Coach (CCWC) and a Clinical Athlete Practitioner, allowing him to work specifically with athletes who want to get stronger or improve their performance.
Dr. Flores likes to take a functional-based approach to physical therapy. This signifies that he looks for the imbalances that cause pain by looking at the whole body, not just the injured area. Since the body is a tightly interconnected system, injuries cause changes that ripple through the whole body. Learning how the whole body has adjusted to injury reveals your roadmap to becoming pain-free once again.
He has and his wife raise their 2 kids, Maya and Kaiani. He enjoys CrossFit, Olympic Weightlifting, running, paddle boarding, surfing, and hanging out at the beach with his family.
