Transforming injuries into wellness and helping athletes achieve peak performance is the mission of Athletic Edge.


Athletic Edge is a proud leader in managing athletes' physical and mental state. Every athlete needs constant attention to maintain their physical and mental state, improve their performance, and increase their overall quality of life. At Athletic Edge, we recognize that each athlete is an individual, and that every sport provides different needs, but caring for these athletes is essentially the same. Utilizing all aspects of training from physical and mental training, sports therapy, and listening to the needs of the body, is the key to success. This allows the mind to trust the body, providing the best chance to succeed.

We seek a work-life balance in a world where this rarely exists. The challenges are the same whether you are involved in the high pressure tech world of Silicon Valley or the professional world of sports. We all fight to maintain a healthy balance, and perform at maximum potential while facing the challenges of an ever-changing fast-paced world.

Over the past decade, Athletic Edge has used science-based methods to provide the tools to individuals, teams, and organizations to experience a better quality of life, in return increasing their performance. These methods have been used in the most challenging environments of sports and business.

Let us join you on your journey to success.

Sports Therapy

We understand athletes!
Whether you are a weekend warrior, professional athlete, or somewhere in between, our therapists emphasize each of your individual needs.

Sports therapy is an advanced system of musculoskeletal techniques and treatment that
examines the body as a whole, while targeting specific injuries to give you the most beneficial form of treatment available. Sports therapy incorporates rehabilitation exercises and stretches to balance the body and prevent the injury from happening and/or returning.

We will customize your treatment plan, educate you on your imbalances, and demonstrate stretches and strengthening routines.

We want you to be able to go further, push harder, and achieve your goals, all while remaining injury free.

We've worked with professional athletes and teams since 2002.

Small Changes In Lifestyle = Improved Performance

At Athletic Edge, our goal to help each individual live the best life while continuing to enjoy improved performance. At Athletic Edge, we offer coaching and wellness services to individuals, teams, and organizations. We offer services such as: postural assessment, sports therapy, structural integration, ergonomic evaluations, and sports nutrition to individuals, teams, and organizations. The theory behind all of our services is evidence and scientific based, allowing our therapists to analyze the big picture and the minute details.


Looking At The Big Picture Through The Details

We do not have a magic wand, and we do not provide any quick fixes. We equip each person with the tools needed to achieve their desired results, and provide accountability to maintain the results. Optimal long-lasting results take time to achieve, but we see each improvement no matter how small, and help you see how these improvements build up to the desired goal.


    Posture For Performance

    How would you like to quickly improve your athletic performance, and massively reduce risk of injury, all while optimizing your health by emphasizing one simple concept?
    Proper posture is the foundation of optimal performance, and it is easily overlooked even though it can provide endless benefits. Let Athletic Edge bring proper posture to the forefront of your training plan by getting a postural assessment today!

    ** Where we work in Formula One, Sebastian Vettel is not one of our athletes.  As a four-time world champion in Formula One, we felt that he is a prime example of an elite athlete with postural issues. These issues could potentially affect his reaction time, career, and even leave life-long issues.

    Preventing Repetitive Stress Injuries In Youth Athletics -

    Participation in youth athletics has dramatically increased over the last two decades. Approximately 45 million children ages 6-18 participate in one or more forms of organized athletics.

    Studies have shown that nearly half of all injuries evaluated in pediatric sports clinics are correlate with overuse.

    Repetitive stress on the musculoskeletal system without adequate recovery time can result in chronic injuries triggered by overuse. Include Athletic Edge in your child's training to ensure a long and healthy athletic journey in the years to come!

    Awesome Reviews

    "With the aim of competing at a top level nationally and internationally, it's important to me that I work with the best sports physio therapy team. Christianna is incredibly knowledgeable, and she's been able to handle every issue that I've thrown at her. She has found solutions for every injury, and her attention to detail is impressive. Being the best at my sport is my top priority, I want results and solutions. I highly recommend Athletic Edge for physio and sports therapy."
    - Kate E.

    "Thank you Athletic Edge for making my running goals come true. With the help of the great work from the therapists at Athletic Edge, I went from being in pain while just walking to finish the 2012 San Francisco Marathon, to being able to successfully complete my first ultra-marathon without any pain..."
    - Cory G.

    "I hesitated to write this because I selfishly don't want Christianna's availability to go down, but the people need to know… She was able to pinpoint potential root causes of my pain and provide exercise solutions to fix it. I have never encountered a PT who can offer these dimensions so aptly. Trust me, professionals like her are rare… This was worth every penny to actually get proper treatment and care to get back on my feet and enjoy the activities I love..."
    - Chase L.

    "Christianna managed to fix a running injury to a tendon and worked with me on my running form, strength, and flexibility to prevent it from happening again. To my amazement, I was actually able to run a marathon 3 months after physical therapy. My injury hasn't reappeared, and my running times are stronger than ever. Awesome job, can't recommend highly enough."
    - Dave C.

    "These guys are amazing. Athletic Edge is probably best described as a one of a kind sports health center with physiotherapy, massage therapy, exercise physiology, and more. I first came in for a consult for my tennis elbow. My gym routine and technique were identified as the source of the problem. They did a full assessment, and I received hands on treatment and simple exercises to get the rehab started. When I was pain free, they reviewed the technique of my gym exercises, and even helped design a better gym program. I'm all recovered now, but I go in regularly for structural integration. 10/10!"
    - Mary W.

    "I have worked with sports physical therapists around the world, that were supposedly the best of the best. Christianna is by far the best sports therapist that I have ever worked with. She sees things with the human body that nobody else notices. If you want results, this is your place."
    - Ken H.
