Karen Garrett was inspired to become a Physical Therapist watching the courage and perseverance of her father, a quadriplegic for as long as she can remember. As she first-hand witnessed the power of Physical Therapy, she could imagine no other path for herself then to become a PT...the best PT she could be!
Upon graduating with honors at Quinnipiac University with her Master's in Physical Therapy, Karen began her career and immediately wanted more. She completed her Mastery Certification in Manual Therapy and then went on to complete her DPT at Temple University. Still thirsty for knowledge, Karen took her first class with the Institute of Physical Art and immediately saw the potential to grow further. Karen completed her Certification in Functional Manual Therapy in just under 3 years since her first PNF class. As a CFMT, Karen began building her private practice in Los Angeles, both in Playa del Rey and Palos Verdes. She then went on to complete the Integrated Systems Model Series, under Diane Lee.
Karen is passionate about Physical Therapy and feels truly blessed to join her patients in their path of healing, recovery, accelerating, and reaching their goals.
When not in the clinic, Karen is sharing life, love, and laughter with her husband, James, and their daughter, Skyla, born in 2020! Enjoy the Journey!
We have all been deeply saddened by the tragic loss of Dr. Beth. She is still in our loving and warm-hearted memory. Her legacy lives on with her at Coast Physical Therapy practice. Dr. Karen Garrett has taken the helm at Coast Physical Therapy; providing leadership and individual treatment plans. Ralph Tamayo, PTA, and Craig Kojima, PTA masterfully provide manual physical therapy. When you arrive, you are warmly welcomed by front des with a big smile and a friendly hello. You are treated like caring good friends and family. You always feel welcomed.
With the Corona Virus, Coast Physical Therapy takes exceptional steps in keeping their facilities cleaned, disinfected, and sanitized for the health and safety of their team and patients making it their top priority. Coast Physical Therapy perform a screening process by checking individual’s temperature for a fever on their employees and every patient prior to treatment. Everyone is required to wear a face mask for protection from Covid-19. The Coast team consistently sanitized after every use of their equipment and therapy tables. Their level of cleanliness and disinfection practice is better than most hospitals. For me, I have an improved quality of life. Being close to eighty years old, I have been diagnosed with a herniated disc in my lower back, along with degenerative arthritis and stenosis. Both knees have torn meniscus, as well as having Type II diabetes. Instead of surgery, my doctor sent me to Coast Physical Therapy. Today I do not require surgery. My strength, stamina, and energy level have been restored. I no longer have diabetes since my A1C is back in the normal range. I no longer require insulin shots or need to take diabetes medication. For years, I had been taking twelve different prescriptions and now with the improvements in my physical condition I only need two prescriptions. Another benefit of my going to Coast, I have lost over thirty pounds. My quality of life has greatly improved allowing me to take walks with my wife every day. I am sure one could find other good physical therapy places but why not go to the best. Trust me.
