Dr. Joanne Ehrenborg, PT, DPT

Dr. Joanne Ehrenborg, PT, DPT graduated from San Diego State University with a BS in Kinesiology in 2001 and worked as a Personal Trainer and Group Exercise instructor for 8 years. Having her own experience with back pain and surgery, she moved toward Physical Therapy. After graduating from MGH Institute of Health Professions in 2007 with a Doctor of Physical Therapy, she worked with many Harvard-associated hospitals in the Boston area, specializing in Spine/SI joint rehab, pre/post joint replacement, and chronic pain management rehab. Now living in San Diego, she has expanded her expertise to include integrative treatments such as Dry Needling, Reiki, Pilates, mind/body connection, and pain management. She uses a holistic approach to evaluations and treatments, in addition to manual tools, and she uses assessments of posture, gait, and functional movements to direct treatment.

Cathy A. Boppert, PT, AT, Ret, FAFS, FMR, CAFS, 3DMAPS

Cathy A. Boppert is happy to have joined the staff at Anderson Medical Center as a Registered Physical Therapist. Cathy’s accomplishments include: a BS of Physical Therapy, an MS of Athletic Training, a BS of Physical Education, being a Fellow of Applied Functional Science (FAFS) & Functional Manual Reaction (FMR), and being a former Certified Athletic Trainer.

Cathy grew up in Orange, CT and was athletically involved from a very young age in gymnastics, dance, field hockey, and track. While working on her first Bachelor degree, she was also on the Varsity Cross Country & Track team. She continued as a Women’s Cross Country and Track & Field Assistant Coach while working on her Master’s Degree in Athletic Training. Subsequently, Cathy began a career as an Athletic Trainer for Yale University in New Haven, CT. It was there that she became interested in physical therapy, which resulted in her going back to college to get her second BS in Physical Therapy while working as an Athletic Trainer at the University of New Haven.

Cathy then followed her dreams of living and working in paradise by moving to San Diego. Cathy’s 30 years of professional experience include working in outpatient orthopedic settings with specialized developed skills in treating multisport endurance athletes and post-surgical patients, and working with Saint Augustine and Mission Bay High School caring for their football teams as an athletic trainer. Cathy also has experience teaching aquatic therapy, Pilates, and balance and fall prevention classes, as well as developing and presenting workshops and seminars and educating DPT candidates as a Clinical Instructor. Cathy recently became certified in 3DMAPS (3 Dimensional Movement Analysis Performance Systems) used to effectively assess mobility and stability in patients and clients.

Early in her physical therapy career, Cathy was introduced to Gary Gray PT, who is the forefather of the system of Applied Functional Science which she found to be consistent with her goals of combining manual techniques, movement re-education, and prescribed exercises in order to have patients return to an active, healthy, and enjoyable lifestyle.

Besides teaching balance and fall prevention to seniors at the Rancho Santa Fe Senior Center, during her free time, Cathy takes full advantage of what she calls “God’s little corner of heaven on earth” that is San Diego. Cathy can be found running, cycling, weight training, and hiking in any given week. She looks forward to sharing her passion and knowledge with the local beach community.
