RAY ROMERO, PHYSICAL THERAPY ASSISTANT GETTING TO KNOW THE SILVER CREEK PHYSICAL THERAPY TEAM!
Hi, my name is Ray. I am a physical therapist assistant at Silver Creek Fitness and Physical Therapy in our Fremont/Newark location. I’ve been at this location for nearly 15 years treating people who are recovering from injuries and assisting those to prevent disabilities. My interest in physical therapy started off with my introduction to sports during my childhood. Ever since I shot my first basketball, caught my first football, kicked my first soccer ball, hit my first baseball, and set my first volleyball, I was intrigued on how the body moved, how the body can be trained, how the body could recover from injury, and how the body could perform.This fascination in kinesiology stimulatedmy interest in pursuingmy career. My passion in sports, not only paved the way for me in a profession in physical therapy, but has also givenme themotivation to coach and work with the youth. Sports is a very powerful tool to help in the development of children. Sports can instill characteristics, such as physical fitness, teamwork, physical andmental strength, perseverance, etc. All these traits are important tomental and physical
health and preparing the youth to handle challenges they will inevitably encounter, and manage the stresses of day to day life as they get older. I started out coaching my daughters’ school teams and in 2016 started directing and coaching my own competitive sports club called Bay Area Storm. Bay Area Storm is a sports club, in the Tri-City Area, that creates formal teams in basketball and volleyball. We not only instruct and practice to develop skills in a player to compete in a competitive environment, but our focus is on using sports to develop a more confident, stronger, and successful person. Sports has givenme the opportunity and direction to help people who have injuries and disabilities through the discipline of physical therapy and to assist children in their development for the future through coaching in sports.
