Cameron Rau graduated from California State University, Long Beach (CSULB) with his Bachelor of Science Degree in Kinesiology and an emphasis in Exercise Science. After obtaining his B.S. degree, he went on to pursue his Doctorate degree in Physical Therapy from Chapman University, one of the longest continually accredited physical therapy programs in the nation. While at Chapman, Cameron had the opportunity to focus his clinical rotations in multiple outpatient orthopedic settings, working with patients of all ages and conditions. He has experience with sports injuries, conditions of the spine, and sacroiliac joints. In addition, he also gained experience treating patients with neurological conditions. Dr. Rau furthered his academic knowledge while working as a graduate lab assistant for Doctoral level Physical Therapy students at Chapman University.
Dr. Rau has also completed post-graduate course work, becoming a Graston Technique® provider. Graston Technique® is an evidence-based form of instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization which uses specialized stainless steel instruments that enables clinicians to effectively address scar tissue and fascial restrictions through comprehensive training, resulting in improved patient outcomes. He is also planning to further his education through the Titleist Performance Institute (TPI) in the near future.
Dr. Rau believes each patient should receive individualized care through a combination of comprehensive manual therapy in order to address joint mobility and soft tissue restrictions. In addition to therapeutic exercise, he emphasizes neuromuscular re-education. He strives to normalize faulty movement patterns in his patients so that they may return to doing what they love without pain.
In his free time, Cameron enjoys golfing, snowboarding, crossfit, and spending time with his wife and dog. He lives locally in Seal Beach, CA.
