Andy Tran, PT, MPT, MBA
Coming to the US from Vietnam in 1990, I had never heard of physical therapy. In college, I was planning to go to pharmacy school. After my father was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease, I started looking into other healthcare careers which could assist him during his disease's progression. I stumbled upon the field of physical therapy and was attracted to the vast diseases and impairments that a PT can treat. I was fortunate to attend the Physical Therapist Assistant program at Loma Linda University. One of my classmates, Sean Pham, became my lifelong friend and co-founder of Dynamix Physical Therapy. After working a couple years as a PTA, I went back to Loma Linda University and got my Master in Physical Therapy. While working as a PT, I graduated from UC Irvine with a Healthcare Executive MBA (Master of Business Administration). Combining my business education background and PT training, Sean and I formed Dynamix Physical Therapy in 2005. Since our inception, we have grown into several outpatient clinics and a home health rehab staffing agency.
Throughout my career, I have worked in a variety of settings: acute hospitals, skilled nursing facilities, pediatric clinics, outpatient orthopedic clinics, and home health. I enjoy treating and helping patients achieve whatever their goals might be, either getting back to their previous level of function or improving their quality of life. I feel blessed to be a small part of each patient's life and recovery process.
When I'm not working, I enjoy spending time with my wife and chasing our 2 little boys. I also try to be active by working out and playing competitive soccer every Sunday in our local league.

Alyson O'Connor,PT, DPT, CSCS
I graduated from California State University Fresno in 2015 with my Doctorate Degree and a love for research into different types of muscle and joint disorders. I was very fortunate to have been taught by Dr. Jenna Sawdon-Bea, PhD, DPT where I was able to conduct my graduate research on “Electromyographic Analysis on Specific Exercise and Angle of Activation of the Lower Trapezius Muscle in the Female College-Age Population”. I was also mentored by Dr. Elijah M. Freeman, PT, DPT, OCS, CSCS in putting my knowledge to use through manual therapy for multiple disorders such as Musculoskeletal, Cervico-Thoracic, and Lumbopelvic Spine Disorders in his specialized advance courses.
I joined Dynamix Physical Therapy in 2016 and am currently the Lead therapist there. I am passionate about utilizing the knowledge and skills that I have gained through my studies in Musculoskeletal/Orthopedic care ranging from TMJ, extremities, spinal column, and sacroiliac joint disorders. My studies give me the confidence to effectively treat both Orthopedic post operations after care and Geriatric populations at whatever level they come to me. I also take great pride as a clinical instructor at Dynamix where I mentor numerous students on their clinical rotations finding their own path in Physical Therapy.
Born and raised in New York, I received my Bachelors of Science degree in Health and Exercise Science from Skidmore College in Saratoga Springs, NY. During college, I realized I could transform my love for helping people and my passion for health into a career by pursuing my physical therapy degree. Wanting a change of pace (and scenery), I graduated with my Doctor of Physical Therapy degree from Nova Southeastern University in Fort Lauderdale, FL in 2015.
I moved to California shortly after and have embraced the West Coast wholeheartedly. I have worked with clients of all ages and have experience in both outpatient (orthopedic, neurological, and sports injuries) and home health physical therapy. I am a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist through the National Strength and Conditioning Association and I love to use my expertise to create individualized exercise prescriptions for each patient I work with. I also utilize this knowledge to create my own exercise programs for my workouts.
I strive to empower my patients to take their health and wellness into their own hands by providing personal, caring, and comprehensive education. I believe that this develops with quality time spent with patients and will help prevent future injuries/pain while improving overall quality of life.

I was born and raised in Southern California and have enjoyed all aspects of growing up in such a wonderful place. I received my Bachelor of Artsin Kinesiology and Nutrition Science from Whittier College in 2014, and moved to San Diego to receive my Doctorate in Physical Therapy from the University of St. Augustine for Health Sciences in 2017.
In high school, I determined that I wanted to be in a profession where I could make the most impact by helping others. This thought was always in the back of my mind and I made the decision that being a Physical Therapist would allow me to reach my goal. Being a Physical Therapist would give me the opportunity to not only help others, but would also allow me to help get people back to what they love doing in their lives, which is the biggest reward for me. My goal when treating patients is to bring positive energy and excitement to help them see that there is a way to improve the issue or injury they are facing.
I believe it’s important to balance work and life and use that in my approach with the people I help to care for their overall well-being. When I am not working, my hobbies include attending sporting events, going to concerts, and hanging out with my family and friends.
I grew up in the Garden Grove and have deep roots in the community. After completing high school at Bolsa Grande High School, I received my undergraduate education at University of California, San Diego, majoring in Human Biology and minoring in Psychology and Human Development. It was here that I learned about the many opportunities in healthcare and decided my calling was in a career serving others. I decided to pursue physical therapy because it provided me with a constant challenge and allowed me the ability to work closely with individuals who had the desire to improve their function, improve their quality of life and optimize their performance.
I went to Fresno State for my formal education in physical therapy and was involved in research to determine the link between obesity and osteoarthritis in women. During this time, I was also introduced to the competitive sport of adapted wheelchair soccer, as well as working with individuals with prosthetics. I thoroughly enjoyed my time in the Central Valley but decided to return home and begin my career in physical therapy career with Dynamix Physical Therapy.
I have extensive knowledge in treating post-operative conditions, orthopedic conditions, and geriatrics. Along with working as a physical therapist here at Dynamix, I also serve as a Credentialed Clinical Instructor, providing guidance to physical therapy students during their internships at our clinic. When not working, I enjoy playing basketball, rooting for the Los Angeles Lakers and watching movies.

Being a physical therapist is more than my career, it is my passion. I graduated from California State University, Fullerton with my B.S. in Kinesiology and began working as a physical therapy aide. I was then accepted into Western University of Health Science where I received my Doctorate in Physical Therapy.
My commitment is to helping individuals achieve their goals. I specialize in general rehab and have additional training in kinesiotaping and instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization. I am also a certified emergency medical responder through the Sport Physical Therapy Section. I continuously keep up to date with current research to better serve my patients. I excel working with a wide variety of individuals from geriatric clients to elite level athletes. I truly care about the importance of my patient’s individual goals because I was also a physical therapy patient at multiple points in my life.
In addition to being a physical therapist, I am an active person. Health and wellness have always been a huge part of my identity. At a young age I began Tae Kwon Do before transitioning into football, wrestling and track & field in high school. In college, I continued wrestling and started playing rugby. I currently train in Jiu-jitsu, Muay Thai, CrossFit, Yoga and MMA. My other hobbies include coaching, photography, and traveling. I look forward to learning more about my patients and doing my best to help them practice their passions!
I attended Cal State Long Beach for my undergrad and Stanbridge University for my Master’s in Occupational Therapy. I became an OT because I really enjoy interacting with and helping patients get back to doing what they love to do.
Activities of daily life (ADLs) are things that most people take for granted – dressing, grooming, eating, showering, toileting, etc.; however, some people have a hard time completing these daily activities due to medical reasons. Teaching and training people how to care for themselves and gain some level of independenceis what I love about my job.
Outside of work, I enjoy eating, lifting, investing, gaming, sleeping, playing volleyball, shooting hoops, hanging out with my dog, watching Netflix, going to Disneyland, and listening to podcasts.

For most people, it takes some time for them to figure out exactly what it is they’re naturally good at - usually academics, athletics, or art. Butfor me, I was lucky enough to figure out what I liked to do and even luckier to actually be good at it. When it comes to how the body moves, my experience stems from participating in activities requiring me to figure out how my own body moves. These activities range from weight lifting at the gym, joining dance groups all over Southern California, tumbling in gymnastics, practicing flexibility in yoga, and even a quick stint training in jazz.
I graduated from American Career College in 2017 with my certification as a Physical Therapy Assistant and have appreciated every moment. From seeing improvements in patients’ functional mobility in their own homes to a progressive decrease in debilitating pain inside a clinic, I take satisfaction in knowing that everyone deserves to live a full and happy life.
Being consistently driven to have and enjoy a multitude of experiences, I always find myself being attracted to new avenues of physical fitness. Besides the weekend basketball games at my local park, I am also an avid golfer and tennis player. I also love to hike and have enjoyed countless picturesque moments atop hills and mountains with my closest friends and family.
I am a Southern California girl, born and raised. I have always been an active person and jumped into any sport or activity that I could get involved with while growing up. I am a big believer in team sports and everything you can learn from them. I love any sort of competition and am always up for a challenge. I think these factors are a major part of who I am today and why I chose to become a PTA.
I received my bachelor’s degree in Biological Sciences from UC Santa Barbara and spent 4 years reinforcing my will power by fighting the urge to spend every day on the beach. I received my PTA degree from Loma Linda University where I was blessed with the chance to learn and develop my love for physical therapy and for people as a whole. I have been lucky enough to spend the last 3 years combining my passion for helping people with my love for activity by teaching people how to improve their quality of life and return to what they miss doing most.
I enjoy travelling and dream of exploring the world as much as I can. I like to experience new places, cultures, and especially new foods. I enjoy cooking and baking but my favorite part is the eating. It’s impossible to keep me out of the sunshine and the fresh air during my free time. Most days off, you can find me either with friends and family or walking through the neighborhood parks with my pup Grady as he enjoys his favorite activity - chasing squirrels.

Physical Therapist Assistant
My passion for sports rehabilitation and athletics began when I was a child playing various sports, but through soccer in particular. I played on my high school team and competed on an intramural co-ed soccer team throughout college. I attended the University of California, Irvine and earned my Bachelor of Arts in Sociology prior to returning to school to pursue my career in the physical therapy field. I graduated with an Associate’s degree in Applied Science from Concorde Career College in the Physical Therapy Assistant class of 2017.
I am excited to work with Dynamix Physical Therapy as a physical therapist assistant and to be able to apply my knowledge and experience to restoring patients’ mobility to their fullest potential with the help of my colleagues. I have experience working with orthopedic patients and am certified as an ASTR (Advanced Soft Tissue Release) provider.
In my spare time, I enjoy traveling, trying different cuisines, attending concerts, and spending time with my husband, daughter, and two dogs.
