About TERRIO

There Has to Be a Better Way

In 1998, TERRIO Physical Therapy & Fitness, Inc. consisted of Tim Terrio performing physical therapy on a handful of patients out of one clinic in North Bakersfield. 19 years later the company has blossomed into a network of services all designed to help you, our customer, reach your fullest potential. TERRIO lives off the mantra "there has to be a better way." Thus, whenever TERRIO is presented with a problem, we look for a creative and innovative solution to that problem and then we make sure our patients "Get Informed, Get Moving, Get Better."

To demonstrate TERRIO's commitment to providing quality care and service to our patients, we have invested in measuring functional patient outcomes and patient satisfaction using a third-party outcomes system, Focus on Therapeutic Outcomes, Inc. (FOTO©).  While many in health care say they are committed to quality care and service, few are willing to put their resources into actually measuring these cornerstones and responding to them.

Furthermore, in January 2012 Tim Terrio and six other TERRIO physical therapists started the Evidence-In-Motion (EIM) program to further advance their education through the 18 month 'transitional' Doctorate in Physical Therapy Program or the 18 month Orthopedic Residency. It was through this program that TERRIO was selected to be part of the "Clinical Excellence Network" (CEN) program in Association with Rocky Mountain University where TERRIO received student interns. Through the years, TERRIO staff has helped EIM put together curriculums in Acute Care and Pediatrics and TERRIO is the only CEN member in the Nation that can offer students internship hours in Orthopedics, Sports, Acute, Rehabilitation, Pediatrics and Women's Health.
