Elizabeth Scarpelli

Physical Therapist, Orthopedic Clinical Specialist

Elizabeth Scarpelli, PT, OCS, FAAOMPT, has been a therapist for 35 years and brings a wealth of experience, expertise and energy to her practice. She has mentored over 30 graduate PTs on the path to specialization in orthopedic manual physical therapy. She was a senior instructor for over 20 years in the Kaiser Hayward PT Residency and Fellowship program, the first program of its kind in the country. This program set the standard for advanced clinical residency education in the US and Liz takes this philosophy to heart and continues to mentor therapists in her clinic. Her goal is to assist the PT to be the best they can be and pass it on. This provides huge benefits to our patients because that expertise in long term mentoring is carried forward to our patients treatments. 

That collaboration between therapists assists sorting out complex patient problems so that they can be addressed in the most efficient way.

Liz has been published in the American Physical Therapy Journal, and Kaiser Permanente National Website. She wrote a blog for the movie Miss Representation regarding the sordid history of foot binding and other insults to women’s feet.

Liz is an avid cyclist and treats her son (when he’s home) who rode on the Italian cycling team Aren Cucina last year.
