Water's Edge Physical Therapy and Wellness provides home-based, boutique, physical therapy and wellness services. We strive to provide customized corrective exercise and manual based therapies in order to help you perform and feel your best.
We believe the current insurance-driven care model creates obstacles for patients and practitioners to connect on a personal and professional basis. We cater home-based physical therapy and wellness services to north county San Diego residents, but we are available to travel greater distances upon request.

We can help you with almost any injury, head to toe. Physical therapy can be used to address a chronic and nagging neck pain, shoulder pain, back pain, hip pain, knee pain, foot and ankle pain. Physical therapy can also help with sports injury or post operative care such as post operative joint replacement recovery, rotator cuff repair, or back injury. Keep in mind that physical therapy can keep you involved with your sport of choice and be key in injury prevention.
Our mission is to provide physical therapy and wellness services to our coastal community, so people can enjoy the ocean, lead happier and healthier lives. Our vision is to provide a new venue for physical therapists to connect with the public in a user-friendly manner transcending the standard concept of physical therapy. Our core values are compassion, commitment to quality, and dedication to a healthy and active community in coastal California.

“As a long time surfer I was struggling with some issues that come upon many surfers as we age. Shane's extensive knowledge enabled her to understand what those issues were and then customize a training program that keeps me in the water longer and still riding shortboards at the age of 60.”
Mike May, VP Gaming Operations, Pechanga Casino and Resort
“I went to Shane with an acute case of sciatica. In short order, Shane identified the incorrect exercise form that caused my issue. I left that day feeling better and I followed Shane's personal plan for me. I have been pain free ever since. With Shane's expertise and direction, I can keep doing the activities that I love. Shane is totally focused on you with no distractions during your appointment. I highly recommend Shane Carpenter for state of the art physical therapy care.”
Mary Kate May -Massage Therapist
“Since I started working with Shane almost 3 years ago I have seen such a vast amount of improvement it is hard to quantify exactly. I was not comfortable walking and barely able to surf. I am happy to say that by following the exercise programs that Shane tailored for my specific needs and her hands on care, I am able to live the active lifestyle i chose so long ago and battle diligently to preserve. It is great to have such valiant ally on my side. Thanks Shane!”
