A2 Physical Therapy + Older Adults


A2 Physical Therapy is eager and passionate about helping Tacoma’s older adults live safer, healthier, and longer independent lives. Our PTA Molly Daugherty brings her experience from the acute care, skilled nursing, and outpatient physical therapy settings to A2 Physical Therapy, where she greatly values the collaborative approach A2’s physical therapists, personal trainers, and massage therapists use every day to provide exceptionally well-rounded  and patient-focused care. 

Comprehensive treatment programs are individualized for each patient with their personal goals, functional mobility, and balance abilities considered. We incorporate effective research-based interventions and Medicare-accepted outcome measures to provide the highest quality of personalized physical therapy in Tacoma. Specific treatments designed for people with Parkinson’s disease are also offered at A2.

At A2 Physical Therapy, we are excited to be working with the older adult community as we are currently accepting Medicare patients. Molly and the entire A2 team strive to positively affect the health-related quality of life with each of our patients. We are experienced and committed to helping older adults of all ages improve their confidence and retain their independence. 

"Dan was great to work with, as was the whole staff at A2 PT. I have been through PT on my shoulders twice before with different places and by far this has been my best experience. As a fit person, who wanted to remain active during my recovery- I felt like my PT program covered that. Dan knew what my preferred activities were and tailored my treatment to be able to do those things. The treatment plan was more like a workout and I loved it. I felt like each week I was getting stronger. I also appreciated that I was asked for constant feedback about how I was feeling/doing. If I ever need PT again (fingers crossed I don’t) I’ll be back!"

"Thanks so much - from the front desk, to my therapist Danny, to the owners. I felt supported by caring professionals while I recovered from my work related injuries. I felt encouraged to work hard to fully recover, and I feel like I have. Negotiating health care services can be overwhelming, but A2 made getting the care I needed straight forward. Thanks again for everything."

"After a three-car rear end accident, I had a concussion and severe whiplash. I picked A2 to help me recover. I will have to honestly say A2's expertise and therapists along with all the other staff, have been the "silver lining". They are very knowledgable and take the time to explain what they are doing. and why they are doing it. They are extremely friendly, thoughtful, and maintain flexible hours. I have followed the home exercises regularly and have seen steady improvement. This is very important as I am a small business owner with a physically demanding job. A2 has it all! Fantastic physical therapists, massage therapist, and personal fitness trainers, all under one roof. Alika is a visionary and A2 is the hidden jewel of PT, but not for long."
