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. 

"A2 has been wonderful in helping me with my elbow pain. The skilled staff has attacked my ailment with an array of methods. I came in with 6-7/10 pain and after a few weeks my elbow is down to 1-2/10. The environment is warm and welcoming. The staff is friendly and very skilled. They take the time to listen and formulate a personalized plan. One of the tools they use is the Neubie. I have had amazing results using it. Its ability to target and safely load a specific area is very helpful. Overall, A2 is amazing and I would highly recommend it to any and all!"

"Kristi gives me a great positive feeling; to feel good bout myself. I have never been able to keep up on a food journal- now its easy. My personal goals are to have a decreased pulse rate, be fit, and take care of my heart. I come in on Wednedays at 5 am. Sometimes its hard to ge tout of bed, but I know I am working with someone (Kristi) who I am accountable too. Kristi is always so pleasant and never makes me feel ashamed of myself. A2 is a great place, each person is so positive. You learn to feel better by getting your mind to feel better first…. Think positive! I love this place, I will recommend each personto A2 either for PT or personal training. You guys are #1!"

"I’ve had 4 surgeries with different physical therapy clinics and this was my favorite. I felt comfortable and felt like I mattered to my PT which was a good feeling. My progress was as I had expected and any time I had a question or concern it was always answered and my PT adjusted. If it needed to be to avoid the pain I had I didn’t feel pressured to have more PT appointments or pressured to do workouts that aggravated my pain. Thank you for your help! I think offering stem and ultrasound for every patient will be really beneficial. Great experience overall."
