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!"

"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."

"Thank you, thank you, thank you so much for all that you have done to help me get better. What I admire the most is that you have a kind, caring, outstanding staff that not only listens to what is going on with us but goes the extra mile to help each of us achieve our goals. Danny and Alika never, never, never gave up on me and helped me reclaim my life. I love all of you dearly."
