About Us

Reischl Physical Therapy was started originally by Steve Reischl in 1984. Steve learned about treatment of the foot and ankle by shadowing Dr. Ronald Smith, MD, in his Long Beach office. Steve became an expert in this area and later published and instructed in this topic nationally and internationally. In 1987, his wife, Susan, joined Steve and the practice evolved to include all orthopaedic diagnoses.
