Landon Toma, DPT, PT

Physical therapist

Landon Toma is a physical therapist and orthopedic clinical specialist who works with patients ranging from athletic adolescents to geriatric individuals facing the challenges of aging or injury.

Toma's clinical and research interests include general musculoskeletal injuries, particularly chronic low-back pain and dysfunction of the temporomandibular joint, which connects the jaw and the side of the head. He also is interested in clinical reasoning — the process health care providers use to make decisions in patient care — and vestibular rehabilitation, which is a therapy to mitigate problems with balance and dizziness.

Toma earned his bachelor's degree in exercise science at the University of Hawaii and a doctor of physical therapy degree from the University of Southern California. He also completed an orthopedic residency and fellowships in manual therapy and movement science at Kaiser Permanente Southern California.

Toma has served in clinical faculty and committee roles for the orthopedic residency programs of Kaiser Permanente Southern California, Loma Linda University and Stanford Health Care. He also has worked in interdisciplinary family practice, sports medicine and temporomandibular joint disorder clinics.

A fellow of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Manual Physical Therapists, Toma serves as adjunct faculty for Samuel Merritt University's physical therapy program.
