Local Physical Therapy in Encinitas Who We Are

Our Story

As the owners of Longevity Physical Therapy, Mike and Sandra have always had a passion for functional physical therapy and spent years building a successful reputation for the business. G3 is the evolution of their therapy practice into a more comprehensive approach toward health and well-being. The elements of functional movement and personalized patient care remain, but the philosophy has progressed.

G3 is an idea that true health is only achieved when movement along the three planes of motion is paired with nutrition and mindfulness. G3 is also a physical place where people can gather and give of themselves to grow their minds, bodies, and spirits. Mike and Sandra have built G3 to humbly serve and support their patients and the community around them, creating strong relationships and long-lasting health.

Our Founders

Mike & Sandra Van Gilder have a total of twenty years combined in the physical therapy and wellness industry. Their passion for patients, involvement in the community, and drive to see others succeed in every aspect of their lives creates a welcoming and supportive environment at G3.
