Our Story


Riviera Sports Physical Therapy was founded in December 2002 by Frank Croasdale, DPT.  Frank was introduced to physical therapy in middle school when he injured his knee playing football. The injury plagued him throughout high school and over time he began to look at physical therapy as a potential career.  Upon graduating from San Diego State University, he was accepted into the USC Physical Therapy Program and earned his Master's Degree.  While living in Manhattan Beach and attending USC, he came to the realization that this was where he wanted to settle down.  Frank took his first job at a local PT practice and over the next 10 years he refined his clinical skills, established a strong network with local physicians and created a huge local community following.   Finally, in 2002, he made the move to fulfill his dream and launched his own PT practice in Redondo Beach and has been treating patients ever since!  

Frank's mission is to ensure a successful rehabilitation and wellness experience by utilizing his expertise in manual therapy and exercise, while employing the highest standards of ethical and professional conduct in a comfortable and safe environment.
