Meet Darlene Eubanks
Why Motus PT?
Motus = Movement = Life.
Motus PT was founded by Darlene Eubanks, PT, MPT, OCS, in July 2014. Motus, defined as “movement” in Latin, was created to allow Darlene to focus therapy treatments around the developmental body mechanics and neuromuscular stabilization principles of the “Prague School” Method.
The Path to Physical Therapy
Born and raised in Missouri, Darlene’s greatest passion was sports! While competitively involved in softball, soccer, and swimming, she sustained various injuries which inspired her to become a physical therapist.
After high school, Darlene left the Midwest and moved to Los Angeles for school, earning a Master’s Degree in Physical therapy with Distinction from California State University, Northridge.
Darlene began her career at Hollywood Presbyterian Medical Center, providing physical therapy to patients in the hospital outpatient, inpatient acute, and transitional care units. She then transitioned to a private outpatient clinic for almost a decade, focusing on orthopedic and neurological musculoskeletal disorders, sports injuries, pre and post-operative rehabilitation, chronic pain management, and fall prevention.
These invaluable experiences allowed Darlene to develop a diverse background in physical therapy treatments, ranging from acute illnesses to chronic injuries, for pediatric through geriatric populations.
Darlene’s Journey to Truly Holistic Care
Creating Motus PT reflects Darlene’s progression from an orthopedic specialist focused on individual joints to a holistic practitioner incorporating movement science, developmental body mechanics, and neuromuscular stabilization methods originating from the Prague School of Rehabilitation. This perspective led Darlene to a deep dive into the integral role of both the diaphragm and the pelvic floor in movement, stabilization, and the whole body system. This full body approach also included the integration of a structured breathing routine (the Bradcliff Breathing Method), incorporating breath and its influence into all areas of treatment and performance training.
As a truly holistic practitioner, Darlene focuses her treatments on the whole client, considering biological, psychological, and social influences unique to each individual’s pain, injury, or illness to achieve life-long wellness.
Transitioning to Telehealth—and staying there
When the pandemic hit in early 2020, telehealth physical therapy became essential. Surprisingly, when businesses opened up again, many clients preferred the comfort and convenience of telehealth sessions and chose to continue with virtual visits. Additionally, Darlene found she was able to provide the same highly effective, skilled therapy treatments while accommodating a wider variety of client schedules and reaching more clients in rural and outlying areas.
Because of these positive outcomes, in 2022 Darlene transitioned to exclusively being a telehealth physical therapist—providing virtual physical therapy to California residents and online wellness visits to individuals worldwide.
When not working with clients as a telehealth physical therapist, Darlene remains active in sports enjoying cycling, hiking, paddle boarding, golf and an occasional triathlon.
My goal is to help you achieve optimal health by providing the most comprehensive and personalized treatment plan, comprised of a balanced blend of science, art and compassion.
