We are officially open now in Calabasas!


I have seen Margarita before and unlike most physical therapist she treats you the right way. Instead of taking shortcuts and coming up with temporary solutions Margarita and her staff take the time to properly confirm the injury and then treat it the correct way. I have had multiple elbow and shoulder injuries in the past and all have been completely healed thru her knowledge and techniques. I would recommend Margarita and anyone at Forward Motion without hesitation and would go there again in a heartbeat if I have any further injuries.

They really know their business. I have been to about 6 physical therapies in the last 10 years. They would just put heat and ice , then quick massage and send you off. Forward Motion explains what they are doing and educates you on how you body works and what is best for you. They really care about you before anything else. I would recommend them to everybody from sever problems like me with scoliosis to injuries or just getting back on your feet. I would give them a scale of 10 if I could. Highly Recommended !!!!!!

As a committed future Division 1 baseball pitcher I have been treated by those who were supposedly top Physical Therapists. I never thought there could be different quality levels of treatment. Forward Motion Physical Therapy is at the top, by for the most advanced thorough therapy I have ever experienced. Rita Mancheva is phenomenal in understanding the ailment and then resolving it. There are several others physical therapist near me but driving an hour to have then work with me a few times a week is well worth it because I know the treatment I am getting is top of the line and there is no where else you can get it. Simple stated, they are head and shoulders above anyone else.

Margarita Mancheva and Nick Berard are miracle workers- simply amazing. They take the time to assess and understand the ailment and then resolve it when others have failed. For years walking had been a problem but when the pain became unbearable and the quality of life had been greatly reduced Forward Motion was there to repair the damage. After a week, I could feel some relief. I was in awe that progress had been made so quickly. They are so knowledgeable, execute successful treatments and work well together to get the best results.
Together we worked on strengthening and stretching the muscles and they gradually introduced more exercises. They always made sure that I could replicate the exercises correctly on my own. They gave me an extensive home exercise program to help prevent future injuries. The water therapy provided an environment to get great workouts with no pain. ¬Physical therapy hurts but following their instructions, committing to consistently doing the exercises resolved my problem.
The entire team at Forward Motion are true professionals. Nick, Margarita, Dave and Sam are the dream team. They gave me hope and my life back. When you are not feeling well it’s wonderful to be surrounded by a friendly and helpful staff that are passionate about their profession.
Both Nick and Margarita are the best therapists I’ve ever had. If I have another injury- I’ll be back. I highly recommend Forward Motion.


Robin R., Calabasas, Ca.

I have searched for years for a physical therapy place that could help me with my back. As I tried each place I found no relief. My back was getting worse. My quality of life was looking dim. I thought “well I am getting old” My doctor recommend Forward Motion. So I thought this is the last time. After 7 visits I was feeling so much better. I was able to work, clean my house and live a healthy happy life. The depression I was feeling, because I was always hurting was now gone. I do my exercise every day its part of my life. There is no way I can ever thank Dr.Berard and his staff, for helping a 69 year old women feel like life is worth living. Thank you.
