Dr. Ben Bagge, PT, DPT, CSCS
Pro+Kinetix was created to help active adults and athletes in Oakland & the surrounding Bay Area return to their previous activities that they enjoyed as quickly and safely as possible while avoiding surgery, injections, and multiple trips to the doctor's office.
Ben is a physical therapist, certified strength and conditioning specialist, and also a USA weightlifting coach. Ben received his bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology from the University of Northern Iowa where he then went on to receive his Doctorate of Physical Therapy from Clarke University in Dubuque, Iowa. Ben recognized quickly upon entering graduate school for physical therapy that there was, and continues to be, a large gap between rehabilitation and returning to fitness activities.
Throughout Ben's time in physical therapy school, he actively sought out the most reputable certifications in the training industry and ones that he felt would allow him to bridge this gap. Most recently, Ben flew to DBC, a training facility in Miami, to be directly mentored by some of the greatest minds in the sports performance industry and one’s who train some of the world's greatest athletes. Ben now incorporates many of the same techniques and training philosophies that DBC utilizes with their athletes which includes; LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, John Wall, Antonio Brown, Victor Olidipo, and many more.
Ultimately, his education and experience has allowed him to more effectively treat, as well as train, current and future clients while allowing them to get back to the workouts and sports they love without medications, surgery, or taking time off . Furthermore, Ben specializes in injury prevention and is Functional Movement Screen (FMS) certified. This screening process allows Ben to identify compensatory movement patterns that can be indicative of increased injury risk and inefficient movement that can cause reduced performance.
What Makes Pro+Kinetix Different
Throughout Ben's time in the profession of physical therapy, he has observed a trend, which is that many physical therapy clinics are now requiring their physical therapists to see multiple patients at once. This ultimately leads to the physical therapist only being able to spend 15-20 minutes with each patient before sending them off to complete 45 minutes of exercises on their own.
This often results in patients having to come to twice as many physical therapy visits to reach their goals.
Ben decided he could no longer watch patients slow down their recovery time in large physical therapy "mills". He knew his patient's deserved better and therefore, he founded Pro+Kinetix in Oakland, California.
Ben now prides himself on providing 1-on-1 hour long performance based physical therapy sessions which ultimately allows his patients to get back to the activities they love much more quickly.
