Doctor Ronald Samaniego the Man Behind ActiveLife Chicago Physical Therapy Clinic

Last October 19, we got the chance to interview Dr. Ronald Samaniego the man behind ActiveLife Chicago PT Clinic in an intimate meet and greet lunch with fellow Lifestyle and Health&Wellness blogger. We talked about his advocacy and future plans not only in the clinic itself, but also to the Physical Therapist.

After 17 years of studying and practicing in Chicago, Dr. Ronald Samaniego decided to go back here in the Philippines. He saw the opportunity of putting up his own clinic that specializes in Physical Therapy. Right now, Doc Ron is the only practicing Doctor of Physical Therapy in the Philippines. He is also the biggest provider of PT Clinics. Aside from the clinic, one of his future plans is to put up a school that will teach modern approach to the physical therapy procedure.

The ActiveLife Chicago Physical Therapy opened their first clinic last year and as of the moment they have 12 branches around Metro Manila and will be opening 3 more by the end of October.

ActiveLife Chicago provides the patient to have another option other than the 50 year old outdated procedure that the usual PT offers.

Some of the services they offered were sports rehab, post surgery rehab, acute and chronic pain therapy, vestibular rehab, shockwave, hands free ultrasound and stim combo. All of their Physical Therapist is personally trained by Doc Ron - to diagnose, to assess and to treat.

PTs will first fully assess the problem on your initial visit, they will inform you the cause of the problem and they will fix it right there and then. The length of visit depends on the complexity of patient case mostly 6-10 session. Their rate ranges from PHP 600 - 2500. They are also in partnership with the HMO.


Doc Ron demonstrate to us a simple muscle activation on Miss Leilani. And in just few minutes she felt the big difference on her left arm.


You may check out their Facebook page for more videos of patient before and after their therapy session with ActiveLife Chicago.


Read about my experience on their PT service soon on my blog. I'm really looking forward to try it because of my sprained foot.
