Meet Dr. Kurtz

My name is Dr. Ben Kurtz. I am a Doctor of Physical Therapy, Board Certified Clinical Orthopedic Specialist, and owner of MJ Physical Therapy in Vista, CA. At MJ Physical Therapy, our passion is movement: Movement to repair our bodies, whether in response to injury or simply to improve athletic performance. Movement to restore our minds, tapping into the natural endorphins released during exercise to flood our brains with feelings of pleasure and well being in the face of the myriad emotional and mental stressors we face in the daily grind. Movement to renew our lives, realizing our goals and returning us to the activities that bring us joy. Motion is lotion, it keeps everything smooth.

I have been going to this facility for a couple of months now. It has been a great experience for me, and very very helpful to my injury! I always walk away physically and mentally feeling better than I did when I walked in. Everybody that works there is so kind and knowledgeable from Ben to Giselle to Matt to Erik And Xavier. They are all incredible people! I highly recommend this facility.

I can’t say enough good things about this PT office. Dr. Ben Kurtz and every member of his team are knowledgeable, friendly, kind… yes, kind… and detail-oriented. They don’t just assign you a pre-programmed set of exercises. Dr. Kurtz personalizes each treatment to exactly what your body or injury needs at that time. He is reasonable in the amount of home work, and has allowed me to progress at the pace that is right for my body. I’m so happy to have found this PT office. Highly recommend them!

The MJ clinic is incredible! Their personal one on one care helped me get back to 100% quicker than I imagined. If I had any questions, the therapist was there to answer. It was refreshing to know I had support throughout my recovery process! Great staff, incredibly knowledgeable! So friendly! Couldn’t ask for a better group!
