Mitchell Tsurudome
Mitchell Tsurudome graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Psychobiology from UCLA, and a Master’s in Physical Therapy from Azusa Pacific University. He achieved a Board Certification in Orthopedic Physical Therapy, then returned to Azusa Pacific, for his Doctorate in Physical Therapy. He has been a physical therapist for more than 18 years, pursuing his passion for rehabilitation, which began as a teenager watching his father recover from a stroke. He still recalls how valuable physical therapy was to his father’s recovery and return to daily life. While orthopedics is his specialty, he was exposed to cases of patients with vestibular disorders. Mitchell received more intensive training and education for Vestibular Rehabilitation. He is a key component to the success of Orange Coast’s Vestibular Rehabilitation Program providing competent and conscientious care and community outreach, including annual presentations about Balance and Fall Prevention.
