Meet the Owner:
Dr. Ryan Zumwalt

Lighthouse Physical Therapy & Sports Medicine is a locally owned private practice in Spokane Valley. The owner, Dr. Ryan Zumwalt, is a native to Spokane and grew up at Lighthouse, literally. Dr. Zumwalt graduated from University Highschool, with success academically but also winning state championship in wrestling. Dr. Zumwalt continued his passion for wrestling throughout college and won a national championship in 2013.

Dr. Zumwalt not only achieved his pre-med degree in Biomedical Science, he also accomplished 4 additional degrees. Dr. Zumwalt graduated at the top of his class from Midwestern, where he achieved his life-long dream of becoming a doctor, ultimately becoming a Doctor of Physical Therapy. After graduation, Dr. Zumwalt went to work for the Seattle Mariners as part of the medical staff.

Dr. Zumwalt’s vision for Lighthouse is to serve the community by promoting injury prevention, holistic wellness, and offering a conservative alternative to the traditional medical model. The traditional model of sustaining an injury, going to physical therapy, and then getting surgery just isn’t cutting it. Dr. Zumwalt, and supporting doctors/staff, work to prevent injury through biomechanical assessment and treatments using state of the art technology.

Going through life with pain and discomfort can be disheartening.

But finding relief and achieving your physical goals feels impossible.

  • You’ve tried medications and treatments in the past that haven’t worked.
  • You’re frustrated by your lack of progress.
  • You think you can achieve your goals on your own — but it hasn’t worked for you so far.
  • You’re close to giving up and accepting pain as a part of your life.
