Dr. Cynthia Huerta
I spent my childhood in Mexicali, Mexico, before moving to Imperial County in Southern California. After starting my academic journey at a community college, I earned an Associate’s degree as a Physical Therapist Assistant (PTA) in 2016. I then went on to obtain a Bachelor’s degree as a PTA in 2018 while working in an outpatient clinic. As my passion for physical therapy grew, I made the decision to further my education. In 2023, I successfully graduated as a Physical Therapist from the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston, TX. As a PTA, I had the opportunity to work with diverse patient populations, spanning from pediatrics to geriatrics. My experience extended across various healthcare settings, including outpatient clinics, inpatient rehabilitation centers, and skilled nursing facilities. During my transition to becoming a PT as a student, I leveraged my previous experience to enhance my skills and knowledge. This comprehensive approach allowed me to evolve into a well-rounded therapist, fully prepared to address the needs of my future patients.
Empathy, Patience, Compassion and Caring
“Happiness is not something ready-made. It comes from your own actions.” – Dalai Lama
At Excel Physical Therapy, I specialize in treating orthopedic conditions as a physical therapist, providing essential care for our patients.
Something that patients deal with that I would love to fix is related to health insurance to ensure that patients can easily access and afford high-quality healthcare.
As a Physical Therapist, I find fulfillment in treating a diverse range of conditions.
What I love about working at Excel Physical Therapy is how we prioritize personalized care and utilize the 4-Phase Recovery Program.

Outside of work, I find joy in spending quality time with my cat and husband, going on walks and hikes, traveling to explore new places, indulging in cooking and baking, savoring delicious meals, and staying active.
