Jim Lindenauer was born and raised in California. He graduated from Cal-State University Hayward in 1990 with a Bachelor of Science in Physical Education with an Athletic Training/Physical Exercise option. He entered the physical therapy graduate program at Samuel Merritt College in 1990 and graduated in 1993 with a Masters of Physical Therapy degree. After doing a 6-month internship at Kaiser, Jim worked at the Kaiser facility in Pleasanton for 1 year where he became well versed in the Maitland technique of treating spinal dysfunctions. He started Tice Valley Physical Therapy with Don Dendinger in April of 2001 to realize his goal of owning his own practice. This enabled him to provide the care that he felt he was unable to give in other practice settings due to manage care constraints.
Jim is an experienced manual therapist, well trained in myofascial and soft tissue mobilization, nervous system mobilization (using the David Butler technique), and McKenzie techniques. He also is “Back to Golf” trained.
He has continued to educate himself in treating orthopedic injuries and sports rehabilitation by going to continuing education courses and seminars.
Jim enjoys photography and both road and mountain biking and participates in cycling events throughout the year. He is also busy helping raise his 3 children with his wife and is active in supporting their sporting events.
