Dr. Ismael Gallo

Baseball Flows

About

Dr. Gallo was drafted by the Los Angeles Dodgers in the 20th round of the 1996 draft.  He played 5 minor league seasons finishing his career with a .300 batting average.  After his professional baseball career concluded, Dr. Gallo received a bachelor’s in Kinesiology from California State University, Fullerton.  Thereafter, Dr. Gallo enrolled in the Doctor of Physical Therapy program at Loma Linda University.  In 2010, Dr. Gallo graduated from Loma Linda University.  The following year he was accepted into the Kaiser Permanente Orthopedic residency program, which is a highly sought-after post doctorate program that is limited to 30 participants nationwide.  For the past ‪10 years Dr.‬ Gallo has been the sports specialist at Kaiser Permanente Riverside with emphasizes on baseball athletes.  Dr. Gallo’s story is very inspirational because it is a prime example of how baseball can develop great life skills, which Dr. Gallo utilized to go from High School dropout to Doctor. Dr. Gallo’s passion for baseball and science led him to working with professional players the likes of Tommy Pham.

In my experience, I have found that baseball players are training very rigid movement patterns, which can be causing injury or inefficient performance. Having played baseball and studied the science and medical side at a high level, Dr. Gallo provides parents with a great filter of what can prevent injury and increase performance.
