About totalPHYSIO


How are we different

Located in Raanana, totalPHYSIO is dedicated to the pursuit of excellence in orthopedics, sports and spine rehabilitation.


Led by Dr. David Joffe, totalPHYSIO actively combines cutting edge technology with old fashioned caring. A thorough in-depth evaluation is part of every patient’s initial visit. We then craft preventative and rehabilitation exercise programs to uniquely fit your needs.  Once the course of treatment has been determined, we focus on hands-on care, patient education, corrective exercises and self-care treatments that will enable the patient to become independent of our services.


totalPHYSIO operates according to international standards and keeps apprised of the most advanced and accepted treatment approaches in manual therapy and exercise rehabilitation.


Unlike many larger clinics, our patients are seen one at a time and on time!
