Meet Lude Ricard of Sunnyside PT & Wellness in Mira Mesa

Today we’d like to introduce you to Lude Ricard.

Lude, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
I started my PT career journey working in nursing homes and ALf’s. After a very short while, I became dissatisfied with the level of care provided in those settings as well as all the new changes with insurance and reimbursement which made it very difficult to treat my clients the way I wanted which is holistically.

As a result, my only option was to venture out on my own an open my private practice. Sunnyside was born out of sheer grit and a true desire to create a safe and healing atmosphere for people and most importantly to be able to provide quality care that makes a difference

Has it been a smooth road?
Not at all (lol) the entrepreneurial and small business road is very tough, bumpy, uncertain and stressful. As a minority and women owned business, I am competing with large physician owned and hospital own clinics that monopolize the field. It is a very tough road and a lot of us small practice do not survive.

We’d love to hear more about your business.
At Sunnyside we combine the traditional western approach of physical therapy treatment with eastern practices that date thousands of years such as massage therapy, Yoga, chi kung, aromatherapy, music, sound healing and meditation to treat a variety of condition. We are different from other PT clinics in the sense that we offer a customized one on one holistic system to treat our clients

Is our city a good place to do what you do?
Yes, San Diego is the one of the top most beautiful places in the world and a lot of San Diegans are health conscious.
