Tim Waters

Tim Waters (Owner / Physical Therapist) has been an Orthopaedic Certified Specialist in Physical Therapy since 2005. Additionally, he has been certified in Mechanical Diagnosis and Treatment by the internationally recognized McKenzie Institute since 2001.

After graduating from the University of Cape Town in 1993, Tim worked in Texas before moving to Hawaii in 2001. Until becoming a partner in Hands-On Physical Therapy in 2006, he worked as a contractor for the US Navy and Marine Corps, gaining valuable experience working in the field of orthopaedics and sports-injuries.

He has extensive experience in post-surgical rehabilitation, particularly knee and shoulder conditions. Working with military members provided the opportunity to not only treat post-surgical injuries such as anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction, meniscectomies, sub-acromial decompressions, SLAP repairs, but also less commonly seen conditions such as posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) reconstruction, patella tendon repair and distal patella re-alignment surgeries.

In 2005 his high quality of service to the US Navy was officially recognized when he was named “Senior Civilian contractor of the Year”. Tim’s principles of providing top quality patient care led him to becoming a partner in Hands-On Physical Therapy, where this level of patient attention and quality service is a core value.

Tim’s interest in physical therapy was first sparked after suffering a serious knee injury in rugby, resulting in much rehabilitation. This has facilitated an ability to empathize with sportspersons suffering similar injuries and having to undergo physical therapy.

Tim enjoys time with his family, especially traveling, camping, hiking and surfing.

Sierra Rehrer

Sierra Rehrer joined our team at Hands-On Physical Therapy in January, 2018, with her main interest being to advance her career in Pelvic Health Physical Therapy.

She has undergone extensive training under Jolene Smith at Hands-On, and is on her way to getting her pelvic health certification through the American Physical Therapy Association. Her hope is to help women locally, as well as internationally, with her skill set and knowledge of the pelvic floor and women’s health both pre- and post-partum.

Sierra specializes not only in women’s health, but also in orthopedics. Her desire to become a physical therapist was sparked when observing a family friend in Indiana who had helped her dad recover from a serious work-related back injury.

She pursued a B.S. degree from Indiana State University for Exercise Science, and then moved to Carlsbad, CA, for Physical Therapy school, since it was her desire to live close to the ocean and learn to surf, while earning her Doctorate of Physical Therapy degree.

Sierra graduated physical therapy school from the University of Saint Augustine in San Marcos, CA, in August of 2013. Since then, she has worked in various physical therapy settings, including out-patient orthopedics, in-patient acute care, home health care, and now specializing in pelvic health, practicing in California, Utah, and now Hawaii.

She lives on the island of Oahu with her husband, Chris, who is a physician assistant. She enjoys being outdoors and being active, including surfing, yoga, running, hiking, swimming, camping and fishing with her husband and friends. She is involved in local and international humanitarian outreach with “Surfing the Nations”, a non-profit located in Wahiawa, Hawaii.
