After working for traditional physical therapy clinics for years, I found myself spending more time filling out paperwork or on the phone with insurance companies justifying the need for care on behalf of my patients than spending time with patients. The idea of someone who is not involved in the direct care of patients dictating the care they should receive frustrated me.
Patients take a lot of time out of their lives to come to physical therapy and often wish that we were closer to their home or office.
Juggling four-to-six patients at once was overwhelming didn’t allow me to deliver the quality of care I envisioned coming out of school.
Over the years, patients that have graduated from physical therapy experienced relapses and came back for the same problem. It frustrated me that these relapses occurred and we were not able to keep them resilient and robust.
Those frustrations led me to found Empowerment Physical Therapy in 2018. I set out to empower patients with the tools and knowledge to live happy and healthy lives. Empowerment Physical is built on the following foundations:
- Patients come first. They are in charge of the care they receive, not insurance companies.
- Therapists treat one patient at a time for at least 60 minutes, in the comfort of your home or office.
- Graduates of physical therapy are given an aftercare plan to remain robust and avoid relapse.
