About Us

At Florida Physio, we believe that physical therapy can be done better.

Our clients needs are put first with an individualized experience provided during every visit. This approach creates a dynamic where clients achieve the goals they wish to achieve faster. Our physical therapists are Board Certified. You can read more about what Board Certification is and its requirements, HERE..

This distinction has been shown in research that individuals have better health care outcomes with less money and less visits (see research here). All of our appointments start on time, are typically 1 hour, and ALWAYS 1 on 1 with a Doctor of Physical Therapy. No physician referral is required. At Florida Physio, our prescription is movement and manual therapy so that you can meet your goals faster.
