The Performance difference

 

We take an innovative approach to helping your patients achieve optimal health. Our providers take a unique approach through the Four Pillars of Optimal Health through exercise, recovery, nutrition and stress management, while coordinating with the patient's healthcare providers to ensure synergy across their care.

We are an extension of your team

 

At Performance Optimal Health, the success of our patients is rooted in the partnership between all healthcare providers involved. We partner with the current providers involved in the patient's care, as well as assembling additional experts, when necessary, that meet their specific needs. Our mission is to help you help your patients live their optimal life.

Education built around our partners

 

Teachers and Scholars is one of our core values, instrumental in delivering best-in-class care. We partner with healthcare providers to lecture on cutting-edge health topics such as the benefits of minimally invasive spinal procedures, coordinate skills labs for our providers (most recently on treatment approaches in pelvic health therapy) and host health seminars on topics such as nutrition for the high performing athlete.

Evidence-based approach

 

The model of care delivered by our experts is both value and evidence-based. Each client is treated with an individualized approach, specific to their health goals, supported by credible research.

By leading with evidence based approaches, we achieve superior outcomes for our patients and partners.

Featured Specialists

Our team consists of sports and orthopedic board certified physical therapists, strength and conditioning experts, certified Schroth and Dry Needling therapists, as well as pelvic health and concussion management specialists.

As teachers and scholars, continuous education and clinical development is central to our mission, and our physical therapists are always pursuing additional knowledge and experience.

Testimonials

testimonial

Performance is the best physical therapy group in the business. Everyone is super knowledgeable; they get to the root of problems and solve them. My family and I have been going for over ten years for our injuries and they are always the best to deal with. Additionally, they are connected with the best doctors and that's huge when needing to receive the best care. Can't recommend them enough.

Performance is the best PT place ever!! I'm a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu black belt and have been injured for many, many years. I have been to many PT places before, and I only found relief and real results when I started doing my PT with Performance, they really know what they are doing... They also have cryotherapy which is also amazing and really good for recovering. Thank you guys, I'm very happy and fortunate to be treating my injuries with you. I feel great for the first time in 8 years of pain!

I needed outpatient PT after my total knee replacement surgery, and I selected Performance Optimal Health based on location as it is easily accessible from US1 and I am happy to say it was a great choice. The facility is well-run, the staff is very friendly but most importantly, the vigorous therapy I'm receiving from the team is exactly what I need to help build back my strength and balance. I'm a senior and the team knows the right amount of the level of activity I need to support my age and endurance.
