"The part can never be well unless the whole is well" - Plato
At FIT Physical Therapy, we promote wellness with every single patient we treat. While your immediate goal may be pain relief or recovery of function, every patient's long-term goal should be to participate in a wellness program that is tailored to your needs.
Whether your wellness goals include weight loss, improving bone density, increasing strength, bettering your balance or just feeling more energized, FIT PT can help you establish a plan to succeed. Because of our commitment, FIT physical therapy offers both a supervised (with our Wellness techs) and an independent wellness program tailored to the individual needs of our patients.
Our Wellness program is not covered by insurance and is billed at $75 a month for the supervised and $50 a month for the independent program. Our Physical Therapists provide a monthly 30 minute Wellness follow-up to update and modify the exercise programs.
