Philosophy of Care

DifferentInspired Physical Therapy is built on the premise that we can offer a unique healthcare product at an affordable price without compromising our care. We believe that the key to patient care and success is the ability to connect with our patients understanding that an injury not only affects the physical, but the mental, emotional and in some cases the spiritual components of a person.
Our goal, therefore, is to have a positive impact on the lives of our patients, inspiring them to achieve the highest level of function. We believe this can only be accomplished by employing exceptional individuals who not only possess the knowledge necessary for the field of physical therapy, but the passion that is necessary to impact lives. We pledge to give the highest quality, compassionate care that will inspire our patients along the road to recovery.
