Not only do we specialize in orthopedics and sports, but we specialize in female athletes specifically. We will approach your post operative ACL rehab with an expertise you won’t find anywhere else.
One of our patients said, “As one goes through life, it is very likely that at one point in time one will need physical therapy. I have, for sure! I have been to many different physical therapy centers, and have, for the most part, had a good experience. However, Girl Fit Physical Therapy is BY FAR the best experience I have had when it comes to helping me overcome one of those relevant challenges. Their level of expertise, active listening, empathy, overall patient/customer focus, is second to none. The expert team of therapists in this center is one that is committed with the end result, takes nothing for granted and really delivers enormous value to anyone lucky enough to become their patient.”
What do we discuss at our weekly staff meetings? Research. What do we chat about on our lunch breaks? Research. What do we read on the beach? That’s right, research! (We’re really not kidding.) Evidence based practice is constantly evolving and we promise to stay up to date in order to help you achieve the very best outcomes.
You are an individual and your care should be too. You will likely have a post operative protocol and we will keep you on track with everything you should be accomplishing. We will communicate with your physicians and even your coaches if you would like. But we will also go above and beyond that to make sure every aspect of your recovery is tailored specifically to you. We will listen to you. We will look at you as the whole athlete and whole person that you are.
One of our patients recently shared, “I had an AMAZING experience with Girl Fit Physical Therapy! As a professional Dancer and Dance Educator, Girl Fit tailored to my unique needs and abilities. My Physical Therapist Michaela Main began each session with asking “how do you feel?,” setting the standard for a collaborative and honest process. From there, she poured motivation, care and detail into my treatment.”
Our amazing staff and patients create a unique, positive, and empowering environment. You will see girls and women at every stage of their rehabilitation and every stage of life.
“My daughter feels safe and at-home- both physically and mentally- at Girl Fit. And that is priceless”, said a Girl Fit parent.
You can feel it when you walk in the door. It is bright and open. It is both calming and energizing. You’ll see original art on the walls instead of medical posters. You’ll see smiles and signs of relief. We want you to feel that comfort, support, and positive energy throughout your ACL rehab. We want Girl Fit be a place where you feel at home. But, we’re also happy to see you in your own home through Telehealth physical therapy when needed.
