4 Ways that Purpose Physical Therapy is unlike any other physical therapist in St. Pete

by | Mar 5, 2021 | Sports Injuries

Purpose Physical Therapy was founded with a simple mission: to offer effective and accessible physical therapy services to fit any schedule. Between insurance constraints and busy calendars, it can be challenging to find effective physical therapy in St. Pete that’s well-suited to your lifestyle – but doing it is crucial to your health and mobility (not to mention that it’s likely to save you both money and time in the long run). At Purpose PT, our flexible models are custom-built with adaptability in mind. Keep on reading to hear directly from our founder and physical therapist, Dr. Ken Clark, about just a few of the features that set us apart.

Making a Difference with a Purpose

Seeing life-changing results doesn’t have to mean disrupting your schedule. Our goal is to be flexible and adaptive as we make tangible progress in your fitness and mobility.

We offer mobile physical therapy.

That means that I can meet you in the convenience of your own home, office, or gym.

Although you know your physical health is a top priority, getting in your car and having to battle through traffic to get to a clinic can be frustrating, time consuming, and inconvenient. By having me come to you, you get to experience all the health benefits of quality, personalized physical therapy without any of the inconvenience.

24/7 access to your personal physical therapist.

At Purpose, you have a licensed Doctor of Physical Therapy who is also 100% dedicated to helping you unlock your full potential, both physically and mentally. This is a journey and a lifestyle, so it’s important to be in it for the long haul. We can connect via phone or email 24/7. This also means you will see the same physical therapist, who is attuned to your progress and goals, every single visit.

One-on-one personalized care

You should never feel rushed or inadequately cared for after your physical therapy appointment, and your only option should not be a therapist who may be working with multiple people at the same time as you. Even if that isn’t the case, many therapists will be locked into the computer screen while you do your exercises because they’re so backed up on paperwork and other admin work. At Purpose, you are the focus during your appointment. Careful attention is paid to your progress on each movement and exercise so that your plan can be adapted accordingly in order to give you the best possible results.

Increased functionality and accountability

In a typical brick and mortar practice, a physical therapist may prescribe you a few exercises on your first day and hope, for one, that you perform them and two, that you do them correctly. The truth is, what you go over in the clinic hardly translates well in the home environment. Without solely relying on fancy – and somewhat unnecessary – equipment, we are able to place an emphasis on the basics. This is important because it allows us to come up with a plan that works with your lifestyle, enabling you to focus on improving your mobility in the settings that work best for you.

Your physical therapy plan begins and ends with your needs, and you don’t have to settle for anything less than that. If you want to learn more about what a customized physical therapy plan entails and get a game plan that’s suited to your needs in place, schedule a free consultation with us.
