M. Kay Hanson PT, DPT opened TheraFit Physical Therapy in November 17th, 2003. After working in home health for 7 years in the North Alabama area, she recognized a need for an outpatient physical therapy center in the Meridianville/Hazel Green area because people were traveling 15 plus miles to the nearest outpatient facility. This distance was a hardship for many of her elderly patients. She credits her final decision to leave her job and pursue private practice to her father in law and mother in law. She said they believed in her work ethic and pursuit of making people “better”. Kay reports God has given her gifts for the love of people and being a good diagnostician-seeing the details that may be causing physical pain outside of the obvious. Kay expanded TheraFit Physical Therapy in 2014 to Park City/Fayetteville, TN where she brought another choice for quality physical therapy. She believes TheraFit’s 15 years of success first and foremost is God’s guidance in her decisions even when she was the most unsure, the long-term wonderful staff, and the long-term patients that believed in TheraFit’s team approach for quality and personal care. Our patient’s personal testimonials to others have been the best marketing tool we could have ever asked for over the last 15 years.
