Health Masters Had & PT APRIL 2018

Let’s Get Fyzical



s a physical therapist, business owner, and individual, I constantly seek knowledge. I’m always on the hunt for new methodologies and techniques that will provide the best possible outcomes for my patients. All of us at HealthMasters know that, despite our abundant successes, there are endless opportunities for us to grow as clinicians. When I see a chance to better serve our community and to expand our reach and abilities, I’ll jump at it every time. That’s why I’m thrilled to announce that HealthMasters Hand and Physical Therapy Centers is becoming a franchisee for Fyzical, one of the most respected and effective physical therapy collectives in the country! This has been in the works for a while, and I’m thrilled to finally start rolling out the fantastic benefits to our patients and staff. It was a decision that came down to growth — not so much in revenue or numbers, but in our expertise and reach as physical therapists. With this new partnership comes a treasure trove of tried-and-true approaches across the PT field, opening up entirely new avenues to train our therapists and maximize our impact. This is especially true when it comes to Fyzical’s comprehensive fall risk prevention programs. For years, we’ve seen a steady increase in the number of falls per year of elderly individuals, stealing the independence of millions and causing potentially deadly health issues. Fyzical has access to a staggering number of cutting-edge resources for improving patients’ balance. This gives us the foundation to help this massively underserved population in a big way. As I’ve watched the troubling trends in balance issues, I’ve looked far and wide for a strategy that could adequately address this epidemic. Last year, it finally became clear: Fyzical is absolutely the best path forward. The shift should come with widespread positive changes for my team and me, but the real benefit is for our patients. By combining our unique knowledge with the collective data and experience of thousands of physical therapists under the Fyzical umbrella,

our robust skill set grows substantially. In addition, Fyzical’s resources will allow us to offer new screenings for people that will help them not just with rehabilitative treatment, but with their overall health as well. I know my clients will be concerned with the possibility of our clinic going “corporate” and potentially losing the atmosphere that makes HealthMasters such a great place to recover. But the beauty of the Fyzical approach is that we gain all their excellent resources without changing the personality of our practice or staff. We may be bolstering our abilities, but the heart of the business still remains. Personally, I couldn’t be more excited about the transition. It’s been a long time coming. It’s surreal to finally be able to let my team and patients know about these incredible changes on the horizon. Now our team will be able to transform even more lives for the better, providing the tools for a pain-free life. With Fyzical by our side, the future is charged with positivity and possibility.
