DR. KYLE PALMER, PT,DPT
I have been involved with human movement and performance my entire life. I had an active childhood playing various sports, and spending time outdoors. My childhood set a foundation of enjoying physical activity, and from an early age I knew I wanted to help people enjoy movement and an active lifestyle.
I started a career as a basketball coach less than one year after graduating high school (I was closer in age to my players than their parents). I continued my coaching career for 15 years working my way up to the college level where I served as an assistant coach at colleges all over the country. I was fortunate to be part of many successful programs winning a National Championship and multiple Conference Championships. Helping my athletes improve their movement and performance both on the gym and in the weight room eventually led me to pursue Physical Therapy as a second career.
I began my Physical Therapy career in a "traditional" outpatient setting and soon discovered that the current model of health care made it nearly impossible for me to take advantage of my education and training, and provide the kind of experience I wanted for my patients.
In the "traditional" model of care I was required to see multiple patients every hour. I would spend 15-20 minutes with them only to send them off to work with assistive personnel for the rest of their appointment. On the rare occasion that I would have time in my schedule that allowed for one-on-one time with a patient we always had greater improvement, or discovered the "missing" element that led to the results they were hoping for.
It was my time in a "traditional" setting that led me to start Performance Health and Wellness. I now have the freedom to work with clients in a manner that allows me to fully use my skills and training to help people achieve their goals and improve their lifestyle.
My goal while working with you at Performance Health and Wellness is to get you back to the things you love to do, or would like to do. I fully believe that the human body is made to perform, and has an amazing ability to adapt and improve no matter your age or situation. The human body in not "fragile" or "broken", you are not "too old", and should not have to give up the things you enjoy because of pain or restriction. Once you decide to work together with me, I will value your time, communicate, educate, and create a plan to bring you hope, growth, and strength.
