Our Approach

What makes PT2Go different from other clinics? Simply put; we put you first and can work with your schedule to allow for optimal outcomes. You have the physical therapist’s undivided attention, as we provide one on one treatment. Conducting our treatment in a setting that best suits your schedule and rehab. This could be in the clinic, at home, at work, outdoors, in your backyard, on the beach, you name it! This allows for much more creativity and functionality. We can work with you in more practical settings, such as your home, work, or place of recreation. Our passion for providing successful outcomes and contributing to active lifestyles is what drives PT2Go.

Our Story

The idea of PT2Go was first thought of while the owner was obtaining his Doctorate at Old Dominion University and participating in Telehealth research studies to under-served and rural regions. The idea was expanded and put into action after requests to treat musical artists at a venue in Virginia Beach. He realized a growing need for patients traveling through or vacationing in the area. His experience in many different settings made him also understand the burden placed on the patient’s and their families when injuries occurred in regards to making time to go to physical therapy. His experience working with local recreational, high school, and collegiate athletes and teams made him recognize the benefit of providing strength and conditioning consultation, injury prevention screening, and supervised exercise or personal training at their facility, practice field, or home gym.  Lastly; as many physical therapists can concur, some insurance companies limit our ability to treat what needs to be treated effectively. Along with accepting major insurances, PT2Go provides low cash rates to those restricted by what insurance dictates. PT2Go is proud to serve the southeastern Virginia and northeastern North Carolina regions with in-person visits as well as all over the United States with Telehealth consultations.
