As they were running toward the finish line, it hit me... this is it! this is why I love my job! 

When T-Zero Physio was first started, I was told over and over again how important it was to know the "why?" behind things to help push me to be my best and also help prevent burnout. 

I come from a PT background working in a very busy clinic that worked primarily with people who had surgeries. Although it was a great opportunity to learn and gain experience following grad school I felt like there was something missing. Due to insurance restrictions, we were forced to "discharge" clients at about 90% of where they were prior to surgery and in my opinion at about 75-80% of what they were really capable of. 

Each time I went through this experience I was left frustrated... first, because I wanted to help people NOT have surgery and secondly, because I wanted people to reach their true potential not what an insurance company is willing to pay for. 

In each of our stories we're left with a critical moment and decision... mine came in 2016 when the feeling described above became too much to continue with the status quo. A moment that ultimately led to starting T-Zero Physio in January of 2017. 

What I realized was that the feeling that I was having was a feeling that many of my friends and clients were having as well. They were looking for someone else to believe that they were as capable as they felt and were still able to compete in sports and life. It was this decision that led me to working with some incredible people and ultimately the finishers shoot of the Boulder Ironman where several of our clients were greeted with, "You are an Ironman!"  

As I felt the emotion and pride of seeing my new friends accomplish something truly remarkable it hit me... this is it! This is why I love my job. It's to help remove physical barriers for people so they can go on and do remarkable and inspiring things. It's WHY we do things the way we do them at T-Zero and don't compromise, because we believe that you're right when you say and believe that you're capable of and deserve the best. 

"This is my second go around at physical therapy after tearing my labrum again and needing shoulder surgery a second time. Working with T-Zero Physio has been a game changer! My shoulder has felt stronger and more stable than ever before. I would highly recommend T-Zero Physio to anyone in need of physical therapy services! "

""I started a pretty active workout schedule about 6 months ago. A few months in, I started having shoulder and lower back pain. I wanted to keep working out, so I consulted with Dr. Kevin. He has been great. He came up with a plan, we discussed goals (including being able to continue my program while rehabbing) and I feel great now. I was able to stop the pain and actually increase to working out 6 days a week now. I highly recommend his practice. He got to the root of my problems. He didn't just treat the area that hurt. I feel really confident I know how to stay on top of my pain issues now. Thank you!!""
