STUDENT LOAN ASSISTANCE
Performance Physical Therapy recognizes that student loans are a big challenge for many Physical Therapists, with DPTs having some of the highest student loan debt upon graduation in the U.S. To help with this challenge, Performance has teamed up with Gradifi to create a student loan repayment program that all our physical therapists have access to immediately upon hire. Performance Physical Therapy’s student loan paydown program through Gradifi can help physical therapists potentially cut years off of student loans and save thousands of dollars!

September of Move
Each year our staff loves to participate in September of Move, a month-long fitness competition that gets our clinics moving, starting healthy habits, and competing to be the best. Together we walk, bike, swim, climb, plank, jump, lift, and squat ur way through the month to push ourselves to be the healthiest we can. Pirate Ruby challenges us to be the strongest and compete with other clinics to see who comes out on top- and who doesn't love a little friendly competition?
