about us

welcome to Back 2 Normal

Welcome to Back 2 Normal. We are excited that you have chosen us as a partner for your injury management, performance enhancement and total wellbeing. At Back 2 Normal, healing for the body meets performance for life. Helping individuals recover from injury and maximizing performance has been my life’s work and passion. I created Back 2 Normal to make a difference in people’s lives by restoring hope, accelerating healing and fostering total body wellbeing.

More than 25 years of experience has taught me that many things can impact a person’s ability to recover and optimize their health. Taking time to find the true cause of an injury or illness, listening with intent, and collaborating with our team, the patient and other health professionals is what sets us apart. Outstanding customer service is our hallmark. Our team of experts are invested in you – and take pride in being your health and performance advocates.

We truly look forward to working with you, and we know you will enjoy your experience with us.

I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel

-Maya Angelou
