Fast Track Physical Therapy and Sports Medicine was founded in 2009 by George Shirley, and is located in Midvale, UT. After working in different physical therapy clinics in this Salt Lake area, George was truly disappointed at the way he consistently saw physical therapy care being delivered. With every clinic that he worked in, the patient spent far more time with the support staff (aides, technicians, exercise physiologists, etc) than he/she did with the actual physical therapist. In all cases, the patient was paying for the care of the physical therapist, and receiving only a small portion of that time with the clinician. It was, and is, for this reason George stepped out on his own to open Fast Track Physical Therapy and Sports Medicine.
Our clinic wholeheartedly believes in providing the best quality of care imaginable, and we believe that is accomplished via our Doctoral-trained Physical Therapists from start to finish. This is the reason why we consistently get patients and clients better, quicker than our competitors – ultimately saving the patient/client money and valuable time. It is the reason we do not employ aides, technicians, or even physical therapy assistants (and those positions can certainly hold value with the right guidance). We have made the purposeful decision to make it our clinic’s priority to produce the highest quality of care versus trying to treat the highest volume of patients/clients. Our ownership and management support this decision 100%, and again, it is what truly sets Fast Track apart from other clinics.
There are good therapists everywhere, and you can get good care at most clinics. If you are looking to make it back to the top of your game; get back to life as quickly as safely possible; ultimately save yourself health care dollars by requiring fewer total physical therapy visits – then Fast Track Physical Therapy and Sports Medicine is the place for you. As our name suggests, we specialize in treating high level athletes; however, we treat people from all walks of life and provide the same quality of care, and customized treatment for everyone.
Out of all of the things that make Fast Track special, the most special thing about Fast Track is the people. Our staff truly care about your needs and realize you likely do not feel your best if you are in need of our services – we have all been in that lobby seat ourselves. You will be met by a genuinely friendly smile each time you come to physical therapy, and you will leave with a smile – knowing you have made progress towards your goals. We love what we do and where we do it, so you will always find us engaged and ready to help you in any way possible – from the front desk to the Doctoral-trained Physical Therapist that you will consistently meet with from start to finish of your treatment. This is why we include you, as patients and clients, in what makes Fast Track so special. In the years that we have been open, there have been so many loyal friendships formed and that continues to be the case. Thank you for coming back when you need us, and sending your friends and family members here when physical therapy is appropriate. That is truly the highest compliment you can give us.
