FYZICAL is one of the top performing private practices in the country

FYZICAL Therapy & Balance Centers – formerly Gold Coast Physical Therapy is Palm Beach County’s leading provider of orthopedic physical therapy, post-operative rehabilitation, balance/dizziness therapy, fall prevention, injury prevention, & sports rehabilitation. Founded in Palm Beach County in 1998 by Mike Graves, it has grown into one of the top performing private practices in the country.

Graves takes a holistic approach to finding industry-related solutions. “Our current healthcare system is struggling and will require a shifted mind set from episodic treatment to true preventative and holistic-based care. This will not only lead to greater health, wellness and lifelong vitality but also decreased costs to an ailing system.”


Every day Graves strives for his company to follow this notion and remember that “FYZICAL is an organization driven by purpose and values. Our core purpose is to prevent needless suffering and do all in our power to help our clients flourish. Our teams work tirelessly to assure the adoption of this mindset! It’s a cause worth fighting for.”

The FYZICAL Team is the epitome of great teamwork. I came in 3 months ago with terrible shoulder and arm nerve pain and no use, and I am leaving with very little pain and much better range of motion with enough range to handle day to day activities. Great work!

Thank you -Linda M
