Sport and Spine founder Phillip Smith and Peak Performance Physical Therapy and Sports Medicine founders Mark Dempsey, Todd Ankenman, and Shaon Fry started their businesses because they felt that the market lacked truly patient-centered outpatient physical therapy. Both companies expanded throughout the state, bringing their superior care to new markets in need of rehabilitation services. These expansions allowed both companies to add many of the best clinicians in the state as partners in the mission to offer cutting edge rehabilitation services throughout Missouri. As the healthcare marketplace changed, it became clear that two respected competitors might serve their communities more effectively as one company.
In November of 2014, Peak Performance Physical Therapy and Sports Medicine and Sport and Spine Rehab joined to form the largest privately owned outpatient physical therapy company in Missouri, PEAK Sport and Spine. This merger combined two companies with roots in the Central Missouri region committed to outstanding, patient-centered physical therapy where clinicians are allowed to base their professional decisions on what is best for the patient. Currently, our ever expanding clinic base includes 25 offices throughout the state of Missouri.
PEAK Sport and Spine strives to provide excellent, cost-effective care for a wide variety of conditions ranging from orthopedic conditions, to vestibular conditions to pain management. The combination of Peak Performance and Sport and Spine has enabled us to bring the strengths of both companies together to offer the widest variety of treatment in the region. Through our new partnership, we are able to offer post surgical rehabilitation, work injury prevention and rehabilitation services, treatment of many neurological conditions, cutting edge manual therapy, superior sports medicine coverage, and outstanding hand rehabilitation. In the future, we plan to continue to expand our services offered to the communities that we serve as well as continue to add new communities to our service area.
