What’s in a name? If you ask any expecting parent, it’s a lot. After all, a name is something most people carry with them through their whole lives, and it can have a lot of social implications. For many PT practice owners, their clinics are their babies—which makes choosing the right name even more important. After all, it should be memorable, simple, and something that delivers the right message to the clinic’s target audience. So, to give new practice owners some inspiration—and stir up the creative juices—here’s our list of nine great physical therapy business names:

WebPT HEP - Regular BannerWebPT HEP - Small Banner

1. Joint Ventures Physical Therapy

Based in Boston, this practice employs a multidisciplinary care team—as you may have guessed thanks to the clever word play. As the clinic’s website states, “Our team approach utilizes the best health providers in the fields of physical therapy, chiropractic, fitness, massage, nutrition, and acupuncture.” Now that’s truly a joint venture. (See what I did there?)

2. Lyttle Fox Therapy

This pediatric clinic’s name is as endearing as the population it serves. “Lyttle Fox” is an amalgam of the two owners’ last names, and it’s made our list because it’s not only memorable, but also unique.

3. C.A.R.E. Physical Therapy

Who doesn’t love a good acronym? For one thing, acronyms are often easier to remember than initialisms. And it’s even better when that acronym spells something that’s relevant to the service the business provides. In the case of Chicago-based C.A.R.E. Physical Therapy, the letters in the acronym stand for “Chicago Area Rehabilitation Experts,” so what the team provides—and where they provide it—is literally in the name.

4. Gotham Physical Therapy

Gotham Physical Therapy in New York City is particularly memorable because the practice is not only named for the hometown of the caped crusader, but also entirely dedicated to him. As you can see on the clinic website, the whole office is rather stylishly decked out in all things Batman. It’s certainly a practice worthy of the Dark Knight himself.

5. GO PT

Short, sweet, and straight to the point, GO PT in Seattle doesn’t mince words when it comes to communicating the clinic’s main objective. As the website states, that is, quite simply, “getting you back on the go!”

6. [re+active] physical therapy & wellness

Words that evoke thoughts of movement and health are commonplace for physical therapy clinics, but [re+active] makes the list because of its stylized spin on an old favorite. The name itself is simple, but the aesthetic stylization makes it stand out. (Bonus points for having a great blog on the website.)

7. PT ‘n’ Play Pediatric Physical Therapy

Based in Los Angeles, PT ‘n’ Play Pediatric Physical Therapy has a cute, alliterative title that also provides insight into the clinic’s mission. PT ‘n’ Play’s philosophy is that “children learn best through play,” and that’s reflected quite expertly in the name.

8. Finish Line Physical Therapy

This clinic name conjures up images of athletes gliding down a track toward a length of tape at the end. And that makes a lot of sense, because Finish Line PT focuses on treating endurance athletes like runners and triathletes.

9. Physio2Geaux

This New Orleans-based practice serves cyclists, runners, and triathletes (i.e., people who are always on the go). Physio2Geaux is particularly creative because, as anyone who’s been to NOLA knows, the entire city is infused with French influence. And Physio2Geaux reflects that with its Franco-inspired spelling.


Picking the right name is a weighty decision—whether you’re choosing a name for a child or a physical therapy practice. Ultimately, whatever name you land on can have a much larger impact than you might expect. So, if you’re currently playing the name game with your practice, take a lesson from these creative clinics.

    6 Digital Marketing Mistakes that Will Destroy Your Practice

    In this day and age, it’s nearly impossible to run a successful business without using some form of digital marketing. And yet, as of 2017 nearly a third of small business owners admit to not having a company website. If you’re shocked by that statistic, it’s for good reason. With more and more people turning to the web to find providers and medical advice, rehab therapy practices can’t afford not to hop on the digital marketing bandwagon. …

    Make the Wait Great: Strategies to Refresh Your Reception Area

    The Supremes probably weren’t talking about rehab therapists in their 1966 hit, “You Can’t Hurry Love.” They were right about one thing, though: sometimes, “you just have to wait.” But if the wait is long, it’s easy to lose motivation. And for therapy patients, staying motivated is crucial to treatment success. Plus, to a society of multitaskers, sitting in reception can feel like a waste of valuable time. So, whether you’re revamping your medical waiting room design …

    6 Things I Wish Anyone Would Have Told Me About Being a PT

    I realized I wanted to be a physical therapist after experiencing—and rehabbing—a knee injury while playing collegiate basketball. But until I actually became a PT, I didn’t understand what it really meant to practice physical therapy. A physical therapist not only treats a patient’s injury; he or she treats the whole person. And if that PT is in private practice, he or she also is trying to run a business while staying on top of changing market …
