Peak Performance Physical Therapy
on West St. Joe Highway near Waverly Rd. isn’t your run of the mill physical therapy clinic. Owner and physical therapist Jill Marlan has 13 years of physical therapy training, as well as experience as a resident instructor for Oakland University’s Orthopedic Manual Physical Therapy Program (OMPT) and MSU’s Kinesiology Program, as well as being a guest lecturer in Oakland U’s OMPT program. In short, she really knows her stuff.
“We would like to be the premier place to go if you’re looking for manual physical therapy,” says Marlan. “A lot of physicians don’t know the difference between physical therapists, and they just recommend patients go to the place closest to their home. We’re educating clients that driving an extra ten minutes is worth it.”
Marlan has the same standards for her physical therapy team. The new, 2,600 square foot office employs two office workers and two physical therapists, both with the same high-level qualifications as Marlan. She opened Peak Physical Therapy with the goal of offering a higher standard of OMPT services to area patients.
“Our staff is very highly skilled,” says Marlan. “There is one other clinic in the state that has the skill level of our clinic. Oakland’s OMPT program is the only one in the country recognized by the American Medical Association.”
A one-time Detroit resident, Marlan chose to open Peak Performance in Delta Township to be a near Grand Ledge
, where she grew up. She intends to further her ties to the community with prevention clinics for local student athletes.
