About Us

With more than 30 years of combined experience, Michael Betlach and Ryan Senkarik founded Elite Physical Therapy in 2009. They started the company because they were determined to create a physical therapy clinic with unsurpassed quality of care by:

•  Maintaining low patient to therapist ratios and ensuring that the same therapist sees the client on every visit
•  Hiring only the finest rehab specialists and having licensed physical therapists and physical therapist assistants provide all aspects of patient care
•  Creating a private, comfortable, and luxurious environment
•  Providing patients with treatment techniques that have been proven to be effective
•  Maintaining continuing education as a top priority to stay up to date on the latest research
•  Brilliant customer service
