Next Step Physical Therapy was established in 2005 as an aquatic physical therapy clinic for high level patients including neurological injuries, geriatrics and disabled veterans.

The clinic is available due to illness in the family and is offered as a comprehensive build out, a contract with the Veterans administration and a Medicare number.  We have repeat business every year with those suffering from progressive and chronic illness which represents approximately 30 patients. Due to the circumbstances we are motivated and offer the practice at 75K. Owners will hold 30% of the paper if neccesary and for the right person.

The clinic 2000 sq. ft. space has two bathrooms, three showers, and a gym area including equipment, an exam room and front desk area.  The pool is dual propulsion endless pool with automated feed and new, Liner, heater, filter and pump. The pool area contains a poolside aquatic lift, 6 tons of dehumidification, heat and AC.  All the mechanicals were installed in the build out including 200A service, 1 inch water line and a 2 inch gas line.

Next Step PT has established a reputation among local hospitals and physicians of trust, reliability and outcome. Our referrals come from our patients and 400+ doctors whom we have proven ourselves too through patients explaining us to them verses the typical doctor referral to a clinic. This has kept us viable.

Consider this to expand an existing practice with an aquatic satellite, or start a new practice with built in patients, contracts and referrals to grow.
