About Healthy Movement Physical Therapy and Wellness and Dr. Chelsea Walter
Healthy Movement Physical Therapy and Wellness, LLC is a mobile, concierge PT, and wellness practice founded by Dr. Chelsea Walter in 2020. This practice was born out of wanting to help people in a way that was lacking with traditional physical therapy. Chelsea spent five years working in an outpatient PT clinic for a local hospital network. During this time, she learned that the insurance-based model squeezed too many patients into one day and left the therapist minimal personal time with the client. The choice to go out-of-network was easy. Outside of the corporate model and without insurance dictating care, she is now able to give clients the attention they deserve and to treat them as more than just an injury or another insurance claim.
