FYZICAL Finds Balance in Medical Space | FranchiseTimes.com
Balance issues are big business in healthcare and an increasingly serious problem as the U.S. population gets older, grayer and less sure-footed. With more facets of traditional healthcare being franchised every year, Fyzical Therapy and Balance Centers’ rapid growth is a reflection that an increasing cohort of independent doctors are seeing value in converting to a franchise system, rather than staying on their own in an unsteady medical landscape.
CEO Brian Belmont was with Planet Fitness corporate before joining Florida-based Fyzical in early 2018. He was drawn to Fyzical by his affinity for founder Jim Abrams and the rest of the leadership team, and characterized the business as an inspiring brand with massive growth potential.
“We change people’s lives every day,” Belmont said. “We have folks that, especially through balance and our vestibular therapy, who couldn’t work for months if not years and, through some of our diagnosis and ultimately our treatments, help them get back into an independent life. And when you see that happen right in front of you, it’s an amazing thing.”
