This is Chris Redgrave for Zions Bank Speaking on Business.

Did you know that women launch businesses at a higher rate than the national average? The number of U.S. businesses grew by 34 percent between 1997 and 2011, while the number of women-owned businesses increased by 50 percent! This is a big deal since experts estimate there are over 8 million women-owned businesses in the U.S. You can add Pinnacle Performance to that list.

Amy Broekemeier (brok-a-meyer) got involved with the company 14 years ago. It was a small physical therapy business until their approach caught hold, and business took off. Today, Pinnacle has grown enough to be housed in a 9,000 square foot clinic in Salt Lake City which more than triples their space!

Many people today are seeking relief from chronic pain so they can live a happy and balanced life. Pinnacle Performance is a clinic that offers physical therapy, rehabilitation and fitness. These therapists specialize in manual physical therapy and intelligent movement. Manual therapy means they use their hands to diagnose, manipulate and mobilize a joint or spinal segment. It's a very specific treatment option. Intelligent movement is a process of strengthening and re-training the body to restore movement.

Amy says all treatment plans start with a full-body assessment. It's important for Pinnacle therapists to understand a patient's needs, so they can develop a personalized treatment plan which also includes diet suggestions. A license therapist provides patients with one-on-one service during each appointment.

Pinnacle Performance offers functional training where patients progress from biomechanical diagnosis and treatment to neuromuscular rehabilitation to power training and sport specific. Their goal is to be prescriptive and progress you in a way that makes sense. Amy says in the market of movement, if you don't follow the biomedical science of movement, complete healing is more difficult.
