History of Physical Edge:
A Davis fixture since 2003, Physical Edge has been voted the city’s best provider of physical therapy by readers of The Davis Enterprise.
Formerly located on Lake Boulevard in West Davis, Physical Edge moved to Drew Avenue in South Davis in 2006, bringing its entire staff together and providing owners Mathew and Marianne Moore – Davis residents since childhood – an opportunity to expand their services. Currently, the business comprises seven physical therapists, a physical therapy assistant, a chiropractor and fitness staff.
“We rehabilitate using a functional movement model.” says Marianne Moore. “The system promotes collaboration between performance and rehabilitation professionals through the use of two tools – the Functional Movement Screen and the Selective Functional Movement Assessment.
“Both tools evaluate movement but are separated by a clear distinct marker. That marker is pain. If movement produces pain, the individual would be sent through SFMA. Is pain is not present, the FMS is the appropriate tool, which is used primarily by personal trainers and strength coaches”
Physical Edge also prides itself on being a teaching facility, working with several universities to provide 12-week clinical instructions and mentorship programs to physical therapy students.
“We would like to thank our wonderful clients and patients who voted for us and support our business,” Moore says. “We are truly touched and look forward to serving our community for many years to come.”
