OUR STORY

EA Therapeutic Health (originally ExercisAbilities) was founded in 2011.  In 2015, EA was converted to a 501(c)3 organization with one goal in mind: to help people in the community live healthy, happy, and independent lives beyond the limits of insurance coverage for Physical Therapy. Led by Melanie Brennan, Founder and CEO, this goal was threaded into each aspect of programming.

Fast forward over a decade, and EA Therapeutic Health is a powerhouse rehabilitation and adaptive fitness facility for people of all ages and abilities to focus on their health, fitness, independence, and mobility goals. When you choose EA, you'll have access to a safe and accessible place to receive physical therapy both within and beyond what insurance covers. Your journey to lifelong health and wellness continues here!

OUR PURPOSE

Mission: We empower people of all ages with physical health challenges to lead healthy, active, and independent lives. 

Vision: At EA, we provide equitable lifelong access to safe and effective physical health improvement solutions designed to achieve optimal quality of life by improving the health and independence of children and adults living with neurological or physical health conditions. 

Values:
Partnership – Working together for healthy living.
Inclusion – Providing equal care for all.
Innovation – Creating individualized plans with the best in experience, science, and technology.
Positivity – Building an environment where possibilities become reality.
