Spotlight on NSU PT

Alumni Spotlight

NSU Alumni Opening Private PT Practice

NSU DPT alumni Eric Otero, PT, DPT and Kyle Moran, PT, DPT have established their own private practice serving active youth and middle aged adults in Broward and Palm Beach counties. The new facility will focus on sports performance. The pair plan to focus on individualized, high quality of care through promotion of the diversity of their physical therapy skills and knowledge. Eric and Kyle feel that is important to showcase all aspects of how physical therapists can address movement dysfunction and optimize patient performance. Eric states, "The only way things will change is if we challenge the system itself, and market ourselves with the different skill sets we provide." Pinnacle Movement and Performance's mission is to provide quality, safe, and cost-effective services to athletes and patients of all levels. By bringing together leaders and experts in physical therapy and performance training, we offer cutting edge services in the community to aid individuals in achieving their maximum potential. Our goal at Pinnacle Movement and Performance is to provide a long term solution to what is keeping you from the things patients enjoy the most. We enter into a commitment to the patient. By providing care in this manner, we can thoroughly determine the best approach to help fulfill patient needs and get people moving better and feeling better.
