MotionWorks Celebrates 10 Years!

Dear MotionWorks Family,

It’s our anniversary here at MotionWorks!  Not only is it our anniversary this month, it is our 10th anniversary!  We first opened our doors at 1158 Westowne Drive in Neenah on October 8, 2011.  It’s funny thinking back, because I’m fairly certain I was more worried about how I would get this business up and running in a healthcare market accustomed to going wherever the doctor sent them for physical therapy, than imagining this day so far in the future.  Ten years later, I look back and see how the revolution of patient-centered care changed all of that.  Today, most individuals realize that they have a choice in where they go for all of their healthcare needs, including choosing MotionWorks Physical Therapy for the treatment of orthopedic, spine, and sports medicine issues.

Over the years, we didn’t stop at simply providing the highest quality physical therapy services in the Fox Valley at convenient appointment times and without a long wait to be seen.  We added unique programming yet to be replicated anywhere else, like our Urgent Headache Care Program.  We also added dry needling, pediatric physical therapy, and have become known as the place to go for complex physical therapy problems that have not been solved elsewhere.  Our on-line resources on our website are extensive, with hundreds of articles covering the most common sports injuries and issues with easy to follow prevention and treatment tips and step by step exercise instructions.  So many articles, we now have a searchable website to make topics easy to find and access.  Our website reaches over 10,000 people worldwide each month.  We have answered over 50 questions in our Ask a PT newsletter segment, also available on our website at  We rolled out our MotionWorks Physical Therapy YouTube channel and are slowly building our video catalog.  We are proud of the reputation we have built so far, with two of our Doctors of Physical Therapy being named Wisconsin Physical Therapists of the Year.  And we are not done yet!

As we celebrate our 10th anniversary over the next year, we will be unveiling some new, innovative, and dare we say, fun and entertaining programming that will both inform and delight our MotionWorks fans.  We are also planning a celebration as well next summer with all of you!  And we are continuing to build our online resources on our website, Facebook, and YouTube.  One of the best parts of opening MotionWorks are the relationships we have built with local providers and our patients.  Our patients are our entire reason for existing, and their success is truly our success and inspires us to continue on each day.  We are so thankful for our patients’ loyalty over the years and their willingness to tell their family and friends, neighbors, and colleagues about the personalized care they have received at MotionWorks.  If anyone were to ask the secret to our success as an independent physical therapy practice, it would have to be because of our exceptional patients!  Thank you for your continued support.  We love reading your emails, letters, cards, and comments on our Facebook page.  Thank you also to our fantastic physical therapists and receptionists/medical billers who have helped us achieve this milestone anniversary and help build our success as we venture into new projects in the future!  While we have come so far already, we are excited about how much more we have yet to accomplish. 

Anniversary cheers to 10 years!
