About us


Athlete Restoration Co. is a direct pay “out-of-network” performance physical therapy clinic. We provide our clientele the highest level of problem-solving healthcare services from the ONLY Fellowship trained Doctors of Physical Therapy in this region of Florida.

This isn’t your grandma’s clinic.

We treat high level athletes and high functioning adults from the West Palm Beach, Wellington, Palm Beach Gardens, and Jupiter areas.

We bring long-term solutions for pain in moving beyond the unproductive, typical physical therapy model by correcting the actual underlying cause of the pain that ultimately prevents you from crushing your active lifestyle that you love.

HOW? Through advanced manual therapy, intentional corrective exercises for your sport, and improving movement patterns.

We want our patients to know that we have their best interests at heart. We also want to be a resource for our community, coaches, athletes, and trainers around the nation.

Why We Do It

The ARC Difference

Athlete Restoration Co. was founded on the belief that the PATIENT COMES FIRST. Healthcare quality is at an all time low and is dictated by insurance companies. TIME while you’re healthy is the most valuable resource we all have. Not only do people spend their money on healthcare but they also spend their time. A person can make money back, but they can’t get their time back.

Athlete Restoration Co. values the time it takes for YOU to get back in the game with your dynamic Lifestyle doing the activities you Love.

This isn’t your standard, inefficient physical therapy model. Our goal is for YOU to get back to 100% in the least amount of time, money, and visits as possible.

Here’s What Our Patients Have To Say

5 star

Doctor Kyle is amazing! I came to Kyle after dealing with some SI joint dysfunction and pain for about a month and within just a couple visits and exercises that he shared with me I was feeling better and back to the gym with no issues.

Kyle truly knows his stuff and takes his time to educate his patients on what is going on with their injury and the plan of action to get you better!



5 star

After meniscus surgery and a traumatic pregnancy I was very nervous to get back into working out. 4 months postpartum Dr.Kyle made me feel confident I would get to do all the things I loved to again with no pain. He showed me the skills I needed in order to prevent Injury now and in the future, proper technique and knowledge are what he is all about! “Motion is lotion!”
Thank you Dr.Kyle


5 star

Before coming to Athlete Restoration, I was convinced that I would always be limited on the activities I could do or exercises I could perform due to chronic lower back issues. Now I’m back in the gym with a renewed purpose and strategy. Thanks to my newly developed core stability, I’m no longer afraid to chase my kids around for fear of a back spasm putting me in bed for a week.
Thank you Dr. Kyle for your amazing practice!

So I tweaked my back in a CrossFit workout… I took time off lifting and thought that it would get better. It didn’t. I reached out to Athlete Restoration and was able to get evaluated that week. 10 sessions later, my back pain is gone and I’m moving better than I have in years. The focus on addressing the root of the problem was a game changer.
