In a world where convenience and personalized care is paramount, INSPIRE PHYSICAL THERAPY AND WELLNESS has been a beacon of hope for older adults in South County and Southeastern Connecticut since opening in 2020, revolutionizing healthcare with their mobile outpatient physical therapy and occupational therapy services.

Its founder, Dr. Shayla Adams, is the driving force behind the company’s success. Determined to make a positive impact on clients’ lives, her unwavering dedication to inspiring older adults is evident in every aspect of their operation. Offering specialty programs catered to specific conditions, as well as emphasizing preventative care and education, INSPIRE rewrites the rules of therapy. This year, Dr. Shayla looks forward to growing in the community with educational talks, training, and groups.

“I often feel like a detective, diagnosing movement dysfunction and designing personalized treatment plans to address them,” shares Dr. Shayla, who brings compassion, encouragement, and deep knowledge to her work. “I get to make a difference in people’s lives by helping them improve their quality of life, whether it’s reducing pain, increasing mobility, or restoring function.”
