About Dr. Frank Allen
Dr. Allen was born in Jacksonville and raised in Jacksonville Beach, Florida. Growing up, he was heavily involved in both club and school soccer all the way through graduating high school. In 2010, he graduated with honors from the University of North Florida with a Bachelor’s in Exercise Science. Then he immediately transitioned into the Doctor of Physical Therapy program at UNF. After graduating with a doctorate in physical therapy he began working as an outpatient therapist in the fall of 2013. He has practiced outpatient orthopedic physical therapy with focuses on manual therapy and sport-specific rehabilitation since then.
In September of 2020, he and his wife moved to Sarasota, FL and he is looking forward to helping out the Southwest Florida community!
Why Is Dr. Allen Different?
Dr. Allen hopes to revolutionize how physical therapy is perceived by the general population. He aims to do this by practicing as an injury prevention advocate rather than under the traditional model of physical therapy which treats patients after an injury, surgery or loss of function has occurred. Of course, he will absolutely work with anyone who has suffered an injury, had a surgery or otherwise lost function in some capacity. He wants to educate people, however, that taking measures to prevent injury or loss of function is much more effective, less costly and less straining on one's quality of life.
He also develops relationships with every one of his patients that separates him from your typical therapist or doctor. He sees significantly improved treatment outcomes through consistently showing his patients that he cares about their health, well-being and quality of life.
Why Did He Start Your Place PT?
In 2018, with a little help and encouragement from his wonderful wife, he realized that opening his own practice was the only way he could consistently treat patients the way he felt they deserved to be treated. He strongly believes that every patient should be treated in a 1-on-1 manner. This yields unparalleled quality of care, results and overall patient satisfaction. This style of treatment is very rare in the traditional outpatient clinic setting. After 7 years of working in a clinic, Dr. Allen grew frustrated by the expectation to see 2-3 patients every hour because this limited his ability to provide the care that these paying patients deserved. So, he started Your Place PT - a mobile physical therapy company that provides private PT in the comfort of our patient's homes, offices, gyms or other locations. Your Place PT truly prioritizes the patient and ensures the ability to deliver a premier product by offering private, 1-on-1 treatment carried out by the same therapist for the duration of the episode of care.
Your Place Physical Therapy is owned and operated by Jacksonville native Dr. Frank Allen. You will see him every session, never another therapist. He also makes himself available for questions or consultations outside of normal business hours - weekends included. This level of personalized care yields unparalleled results that far exceed those from pain pills, injections or other physical therapy providers.
No Referral Required
Your Place Physical Therapy accepts referrals from doctors to begin treatment. However, you DO NOT need a referral to begin physical therapy today! Dr. Allen can treat you for up to 30 days prior to requiring physician referral. This is a right under Florida law known as Direct Access.
