Accelerate Therapy and Performance to celebrate 10 years, announces new location

Accelerate Therapy and Performance of Salisbury celebrates 10 years and looks to the future with a new location in downtown Salisbury.

“Ten years in business fills my heart with gratitude to all our patients, friends, family members, health care providers, and companies who has come to see us or sent someone our way,” owner Delaine Fowler said. “When I started my company, I wanted to provide five star hands-on care and spend the time needed to truly understand patients problems so we could fix their issue and get them back to normal. I am so glad to continue to provide the highest standard in physical therapy care to all of our patients.”

Fowler said the new location at Innes and Lee streets will not be completed for at least another year as the company renovates a warehouse into a state-of-the-art, friendly environment for patients.

“One reason to move is we are growing thanks to our loyal patients sending their friends to see us, whether it’s to heal from a sports injury or recover from a back strain,” Fowler said. “The other is we see the need for a space that nurtures healing from all aspects including aesthetics.

“Many PT clinics feel too clinical and not comfortable enough to feel like a healing environment,” she said. “We have done a good job in our current space, but being part owner and the designer of the new space gives me more freedom to create the perfect healing environment for our patients.”

Fowler said the new location will grow the injury prevention team.

On Sept. 24, Accelerate Therapy will host a grand opening for its downtown Lexington location. On Sept. 25, it will celebrate its 10 years in Salisbury.
