SpineZone

San Diego, California

Dr. Kamshad Raiszadeh, an orthopedic spine surgeon, established SpineZone in 2005 to develop the best aspects of non-operative treatment in an atmosphere of empowerment to maximize the body’s own healing capacity. With this program, many fewer patients have required surgery, and the ones who underwent surgery had much better long term results. Through the 4 clinics Dr. Raiszadeh built in San Diego he learned that with appropriate education, focused strengthening and postural treatment we can decrease the rate of injections and surgery while significantly improving the function and satisfaction of patients.

ReQuest Physical Therapy

Florida

ReQuest’s Mission: Reinvent physical therapy to not only treat the diagnosed orthopedic issue, but also provide a comprehensive plan for lifelong wellness.

Every business has a story about how it began, someone who had a vision based on a moment, an event, or an experience that would shape the foundation of the business. ReQuest is no different, inspired by a knee injury sustained in a sparring session that would change the practice of physical therapy in Gainesville.

In 1986, Gainesville Health & Fitness owner and ReQuest founder Joe Cirulli injured his knee during a sparring session that would lead to surgery and physical therapy. After weeks of lifting sandbags, he decided that he could do better on his own believing there was a more modern way to strengthen his muscles and a more inspiring environment in which to recover. His passion to make this kind of physical therapy a reality started ReQuest with just one therapist and a medical testing machine called the lumbar extension. The goal was to eliminate spine pain.
