Our Vision

To help all people obtain their best health by teaching them everything they need to know about controlling their movement system.

Our Philosophy

Your body moves with the help of three main systems that work together simultaneously: the musculoskeletal, neuromuscular and myofascial system.

Our Approach

By using anatomical, physiological and psychological concepts, we can help you learn how to control your body and change your life. No matter what health level, we are able to help you see significant gains in your life.

Our Story

Fyzical Lakewood Ranch began as an idea by our CEO Sanjeev Joseph BPT MSPT. While working as a physical therapist, he innovated many new techniques to help his patients achieve optimal health. Not satisfied with the current state of healthcare, he decided to start his own practice to help many individuals achieve higher levels of health, while adding like minded therapists to help him bring a new brand of Physical Therapy to his community.

Meet the Team

Our team is a group of like-minded Physical Therapists dedicated to the enhancement of the human experience by teaching techniques to gain control over the human movement apparatus, governed by the musculoskeletal, neuromuscular and myofascial systems.

Sanjeev Joseph

Founder & CEO

Ambition and determination were driving forces early on for Sanjeev. He attended Quinnipiac University in Hamden, Connecticut, graduating with a Master of Science degree in Physical Therapy with a focus on Advanced Orthopedics.

Beginning a career in New York City allowed for a wealth of experience to become an utmost proficient clinician. A desire to accomplish bigger career goals prompted a move to Florida and the decision to start his own practice and Sanjeev has had great success.

With a passion and drive, Sanjeev is interested in discovering new and unprecedented ways to deliver the highest-quality skilled therapy to the public. He is constantly looking for ideas to enhance levels of practice and care in the industry and has plans to expand to serve people outside of his community and profession. There is a continued motivation
to be a pioneer in the field coupled with a passion for bringing the patient the ultimate level of skill in therapy.

At this center a proactive modern approach to your health and wellness is taken, setting the standard for physical therapy care and improvement of health, wellness, and human longevity. Sanjeev is succeeding in his pursuits, adding to yet another reason his FYZICAL practice is on its way to the next level. Technically-advanced equipment, individualized treatment plans, and intuitive care are just a
few of the many attributes the patient can see, experience and feel at this location.
