About us

We are a medical clinic

Premier Physical Therapy and Sports Medicine opened in October 2001 and has been growing for the past 18 years. There are presently 6 locations with plans to add more in the near future. Owned and operated by a physical therapist, Premier Physical Therapy and Sports Medicine is known as the leader of Rehabilitation on the Treasure Coast. Many healthcare providers attempt to manage a physical therapy practice as an added feature to their specialty or practice, such as Chiropractors or Physicians. Premier only focuses on the expertise that the staff has been credentialed in, Physical Therapy and Sports Medicine.

Physical Therapist and owner, Jeffrey Tucker has spent the last 25 years on the Treasure Coast operating physical therapy clinics in almost all settings. He has managed a local hospital’s rehabilitation center, opened clinics for orthopedic groups, and assisted several local therapists in opening outpatient clinics that are still present today on the Treasure Coast. During this time, he learned that the best results came from caring, calming atmospheres where every detail was dedicated to patient success and positive outcomes. Premier Physical Therapy and Sports Medicine was born in 2001 out of the ambition to create a convenient, patient-focused physical therapy option for Treasure Coast residents.

Our caring staff of industry-trusted physical therapists has more years of combined experience than any other provider of therapy on the Treasure Coast. There is a level of excellence that most companies simply cannot match. Our wide range of services includes sports medicine, musculoskeletal injuries, automobile injuries, spinal pain, orthopedic therapies, osteoarthritis, anodyne therapy, vestibular rehabilitation and more. Even if physical therapy is not right for you, we will be happy to assist you in determining and finding the best care available. In 2015, Premier Physical Therapy and Sports Medicine was recognized as the Top Physical Therapy Practice in St Lucie County by a local survey and posted in Scripps Newspaper.

With six locations on Florida's Treasure Coast, we are proud to offer the most convenient physical therapy services for South Stuart, Palm City, Jensen Beach, Port St. Lucie, St. Lucie West, and Fort Pierce residents. Our extensive local reputation and major insurance contracts make Premier Physical Therapy the number one choice for personalized in-network physical therapy and rehabilitation.

We look forward to helping you achieve a speedy and successful recovery.

  • I brought my 3-year-old son to Premier Physical Therapy after he suffered a broken elbow. He received 5 weeks of therapy under their expert care. I found each and every staff member that I encountered to be extremely competent and professional. They truly went the extra mile to make my son feel at ease while being treated. I never would have guessed that the hard work of physical therapy would actually become a positive experience that my 3-year-old looked forward to! Through Premier's outstanding treatment, my son's elbow is completely rehabilitated with his range of motion back to normal. Premier Physical Therapy, thank you so much for the exceptional care that you provide!

  • I recently completed a program of orthopedic therapy from Premier after a bi-lateral TKR (replacement of both knees) earlier this year. The therapy I received was first class. My therapist was highly trained and a pleasure to work with, and the Premier facilities were much better than others I had considered. Needless to say, the therapy I received was completely successful and both I and my surgeon were very pleased with the result. I highly recommend Premier for anyone considering physical therapy. As a final note, I might add that I�ll be skiing again with my family next week in Colorado!

  • I would like to thank the therapists at Premier Physical Therapy at St. Lucie West for being a vital part of my physical recovery from a stroke that I had in February 2010. Kelly Hadley and Tanesha Upton are outstanding therapists that went above and beyond to make me stronger and more determined to overcome my balance issues. In two months time, they helped me to strengthen my core which gave me more stability and physical stamina that I lacked after the stroke. They have inspired me to make exercise a daily part of my life in order to reach my goal of peak physical fitness and health. Never give up! With many thanks and deep gratitiude,
