If you happened to walk by Neurosport the other evening, you may have been surprised to see their large, airy space filled to capacity with well wishers as they threw a big, holiday party to celebrate their official ribbon cutting of their new business. South Pasadenans, clients, family and friends came out to congratulate the couple along with City officials and chamber members.

Neurosport is a physical therapy center specializing in orthopedic, sports and neurological physical therapies. Jason explains, “we are small and family owned; I deal with more orthopedic issues and Nicole specialized in neurologic issues such as brain injuries and Parkinsons disease.” He goes on to say “we have complimentary skill sets which is really nice.”

The couple has been overwhelmed by how much the South Pasadena community has embraced them and they are over the moon with their decision to move their business here in June. Nicole tells us, “we looked for a space for over six months and when we saw this space we knew this was it.” Jason jumps in to say, “before we came here we didn’t realize how tight-knit and supportive this community is and it has just been amazing. Everyone is so nice, friendly and helpful; so many people have helped us out and it’s a lot of what has made us successful thus far.” They say they have found that their clients from the Pasadena and surrounding areas enjoy coming to South Pasadena because of it’s vibe and walkability.

They have a large, 2200 square foot space with a wide open floorplan with lots of space for equipment and room to work out along with a private treatment room. Nicole says they have really tried to structure their approach in a way that allows them to give attention to each individual saying, “it’s just one on one; there are no aides. You deal directly with either myself or Jason and it’s very personal.”
