Thrive was founded in 2005 by Clarke Tanner and Tara Cattaneo out of enthusiasm for the Physical Therapy profession and a desire to make a positive difference in people’s lives.
Clarke started his career as a clinic director at one of the largest outpatient Physical Therapy companies in the nation. He learned from that experience and wanted to be able to provide an effective alternative to what is commonly practiced. The goal was to create a company that did things differently by providing holistic individualized care tailored to the individual’s unique needs, to strive for excellence, and to achieve a complete multidisciplinary approach to health and wellness.
As we have learned more, developed, and grown over the years we have continued to try to improve our program, create exceptional results for our clients, promote health/wellness, and to build a talented group of individuals to help us in our mission of helping people to thrive.
We have been blessed to have had the privilege to work with, help, and learn from our patients/clients who we have learned as much from them as they have from us.

Finding Thrive truly was an answered prayer from God for me! I am doing wonderful now with my back and my knees are getting there too. I can’t thank you enough. I have only worked with Clarke during therapy at Thrive, but I really welcome and enjoy how he takes the time to really listen to your issues, concerns and questions and then he thoroughly addresses those needs. He does an excellent job of explaining the root cause of your issues to you. Not stuffy or uncomfortable at all. He goes out of his way to make you feel welcome and at ease. Very welcoming!
I just wanted to say that I cannot thank you all enough for how much you have helped me. I experience my acute pain MUCH less often and when I do it is much less terrifying as I can easily breath through it. You folks completely changed my life from day one. When I started coming I had little hope because PT has offered me NO improvement with my back issues in the past but I now have renewed faith in what PT can do. I feel like you have given me something none of the many, many doctors I have seen have come close to…results. My problems are still there in some respects and some will never change (like my lung damage due to my sarcoidosis) but I never could have dreamt of results that changed my life so positively so quickly. I now feel like I can get on with living my life and most importantly I NO LONGER FEAR BEING LEFT ALONE WITH MY 21 MONTH OLD DAUGHTER and that is the best thing that ever could have happened.
I know all too well, that in today’s medical climate, I have to be my own captain, taking full
responsibility for my own health. I will call the practitioners at Thrive top-notch navigators;
professionals who listen deeply, draw upon their expertise, and design a plan of action,
specific to my needs, for us all to work on together.
And all the while, an atmosphere of care and respect fills the entire office. This has been my consistent experience with this practice for the last four years. It is my privilege to recommend them, one and all.
