Fee Schedule

Optimal Movement is a private pay practice. This means we accept payment from you at the time of your visit. We chose this model intentionally. Due to the excessive burden of billing insurance, many in-network clinics not only see patients at a high frequency (3x/week) but they also have to delegate skilled intervention to assistants, leading to minimal time with the physical therapist and in our opinion, decreased quality care. Although this type of high volume care can work for straight forward injuries, it can inhibit optimal and lasting improvement for more challenging and advanced injuries.

It is well-established that private pay physical therapy results in fewer visits than in-network services, at lower total costs to the consumer. This is primarily because you spend 100% of your time with a licensed Doctor of Physical Therapy. Optimal Movement can charge less because the simplified cash-based fee structure streamlines billing and does not require hiring billing personnel or paying fees to a third party billing service. Essentially, there is no middleman, no hoops to jump through, no red-tape, denials, or pre-authorization. Just exceptional quality care leading to optimal movement and enhanced quality of life

Doctor of Physical Therapy

Taylor Summers is the owner and founder of Optimal Movement Rehabilitation and Performance. Taylor is a St. Louis native who specializes in ACL rehab and has a passion for the weightlifting/crossfit community as well as bridging the gap between rehab and performance for high school and college athletes.

She tore her ACL her junior year of high school, initially sparking the interest in becoming a physical therapist after a long and gruesome rehab process that allowed her to continue to play college soccer at Quincy University.

After playing 4 years of college soccer, Taylor went on to Washington University in St. Louis to earn her Doctorate in Physical Therapy. Taylor has extensive training in ACL return to play, video jumping and running analysis, dry needling, and ASTYM (soft tissue mobilization).

Her goal is and has always been to provide exceptional care to clients and patients while helping them achieve all of their goals. She believes in a true holistic rehab process and is passionate about providing clients with all of the education and tools necessary to move smarter, perform better, and live optimally.
