A physical therapist assistant licensed at the College of Central Florida has opened her own therapy and rehabilitation space in east Ocala to help locals suffering from pain, dizziness, and vestibular afflictions.
Florida Therapy & Vestibular Rehab is the newest business to join Chelsea Square, opening at 3237 E Silver Springs Boulevard at the end of October.
Owned and operated by Noelle Souders, the business offers a comprehensive range of physical therapy services. That includes vestibular rehabilitation, which is a form of therapy that addresses vertigo, dizziness, gaze instability, and balance.
Souders says she began her interest in the field after suffering from orthopedic injuries in 2008 while training as a pre-professional ballet dancer.
Souders began working as a physical therapy technician in 2014. Four years later, she earned a degree in physical therapy and a Physical Therapist Assistant License from the College of Central Florida.
Through her years of seeing patients, Souders says she developed an interest in helping those suffering from vestibular and neurological disorders. She decided to open her own business to provide a place where she could help individuals on their journey to recovery.
In addition to physical therapy, vertigo, and pain treatments, Souders’ business also offers therapeutic ultrasounds, kinesiology taping, cupping, and a variety of other services.
Chelsea Square has seen the additions of multiple tenants this year.
That includes Rackexperts, which opened on October 2, and Chelsea Arts Center. In February, Little Bickle began serving authentic Jamaican cuisine from the plaza.
