Forever Fit Physical Therapy & Wellness was founded in 2010 with the mission to provide a physical therapy experience that exceeded the patient’s expectations at every interaction. The founder, Krista Frederic, MPT, OCS was committed not only to providing treatments that were effective, efficient and supported by evidence and years of experience, but to creating a patient experience that exceeded expectations at every turn. She believes that a relaxed, comfortable patient is more receptive to healing, resulting in better outcomes and long-term health improvements.
Forever Fit successfully opened its 4th location in 2016 to serve the residents of Columbia, Md and its surrounding areas. Forever Fit Columbia not only offers general outpatient orthopedics services but also provides lymphedema and cancer rehabilitation programs under the guidance of one of the leading lymphedema physical therapists in the country, Maureen McBeth MPT, CLT-LANA.
We hope to continue to alleviate pain, improve mobility and most importantly, create lifelong quality of life for our patients. We will provide you with the education to care for this injury and others in the future. We teach you about your body, how pain works, how to prevent future recurrence and what to do if re-injury does occur. You can expect friendly, consistent and reliable service at every visit, with input into your goals and the healing process.
