Our Story

Vantage Clinical Solutions (our parent brand) started with a pen, a pad of paper, and two physical therapists chatting over lunch back in 2005. Disenchanted with their own workload, priorities, and lack of freedom to create and serve, they created Vantage as the answer to their own frustrations with physical therapy. Over the past 10 years, Vantage has created a family of brands, like BuildPT dedicated to preserving, growing, and strengthening what we consider to be the best profession on earth.

The BuildPT Mission

BuildPT was created to provide marketing services specifically designed to meet the needs of the private practice physical therapist. From website development and hosting to providing content marketing solutions for physical therapy clinics across the country, our goal is to help PTs better market themselves as well as their profession, mindful that an educated and empowered consumer is more likely to make physical therapy a part of his or her healthcare regimen.
