Theryon
The Future of Physical Therapy

     A tectonic shift is happening in the minds of the American consumer, and that shift is regarding their health. At Start It Up, we think this shift started forming amidst the chaos of the debate surrounding socialized healthcare. Somewhere, in the middle of the grandstanding and partisan shouting matches that permeated

the airwaves, a better understanding of health was beginning to

emerge. When we looked at the numbers, we realized that

if we invest in preventative care, we’ll save money on

healthcare overall.

 

A simple concept, but something that, at the time, stood in contrast to the “Take a pill and fix it” western mentality of American healthcare, a mentality which perhaps is most evident in the opioid epidemic that’s currently shaking the nation to its core.

 

     That’s why we’re so excited by Theryon, a new platform that provides on-demand physical therapy to New Yorkers.

     A means of addressing both the modern hectic lifestyle and the the essential need for preventative care, Theryon bridges the crucial gap that comes between understanding what your body needs and addressing it. Almost every adult can benefit from some form of physical therapy. We have pain from our desk jobs, accidents, and aging bodies—but far too often we don’t do anything about this pain until permanent damage has already set in, and far too often this is because we simply can’t find the time.

 

     With 23 years of physical therapy experience, Theryon’s founders were uniquely poised to leverage their understanding of both patient and physical therapist needs to develop a platform that addresses this pain. Their solution was two-fold, create a seamless app and attract the best talent.

     Their application, synonymously named Theryon, allows users to identify their pain and select a time for their one-on-one appointment. Theryon then identifies a specialist uniquely qualified to treat the pain the user is feeling, and requests the appointment.

 

     Theryon’s approach to talent, which they recently discussed at a Startup 2020 event with Forbes magazine, relies on paying physical therapists extremely well and providing them a flexible work environment. Since Theryon is able to charge a premium per appointment, a perk of offering at-home visits, it can pay physical therapists at rates much higher than their typical per-diem. Pair that with completely flexible hours and you have a company that can now have the best therapists in the city as its talent pool.

     It will be fascinating to see how Theryon grows in a society that truly only has a fledgling understanding of how pain affects the body, but one thing is certain—those who do use this resource for preventative care will live a healthier life for it. 

 

      Theryon currently has a team of five administrative employees, and has 30-40 therapists operating in New York City. It is seeking $300K of investment.
