Peak Performance

Peak Performance Sports and Physical Therapy was founded by David and Teri Pearce in 2001. Both Dave and Teri are natives of Southern California but were attracted to eastern North Carolina by its exceptional medical facilities, small-town ease, and friendly people.

Dedicated to providing the highest quality physical therapy and customer service in eastern North Carolina, they based their operation in New Bern. With the growing demand for physical therapy by both active duty and veterans around Camp Lejeune, the Jacksonville clinic opened in 2005, with an additional clinic in South Jacksonville offering therapy beginning in the fall of 2011. The Havelock clinic was opened in 2006 to meet the demands from the growth at Cherry Point Marine Corp Air Station, as well as the
expanding Havelock population. Peak Performance expanded to Greenville in 2007, and, most recently in 2013, opened its sixth clinic in Swansboro, NC. This network of clinics offers patients a choice and convenience for physical therapy in eastern North Carolina.

As a physical therapist/owner, Dave’s hands-on approach to patient care and results-based therapy drives Peak Performance and its staff to encourage patients to enjoy being an active participant in their rehabilitation process.

Our professional staff is highly experienced in the field of Sports and Physical Therapy and includes Masters of Physical Therapy, Doctors of Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapists, Certified Hand Specialists, Women’s Health Specialists, and Certified Athletic Trainers.

Therapists are certified by the American Board of Physical Therapy Specialties in seven areas of physical therapy; Orthopedics, Sports, Geriatrics, Pediatrics, Cardiopulmonary, Neurology, and Clinical Electrophysiology.

Our friendly administration support personnel have extensive medical office experience and are dedicated in helping patients with all aspects of insurance, scheduling appointments, coordinating referrals and authorizations, and answering questions. The staff is focused on making the patient experience pleasant, easy and efficient. Our in-house billing staff is available to quickly and efficiently manage all billing issues, including filing and coordinating our patients’ insurance.

All of the clinics are state-of-the art, custom-built facilities. They are bright and cheerful with the latest pro equipment. Patients are constantly monitored to ensure safety, proper use of equipment, and correct performance of exercises.

Understanding that recovering from an injury, or experiencing a loss of movement can be challenging, we believe that the support and camaraderie amongst our staff and patients, combined with expert clinical knowledge and skills, make the healing process enjoyable, as well as highly effective.
