Our Story: Elevating Every Age
In the heart of every individual is a timeless spirit, one that desires to live fully, vibrantly, and independently, regardless of age. At Next Level Aging and Wellness, we embarked on our journey with a vision: to change the narrative around aging and redefine what the golden years can truly mean.

Where Passion Meets Purpose

Our founder witnessed firsthand how traditional physical therapy limited many active adults. They were being prepared to “cope” rather than “thrive.” This sparked a vision: a place that went beyond rehabilitation, focusing on proactive wellness, vibrancy, and embracing life’s golden opportunities.

The Next Level Difference

In-depth Understanding

We aren’t just experts in aging; we’re enthusiasts of its potential. We’ve delved deep into the science and spirit of aging to develop approaches that genuinely resonate.

Holistic Wellness Approach

Beyond physical vitality, we look at emotional, mental, and social well-being, ensuring a 360-degree elevation of your life.

Tailored to You

Each person's journey with age is unique. Our plans, therapies, and recommendations are as individual as you are.

Our Promise to You

In every interaction, every therapy session, every shared laugh or moment of encouragement, our commitment remains unshaken. We promise to walk with you, championing your aspirations, celebrating your milestones, and paving the way for a life where age isn’t a limitation but an invitation.

Ryan Pond, Operations Manager

Born and raised in Texas, Ryan moved to Houston in July 2009 from the small (at the time) town of Brenham. He is a storyteller through and through, and when he isn’t telling the story of Next Level Physical Therapy he is probably listening to a podcast or buried in a book somewhere. Growing up he was an avid reader, technology enthusiast, writer, gamer, musician, camera man, adventurer, and bard. Nowadays he lives on the Northside of Houston with his family; his wife, Ana, and their five children. When you stop in the clinic, don’t forget to ask him about coffee or comics if you have a few hours to waste. Or give him a snack and he will probably go away (disclaimer: We don’t encourage feeding the staff).
