JIMMY PICARD, DPT
Hi, I’m Jimmy Picard.
I’m a physical therapist and performance coach in Salt Lake City, Utah. I specialize in working with runners and mountain athletes.
In 2008, I completed my undergraduate education at The College of William and Mary. I earned a bachelor of science in kinesiology and a minor in mathematics. While at William and Mary, I had a successful career competing in men’s cross country and track.
Sadly, during my senior year I lost my younger brother, Kyle, to suicide. To say the least, it was a difficult time. As a way to raise awareness for teen suicide prevention and to grieve my loss, I cycled across the country. In 45 days I cycled from the Atlantic to the Pacific ocean. Alone with my thoughts, my bike and memories of Kyle.
After graduating, I continued to pursue my passion for running. I remained competitive and set new PRs in distances ranging from the 5k to marathon. A severe calf strain turned me onto cycling and I quickly found success in the sport. I rose up the ranks to Category 2 in less than 2 seasons.
It was during this time that I decided to pursue a career in physical therapy. I received a Doctorate of Physical Therapy from Virginia Commonwealth University in 2014. Since graduating I have focused on treating and coaching endurance athletes.
I am a husband, father, and competitive runner.
Does Redefine PT take my insurance?
No insurance needed. No referral needed.
Redefine Physical Therapy is an out-of-network provider. Being out-of-network allows us to deliver the best possible care. It puts you in the driver’s seat, NOT the insurance company.
You can easily determine your out-of-network physical therapy benefits by calling the number on the back of your insurance card. Oftentimes, your insurance company will reimburse you for some if not all of your PT services especially if you have a PPO plan.
As a “fee for service” model, payment is made at the time of service and there are no hidden costs. As a medical expense, you can use your HSA or FSA account to pay for physical therapy services. We accept payment through cash, credit card, and HSA/FSA card.
The state of Utah allows you to see a physical therapist without a referral from your doctor. Physical therapists are musculoskeletal specialists. We are trained to diagnose and can identify conditions that are not appropriate for physical therapy. We will assess for any red flags and refer them out when necessary.
