About our Clinics:
Local Ownership & Local Commitment
Founded in 2006 by physical therapist Tiffany Prangnell, Imua Physical Therapy started out as South Shore Physical Therapy & Sportsmedicine. Tiffany saw the need in Maui and opened the first clinic in Kihei. But God had bigger plans!
A few years after the first clinic was established, a friend and former co-worker led her to open a satellite clinic in Kahana out of a local gym. In June of 2012, we officially expanded to our own location in Kahana across the street from the gym we had been partnering in, and officially changed our name to Imua Physical Therapy. In the same year we opened a central satellite office in Wailuku. Since then, we have been shifting and expanding to meet the needs or our community and our growing programs! We now have 3 great locations in Central, South, and West Maui with an Upcountry location soon to open.
It is our goal that you experience the very best care and reach all of your personal rehabilitation needs and that together, Imua Physical Therapy strives to be a integrated part of the community in which we live and work.
At Imua Physical Therapy, we like to think that things are a little different. What makes us unique is not obvious at first glance. But while the distinguishing characteristics are not visible to the eye, they are no less real. So what is it that sets Imua Physical Therapy apart? Our Values!
Our mission is to serve God by caring for the health of our Ohana- Our patients, our employees and our community.
We will achieve this by:
• Compassion: Providing a Caring and Safe Environment for our patients to thrive with focused, individualized treatment plans.
• Commitment: Going beyond our patients’ expectations in service and treatment excellence.
• Community: Giving of our time & finances to the non-profits we support to give back to our island home.
We believe it’s important to ho’o malama (to care for) our employees’ physical, emotional and spiritual health- so that we can serve & care for others through the healing art & practice of Physical Therapy.
We exist to support our employees with a commitment to a positive and respectful work environment with a focus on professional growth to develop a compassionate and knowledgeable team that serves our community.
Imua (ee-moo-a) is an ancient Hawaiian word meaning to take on, charge and advance. Another concept is “Moving Forward”. This defines for us what we want to do for our patients, employees and community!
