Limitless Therapy Services is a proud supporters of Move Together, a U.S. based organization dedicated to improving communities locally, nationally and internationally. Move Together's mission is to increase access to quality rehabilitation medicine around the corner and around the world. Limitless Therapy Services recently made a donation to Move Together in support of their efforts at establishing sustainable rehabilitation clinics in towns across the globe. This years efforts were successful in restoring a building and adjacent grounds into a rehabilitation facility in a community in Guatemala that has had no access to rehabilitation services in the past.
In addition, for the last two years, co-founder Beren M. Shah, PT, DPT has been the Nevada ambassador for Move Together's PT Day of Service centered around a global day of service. As the Nevada ambassador, Beren has planned, promoted and lead other volunteers during a day of service in southern Nevada. In 2016 Beren lead a group of PT's, PTA's, student PT's, student PTA's and other community members in a clean up at the Old Las Vegas Mormon Fort State Historic Park where volunteers picked up trash, cleared weeds and assisted the park ranger in other tasks to assist in grounds maintenance. In 2017 Beren organized a blood drive with the American Red Cross in coordination with Carrington College's PTA program in October, and due to the tragic events of October 1, 2017, the event also played host to several mental health professionals and spiritual counselors for those affected to have an opportunity to seek help.
This year Beren was once again an ambassador for the PT Day of Service and Limitless Therapy Services has partnered with Carrington College's PTA program and the American Red Cross and organized a blood drive on October 13, 2018. The blood drive was a huge success with the additional support of the Nevada Chapter of the APTA with 29 donations resulting in enough blood products to potentially impact 87 lives! Keep an eye on this page for updates as we plan next year's event.

Merging Vets & Players
Limitless Therapy Services is proud to announce our partnership with Xtreme Couture MMA to provide pro-bono services to the members of the Merging Vets & Players organization. MVP's mission is to match up combat veterans and former professional athletes together -- after the uniform comes off -- to give them a new team to tackle the transition together. MVP shows them they are NOT alone.
Our co-founder, Robert R. Robb, PT, DPT, is responsible for bringing this partnership to fruition. He is passionate about giving back to the community especially to our veterans who often struggle to get the medical attention they need. Rob wanted to create and develop this partnership in order to show our veteran community that we care about what happens to them after the uniform comes off. We hope to inspire others to join our cause and provide increased access to high level care to our veterans.

Co-founder Beren M. Shah, PT, DPT is active in the community advocating for patient access to quality healthcare services, especially with respect to rehabilitation. Beren spent the better part of a year as a member of a group of therapy professionals writing a bill that was proposed in the 2017 legislative session to modernize the Physical Therapy practice act [the set of laws that govern what Physical Therapist’s (PTs) and Physical Therapy Assistants (PTAs) can and cannot do in Nevada] and protect patient access to quality rehabilitation services. Beren also volunteered to join members of the Nevada Physical Therapy Association (NVPTA) and the Nevada Physical Therapy Board to travel to Carson City to speak to members of the 79th Nevada State Legislature to relay the importance of rehabilitation and patient access to quality healthcare. Beren has recently volunteered to be a part of a new grassroots effort by the NVPTA to educate legislative members about rehabilitation and patient access on an on-going basis.
In addition to his work with the legislative process, Beren is involved in advocating for evidence based practice and public safety. Beren is an active member of the Advisory Committee on Continuing Competence (ACCC) of the Nevada Physical Therapy Board. The role of the ACCC is to review all continuing competency classes submitted to the board and assure they meet a minimum criteria to ensure PT’s and PTA’s are practicing with relevant and evidence based techniques that are safe for the public.
Limitless Therapy Services will continue to take an active roll in the community locally, and at the state level, to promote quality care and improved patient access for all Nevadans.
Co-founder Beren M. Shah, PT, DPT is active with advocating for rehabilitation and patient rights at the federal level since 2013, starting his journey into advocacy as a student at UNLV. Beren has attended APTA's annual Federal Advocacy Forum (FAF) where PTs and PTAs from around the nation converge on Captiol Hill in Washington, D.C. to speak to members of the House of Representatives and the Senate about important topics within the realms of rehabilitation, healthcare and patient access. The FAF serves as a way to educate lawmakers on the issues healthcare professionals and patients alike are facing in an ever changing healthcare field. Limitless Therapy Services is proud to advocate for Nevadans and will continue to fight for increased patient access to improved evidence based healthcare.
Limitless Therapy Services is also a proud supporter of the #ChoosePT campaign to bring increased awareness to the opioid epidemic and promote the CDC's recommendation of physical therapy as a safe alternative to opiates for pain management and relief.
