About Us

Since 2008, Lifestyle Physical Therapy has played a dynamic and comprehensive health care role in the greater Charlotte area. The therapists at Lifestyle are committed to improving the quality of life for clients by offering personalized, one-on-one care using state-of-the-art equipment and hands-on techniques. We specialize in neurological recovery, orthopedic rehabilitation, and chronic pain care for all age groups, and communicate regularly with referring physicians.

A therapist-owned and operated facility, Lifestyle Physical Therapy was founded by Karen Shuler PT, DPT with the express emphasis on compassionate, individualized therapeutic care over patient volume. Inspired by patients who were determined to never give up, Karen sought to develop a clinic to allow each individual to reach their highest potential and to “Never Give Up”!

The clinic is conveniently located in the heart of Lake Wylie, SC, just west of Charlotte’s Buster Boyd Bridge.
