The origin story
When Dr. Plowman was serving in the Navy as the sole Physical Therapist on board an aircraft carrier, she earned the call sign (nickname) of "Pain Boss." In honor of this recognition and because of her professional passion of helping patients be the "boss" of their pain, she named her practice Pain Boss Physical Therapy.
