Kinetic Sports Rehab blends chiropractic, physical therapy and sports medicine to give its clients “something different” in the pursuit of recovery from injury, relief from pain and improvement in athletic performance. With 35 employees at four locations, Kinetic Sports Rehab creates high-energy workplaces dedicated to good compensation and professional training. Cofounder Michael Bourbonnais, a doctor of chiropractic, says employees are hired for cultural fit and they gain energy from Kinetic’s mission to change patients’ stories. 

“You’ll feel important and valued the moment you walk through the door because to us, you’re a celebrity,” he says. Employees know “they’re part of a bigger picture.” Weekly surveys cultivate their ideas and feedback. Kinetic also channels a portion of its profits to causes like Pencils of Promise, which builds schools in underprivileged regions of the world, as well as local organizations like the Seattle Urban Academy and Upower, which target the education and health of at-risk young people.
