Why Pure PT and Wellness, LLC?

Pure PT and Wellness, LLC is a concierge physical therapy clinic in Tampa, FL. We specialize in pregnant /4th trimester and postpartum care and also treat all orthopedic conditions including chronic back, neck, shoulder, hip, knee or foot pain.

I am passionate about helping new moms before, during and after birth; improve postpartum healing; bridge the gap between giving birth and return to fitness; and help people get out of pain while regaining their health and happiness. Over the years, I've learned there is no magic pill, one size fits all treatment or specific protocol to healing.  Every case and every patient is different, and these differences call for skilled diagnosis, individualized treatment, and the ability to adapt.

I combine current research, manual therapy (including JFB MFR), therapeutic exercise programs, patient education and self-advocacy to optimize your recovery.  My one-on-one approach to providing adaptable care based on your needs will efficiently get you to your goals.

Meet Dr. Elaine James

I started my health care journey as an athletic trainer after graduating from University of Central Florida in 2002 with Bachelors of Science in Athletic Training.  I spent 2 years as a graduate assistant at Florida Atlantic University working with DI football and baseball players while completing my Masters of Science Degree in Exercise Physiology. After graduating in 2004, I joined the Sports Medicine Staff at Rollins College where I worked with DII athletes in a variety of sports including baseball, basketball, soccer and lacrosse. I transitioned into physical therapy in 2009 and graduated from University of St. Augustine with my Doctorate degree in Physical Therapy with an emphasis on manual therapy.

I have attended seminars all over the country enhancing and perfecting my skills in order to better serve my patients. Topics including pregnancy/postpartum care, kinesiotaping, functional movement screening, Titleist Performance Institute golf screening, Myofascial Release, and completed all seminar requirements to become a certified manual therapist through the University of St. Augustine. 

I look forward to starting a healing journey with you and regain health, fitness and happiness.
