Opened in 2016, Made 2 Move Physical Therapy of Daniel Island is making its own move into 1,700 square feet of space at 885 Island Park Drive, Suite C.
Founder Yves Gege launched Made 2 Move as an independent physical therapy practice in a 150-square-foot space inside Crossfit Discovery. Since opening, Made 2 Move has seen a nearly 400 percent increase in revenue, while adding six practitioners.
“Our goal is to quickly identify and eliminate your pain, return you to the activities that you love and increase your long term performance,” says Gege.
A Charleston native, Bishop England alum and Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) graduate, Gege worked for more than 10 years in the insurance-based health care industry before deciding to take back control of his life so that he could spend more time with his family and make a bigger impact on his patients. In order to do this, Gege developed a concierge concept that ignores the traditional insurance-based system, allowing him to spend more time with his patients and give them the attention that they need and deserve.
Made 2 Move Physical Therapy has grown its outreach to include six practitioners that span four locations, including one therapist who travels to treat patients around the Lowcountry.
Serving clients at the Daniel Island office are Dane Gifford, PTA, and Dr. Nate Jones, PT. Both Gifford and Jones are military veterans. Gifford graduated from the College of Charleston with a Bachelors of Science in Exercise Science and graduated from Trident Technical College with an Associates of Science as a Physical Therapist Assistant, while Jones earned his Doctorate of Physical Therapy degree from MUSC.
Also part of the Made 2 Move family are licensees Dr. Meg Henderson, PT, Made 2 Move of Mount Pleasant; Dr. Maysa Hannawi, PT, In The Box Physical Therapy; and Tracey Manasco, PT, Elevated Physical Therapy. Henderson and Manasco specialize in physical therapy associated with women’s health and wellness.
Made 2 Move is the area's first and only physical therapy & sports performance clinic to use Blood Flow Restriction Therapy.
Along with Made 2 Move’s team, Triathlon & Multi-Sport Coach Brad Johnson also will see clients at the Daniel Island office. Additionally, Johnson will be bringing in several nutrition and diet specialists to help his athletes and clients of Made 2 Move.
The new location, directly across the street from Dockery’s and next door to Agaves Cantina opened Feb. 1.

MORE ABOUT YVES GEGE: Yves Gege is a Charleston native living on Daniel Island with his family, wife Amy and children, Liam and Hollyn. A Bishop England alum, he attended the College of Charleston, receiving his physical therapy degree from MUSC in 2006. Yves' passion for physical therapy started at a young age when he saw the amazing impact physical therapy had on his little sister with special needs. Through physical therapy his sister achieved amazing milestones physically and mentally that would not have been possible without that amazing 1-on-1 care. Made 2 Move came about when he was running an insurance based practice and knew he wanted better care for his patients and a better quality of life for his colleagues. Now, within the private pay model, his physical therapists are able to give their patients the time, energy and care they deserve to not only treat the problem but improve their overall quality of life by working on each patient's specific goals and needs.
