MotionWorks Physical Therapy Website

We focus on you, your goals, and the particulars of your injury, so we can progress your rehab program at your pace so you can reach your goals faster.

Why Drupal was chosen: 

This was my first website design so I wasn't sure what to use (or really even what a CMS was). After doing a ton a research it looked like Drupal and Wordpress where the top options. Being an electrical engineer and therefore having a technical aptitude and really like the flexibility and power that Drupal provided over the out of the box functionality that Wordpress did.

Describe the project (goals, requirements and outcome): 

Started out as a simple brochure style site for my wife's new physical therapy practice. I decided to use Drupal though because I wanted to learn it and eventually expand to site to add other features such as online scheduling, eCommerce, patient exercise compliance tracking, etc. I found that Drupal does indeed have a steep learning curve, but once you get to know your way around it's very powerful. SEO was key for me and Drupal made on-site SEO really easy. Speed was also important and the Boost module has proven simple to use and yet very effective. I wanted a solution was doable for beginners and yet scaled as I learned more.

Modules/Themes/Distributions
Why these modules/theme/distribution were chosen: 

I'm using a lot of modules. At some point I think I'll need to remove some of them, but for right now just grabbing a module to get an additional piece of functionality has been quick and easy. I'm using more than I listed above, but those are the ones I'd like to highlight. Boost has really helped speed up the site (at least for anonymous users). Meta tags, Scheme.org (along with modules like Redirect, Pathauto, and XML sitemap) have really helped make on-page SEO easy and helped us rise quickly within Google. MailChimp (along with the MailChimp service) makes it easy to manage and build our email list. @font-your-face came in really handy when I wanted to use a non-standard font. Again as a relative beginner I thought adding a non-standard font would prove to be very difficult, but a quick module search turned up @font-your-face and just like that I had thousands of fonts to choose from! Location map has been perfect to easy incorporate Google maps into our site without a lot of features that we didn't need. Webform has made it simple to quickly add landing pages and I'm just now started to learn the power of Views to do basically whatever I want! :)
