Are non-compete clauses valid?

Question Details: I'm currently a therapist at a private practice that services private pay clients only. I'm contemplating opening my own private practice that will service insured clients only. However, according to my independent contractor contract, I cannot open or join another practice within a 10 mile radius of any of the current practices locations for a period of 2 years. Is this enforceable or would this be considered unreasonable based on the time, geographic restrictions and potential impediments to my finances?
