What To Expect

Each visit is with your physical therapist, and every effort is made to offer each patient an individualized plan of care.  Our goal is a functional and effective treatment plan that reduces the pain and helps you return to activity as quickly as possible. 

At the first visit, a patient is evaluated by the physical therapist through a thorough history followed by gentle repeated movements. Hands on manual assessment is also used as appropriate to assess mechanical stress and their effects on the issue.  We utilize sound mechanical principles of diagnosis and treatment with an emphasis on developing an effective patient driven care plan.

Our Approach

Physical Therapy at Knoxville Spine and Sports is not a cookie cutter approach based on a presenting diagnosis.  A patient will be treated as an individual with a personalized plan of care to include the most efficient manual techniques and therapeutic exercises to address pain or mobility issues and improve strength and stabilization. Our approach emphasizes self-care and prevention of recurrences. This allows our patients to be actively involved in their care, expedites recovery time, and develops independence in prevention and self-treatment.  Our specialties include:

  • McKenzie Method of Mechanical Diagnosis and Treatment.
  • Active range of motion
  • Stretching and strengthening exercises 
  • Manual therapy
  • Soft tissue/deep tissue massage
  • Joint mobilization 
  • Postural exercises
  • Kinesio Taping
  • Electrical Stimulation
  • Ultrasound Therapy

Other modalities that may be utilized include various soft tissue and myofascial therapies such as scraping, cupping, Active Isolated Stretching, as well as dry needling and a Class IV laser when appropriate to progress the patient to full recovery of function.
