PT Solutions Asheville: More Than Just Physical Therapy

PT Solutions is proud to serve the Asheville area as one of the city’s leading physical therapy providers. Our physical therapists provide advanced clinical treatment using the latest evidence-based research to help our patients remain in motion throughout all phases of injury and recovery. While PT Solutions currently serves the state of North Carolina with six locations in the greater Asheville area, we have worked diligently over the past several years to expand as a nationwide provider with more than 90 locations across nine different states.

PT Solutions is proud to partner with Park Ridge Health, one of the leading healthcare providers in Western North Carolina. In addition, PT Solutions is the largest provider of physical therapy services in both Henderson and Buncombe counties.  We partner with local sports teams and focus on athlete safety and injury prevention, sponsor races, and provide our services beyond the walls of our clinics. We work with every type of patient from the dedicated CrossFit athlete to the avid running community. Our patients don’t have to be athletes; we treat weekend warriors and the general Asheville community with the same level of dedication and care.

Physical Therapy Extends Beyond Athletics

When people hear the words “physical therapy,” many times their minds turn to sports and fitness professionals. While this is true, physical therapy also touches the lives of young children who aren’t yet ready to take the field. With the help of our Asheville clinics, children and young adults with cognitive impairments are able to work with experienced pediatric therapists in a multitude of ways. Our clinics also serve as a next step clinic after infants leave NICU. We offer physical therapy, occupational therapy, and speech language services, making PT Solutions the leading physical therapy provider in the state with a multi-disciplinary approach to pediatric therapy.

Continuing education is crucial to the physical therapy industry. Our clinical experts remain up-to-date on the latest physical therapy research and sports medicine. We empower them to become leading voices within the physical therapy community. In doing so, many of our clinical experts have written articles and studies on the proper treatment for injuries sustained during sports training and performance such as low back pain, tennis elbow, and spinal stenosis.

One example of PT Solutions’ commitment to education is the development of the PT Solutions’ Concussion Centers. We have opened Concussion Centers across the country with dedicated dark rooms for patient comfort during treatment. We also partner with the Concussion Legacy Foundation, a national leader in the study, treatment, and prevention of the effects of brain trauma in athletes. In addition to treating concussions, PT Solutions Asheville also has therapists that specialize in the treatment of Parkinson’s disease and a variety of other orthopaedic and neurological conditions. We also have clinicians dedicated to the specific needs of women and their physical wellness.

The Residency Program At PT Solutions

North Carolina residents pursuing a career in physical therapy have a unique opportunity with PT Solutions. The distance model Orthopaedic Residency Program offered by PT Solutions allows for aspiring physical therapists to immerse themselves into the field with the state’s leading physical therapy practice. This program is credentialed by the American Board of Physical Therapy Residency and Fellowship Education and is one of only four credentialed Orthopaedic Residency Programs in the state of North Carolina.

The program includes an integrated approach to physical therapy firmly rooted in research and practice with didactic lectures, clinical mentorships and clinical research models. Through this program, our goal is to produce therapists prepared to take the Board of Physical Therapy Specialties test to become orthopaedic clinical specialists. Along with this goal, we want our therapists to become a part of the Asheville community, assisting in both injury prevention and treatment throughout the greater Asheville area.

Our Residency Program faculty consists of clinical experts in the orthopaedic physical therapy field who possess superior technical skills in the areas of evaluation, manual treatment, advanced therapeutic exercise, and training methods. Our faculty includes therapists who have developed and managed private practices, hospitals, professional sports medicine programs, as well as running, cycling and triathlon assessments and training programs. The PT Solutions Residency program instructors include Board Certified Specialists, Residency and Fellowship graduates, business owners, and orthopaedic surgeons who enhance the overall impact on life-long learning and skill development.
