What to expect with each appointment:
Masks are required throughout our facility for the safety of our staff and other patients. Please wear a mask or one will be provided for you.

We will ask you to wash your hands with soap and water before treatment begins.

Athens Physical Therapy Clinic

Welcome to Athens Physical Therapy. Our singular goal at Athens Physical Therapy is help you get better. Whether you have back or neck pain, are recovering from spine surgery or a joint replacement, are a weekend warrior with a nagging injury, or are deconditioned after an illness, we are here to help you return to your regular activities and “Enjoy Life More”. It is our job to accurately recognize your condition, educate you about the diagnosis, effectively treat your condition, and equip you to manage your condition after discharge. We also offer a wellness program to help you maintain and grow your results. Our agenda is to get you back to your normal way of life and offer the opportunity to even enhance it.

Over the years, Athens Physical Therapy has established a reputation of clinical excellence for the treatment of back and neck pain in the region of Athens and Lavonia, Georgia. Originally begun as Physicians Neck and Back Clinic, we have a unique treatment perspective that results in a distinctive therapy experience. With your previous medical history and films in mind, we develop a strategic plan of care to get you back to the activities of daily living and recreation that you enjoy.

While we began as specialists in spine care and treatment, our therapists have years of experience in the treating the breadth of orthopedic conditions to include pre and post-op joint surgeries (for example: shoulders, hip and knees) as well as helping to sort out which structure is involved (examples: shoulder vs. neck or thoracic outlet; low back vs hip, piriformis or SI joints).

Our large therapy and stepdown gyms, private evaluation rooms, and increased interaction time with our therapy staff sets us apart from other clinics in the region. We look forward to working with and helping you get more out of life.

How long will physical therapy take? 

At your first physical therapy visit (initial evaluation), we will work with you in establishing treatment goals that are measureable within certain time frames. The initial evaluation usually lasts about 60 minutes. The frequency of therapy will be discussed and decided between patient and therapist. The typical treatment frequency is twice a week until your goals are met. Before discharge, we will equip you with strategies and exercises that will help you self-manage your symptoms. Each treatment session is typically 45-60 minutes in duration.   (Read More)
