Athens Physical Therapy Clinic

Our primary goal at Athens Physical Therapy is to accurately diagnose 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 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 developed as the Physicians Neck and Back Clinic, we have a unique treatment perspective with exercise equipment that provides 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 specialize in spine care and treatment, our clinicians have years of experience in the treatment of orthopedic conditions involving upper and lower extremity diagnosis as well.

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

Will therapy make me hurt worse?

Apprehension is the greatest limiter of physical performance.' If you have been in pain for a long time, it is natural to be very concerned if your pain increases upon starting an exercise program. Activating muscles that haven't been used in a while will cause your body to protest a bit (especially in the first few weeks). Keep in mind that our techniques of therapy are carefully designed to avoid putting discs and joints at risk. Our goal is to strengthen and reprogram muscle and nerve function to "unload" vulnerable spinal structures. Also, rest assured that it is our duty to listen to you and analyze your pain patterns to assure that nothing of alarm is happening as you progress through therapy.  (Read More)
