OrthoSouth® offers physical and occupational therapy at the following locations:

Our Therapy Services

Many of our physical therapists are high level athletes themselves, specially trained to help patients safely return to their peak performance following an injury and/or surgery. Through a progressive rehab program focused on restoration of strength and flexibility, we help injured athletes return to recreational or high-level sports as quickly and safely as possible.

Our occupational therapists, specially trained in hand and upper extremity rehab, are experts at restoring function after injury or surgery. Each location with hand therapy available offers the expert services of Certified Hand Therapists, each of whom have completed over 4000 hours of hand and upper extremity therapy and completed the comprehensive test for advanced clinical skills and theory.

Hand therapy is available at the Bartlett, Briarcrest, Germantown, and Primacy clinic locations. 

Hand Center at Briarcrest

Our Briarcrest Hand Center takes a collaborative center-based approach to hand treatment and rehabilitation. Therapists and surgeons work closely together as partners on hand and wrist cases within a dedicated area of the clinic. 

Located at our Briarcrest PT clinic, the pool helps patients strengthen joints and improve flexibility in a buoyant setting. This comfortable environment allows decreased stress on joints for post-surgical patients and those with arthritic conditions. Our certified aquatic therapists have extensive experience taking care of patients with a multitude of diagnoses and goals.

OrthoSouth physical therapists use a variety of therapeutic approaches in the treatment of back and neck pain. Several of our physical therapists are certified in The McKenzie Method, which is an evaluation, classification, and treatment protocol for back pain that may decrease pain quickly, restore function and independence, and minimize the number of visits to the clinic or therapist. For complex cases, therapists are able to utilize an advanced hands-on technique to decrease pain and restore function.

Located at our Poplar clinic, OrthoSouth’s occupational rehab facility offers individualized return to work programs for injured workers. Through our work conditioning programs and functional capacity evaluations, we offer a comprehensive approach to restoring function to those who have been injured at work. Our consistent communication with patients, physicians, case managers, and employers allows us to reach patient outcomes that are truly team-oriented and have injured workers back at full strength safely and quickly.

Isokinetic dynamometry is a mode of strength training on specialized equipment. It allows for both exercise and testing of strength and range of motion for the upper and lower extremities. It is also a component of the return to sport testing protocol used to assess the progress on athletes after injuries and surgery. Our Humac-Norm machine is the same type that is used in the NFL Combine testing.

This service is available at the Briarcrest and Poplar locations. 

Slow Motion Video Analysis records your current running technique which allows our physical therapists with expertise in proper running biomechanics to analyze your technique and develop a specific program to improve your gait, stride, foot strike, arm swing, and posture to maximize your performance and minimize your injury risk.

This service is available at the Briarcrest location.

Our Alter G Antigravity Treadmill allows athletes and patients the ability to run without the full impact of their body weight. This technology, developed by NASA, creates an antigravity environment that lets athletes and patients run at only 20% or more of their body weight and help optimize their running or walking performance.

This service is available at our Briarcrest location. 

Dry needling is a treatment that involves the use of a small needle to inactivate trigger points located in the various muscles of the body. Trigger points are often described as a micro-spasm located in the muscle that is not responding to normal stretching. The purpose of dry needling is to restore muscle function by improving flexibility and reducing pain. This is achieved by breaking up the micro-spasm in the trigger point manually with the needle without the use of medication. This treatment method is often used to treat sports injuries, pain after being involved in a motor vehicle accident, chronic neck and back pain, Achilles tendinitis, and even rotator cuff strains.
