Business Spotlight: Pinnacle Physical Therapy
Don’t let a sports injury or musculoskeletal pain sideline you from enjoying your life. At Pinnacle Physical Therapy, you’ll receive treatment directly from the owners of the practice. Brian Woodruff and David Brown treat each patient like a member of the family.
“We’ve worked hard to create a unique environment,” Woodruff says. “Being privately owned has given us the opportunity to provide therapy the way we want to provide it. We’ve chosen a staff specifically to mirror our level of compassion and care.”
To ensure clients receive the best quality care, each patient is treated directly by a licensed physical therapist.
“We’ve created a schedule that allows us to have constant access to our patients to give them the best therapy possible,” Woodruff says. “Our goal is for you to not only improve quickly but to be extremely satisfied with your experience along the way.”
Founded in 2004, Pinnacle Physical Therapy specializes in superior quality, personalized and compassionate care of all orthopedic, sports and musculoskeletal injuries. They treat patients of all ages with conditions involving the neck, mid and low back, shoulder, elbow, wrist/hand, hip/pelvis, knee, ankle and foot.
Brian Woodruff received his Bachelors degree of Health Science in Physical Therapy in 1989 from the University of Louisville and has devoted the majority of his career to outpatient orthopedic and sports medicine therapy. He has extensive clinical and management experience and has specialized training and interest in shoulder and knee disorders, sports injuries, total joint replacements, cervical injuries and outpatient geriatrics.
Brian works to provide effective treatment through the consideration of all factors influencing the injury and works to create an individualized treatment plan to obtain maximum results.
David Brown received his Masters in Physical Therapy from the University of Kentucky in 1999. His career has been exclusively in outpatient orthopedic rehabilitation. He is driven to seek out the true origin of a patient’s symptoms and then promote restoration of the body’s optimal mechanics and function. He has significant experience focusing on disorders involving the shoulder, scapula, upper spine complex as well as pre and post surgical rehabilitation of lumbar, hip, knee and ankle disorders. His extensive post-graduate training and experience allows him to establish an evidenced-based treatment program that is carefully and creatively designed for each individual patient.
David also utilizes a very specialized manual technique called “trigger point dry needling. This is a highly-effective treatment that involves gently inserting a very thin, solid needle (no medication or injection) directly in the muscle to release trigger points to improve and normalize the function of the muscle and surrounding joints. A trigger point is a dense band or “knot” in a muscle. They can be tender to the touch and may cause pain and dysfunction to other parts of the body. Some confuse this technique with acupuncture, an Eastern World medicine utilizing needles and body energies to improve body functions. Combining “trigger point dry needling” with traditional treatments many times leads to a more rapid recovery.
It’s important that you know it is always your choice where you receive therapy. In Kentucky, the direct access law allows you to see a physical therapist without a physician’s referral. Brian and Dave will consult with your physician as needed. When you choose Pinnacle, you are choosing a Christian-based, locally-owned business that delivers superior care and proven results. Pinnacle offers extended hours for your convenience and accepts most insurances.
Pinnacle Physical Therapy also offers “free screens” where a licensed therapist will perform a free brief evaluation of your injury and advise you on a proper treatment path.
