Physical Therapy for Athletes and Active Adults

Our Process

In less than 2 minutes

Injuries strip you of your identity.

When you get injured you’re not only in pain, but you can’t do the things that you love. This weekend’s competition is a bust, going to the gym will be a waste, and your daily walk with the dog is now the last thing you want to do. You lose your identity when you get hurt. The worst part? You know the doctor is going to suggest “easing off” or “cutting back” or “retiring” altogether — we know that’s just not an option. That’s where Performance Physical Therapy at The Charlotte Athlete can help.


We care about your injuries as much as you do.
