We are very proud to have professionals who have demonstrated a motivation and ability to distinguish themselves as advanced clinicians in a specialized field of physical therapy.

"In the middle of recovering from rotator cuff surgery, COVID hit...and I continued to receive the exceptional, kind, healing PT virtually that I experienced at the clinic. Sean and his team never missed a step in getting me back to feeling like new. I know how committed Sean was to keeping clients like me from feeling the impact of shelter in place and I will be forever grateful. SPT in South Asheville is in a class of its own!"~ Margaret (Google Review)
