Pittman Physical Therapy LLC
What got you started in this business?
I initially got started in the Physical Therapy industry after suffering a shoulder injury. I was impressed by the time and compassion that was shown to me and it sparked my career path. This high standard of service is what my staff and I give to our patients with thorough personal care and compassion. We experience great satisfaction in helping injured patients gain back their strength and decrease pain! CLICK to learn more about what motivates me every day.
When did you open the business and how has it evolved or adapted since the business launch?
We initially opened Pittman Physical Therapy in 2007. Over the last 10 years, with education, innovation and forced evolution, we’ve learned to adapt and thrive in an era where insurance has taken so many of my colleagues out of business. We’ve had to become not only better clinicians, but better spokespeople for our profession and marketers for our business.
How is your business unique? What kind of experience can be expected by doing business with you and your team?
I feel we are definitely unique to what we do. I had a conversation with someone just last week about the different results we get with our truly personal, customized service. When you get to my office, you don't feel like a number. You are given time, attention and made to feel like one of the family, not treated like a bar code on a chart. Expect to experience more than healing in our warm, welcoming environment. We deeply believe that your needs come first as our patient.
Why is Collierville a great place for your business?
I grew up in a small town in Mississippi and Collierville now feels like home to me. Collierville is a really large “small town.” For me to own a business here, to work with my peers, friends, and people that I see at the grocery, it makes me feel like I can make a real difference in MY community. It helps me give back to the place I now call home.
What makes our town special to you?
Collierville has everything we need. It’s large enough to shop, dine, and play, but small enough to hear the gossip around town. I feel like I live in Mayberry sometimes! It really reminds me of my home town.
Tell us about your story! Family, interests and hobbies:
I grew up in Itta Bena, MS to a father who works “lights and gas” and a mother who worked three jobs to help send me and my two brothers to school. We lived with my Grandmother for a while and all of these experiences instilled a strong work ethic in me. I went to a Junior college before Mississippi State University, then went on to PT school. I waited tables to pay for it all and truly appreciate the blessings and opportunities in my life. I met my wife at MSU and we got married just after graduation and began our life together in Memphis.
My oldest daughter was born sixteen years ago at Baptist Collierville. This was my first experience with Collierville. It felt so far away from our home even though it was just down 385! We now have four children: Sophie (16), Stone (13), Foster (10) and Brinkley (8). My wife Hope works with me at the office when she isn't busy being a mom. Sophie and Brinkley both dance and Sophie travels all over competing with hopes of becoming a professional dancer. Stone loves lacrosse and Foster loves it all. As for me, I’m a little bit of an Obstacle course junkie. At age 39, I needed to do something to get in shape. I was talked into participating in a Tough Mudder competition. (It’s 13 miles of mud and obstacles!) Since then, I’ve done seven other races and talked my brother into doing them as well! He’s up to five races and our families have done two of them together. My daughter Sophie and I competed in a Mudder competition together and THIS PHOTO is one of my treasured memories. I love to play hard, but most of my time is spent working on and in the business. Most days though, I really need a nap (but I don't get one!)
Are there any non-profit organizations you’re close with?
There are so many fantastic groups and organizations out there, but there are two nonprofits I’d like to highlight. The Page Robbins Adult Day Center is a wonderful place for individuals with Alzheimer’s and they do such incredible work with patients. They also help relieve caregiver isolation and stress. This organization is a treasure within our community.
The Collierville Education Foundation hosts creative fundraising events throughout the year with the sole purpose of giving teachers what they need to go above and beyond. Teachers apply for small grants to purchase items outside of their normal classroom supplies. The CEF also provides additional learning tools and technology needs for classrooms such as Promethian boards and iPad carts. When my youngest graduates, I’ll have had children in Collierville schools for 18 years straight. The teachers we have are truly amazing! These grants give teachers the tools to help our kids achieve greatness.
There’s so much to be proud of in Collierville!
Our town of Collierville has been recognized by Parade Magazine as the best town square in America, one of the top high schools in America, and one of the safest places to live. This isn’t achieved by happenstance. We have a truly great community that recognizes what makes our town special, and treats it as such. As we continue to grow, I pray we hold true to our small town feel with big city attributes.
If you’re feeling aches and pains, recovering from an injury, or just wanting to increase your strength and mobility, let’s set up an appointment. We also offer the highly effective Dry Needling technique. This is used in conjunction with or in place of other physical therapy techniques to obtain better, faster, and longer-lasting outcomes.
We’re here to help you RUN, DANCE, PLAY, LIVE!!
