Having a strong desire to help others, I (Jody Musick) entered into the profession of physical therapy to make a difference. While I have found all aspects of physical therapy to be extremely rewarding, being involved in private practice has been the most gratifying.
Before opening my practice, I graduated from Shenandoah University with my Master and later on my Doctorate of Physical Therapy Degree. Following graduation, I went to work in a small practice, Woodstock Rehab and Fitness, as a staff therapist. I decided to move back close to home and went to work for Mountain States Health Alliance. Over 9 years of employment, I worked as a staff therapist, site manager, and a corporate director of rehab services.
I always knew my ultimate goal was to establish my own practice. I opened Achieve Health and Wellness in June 2011 in Gray, TN. My methods proved to be more successful than I could have ever imagined, and that led to opening another clinic in April 2012 in Kingsport, TN.
Achieve Health and Wellness has a unique culture, where the patients and their rehabilitation are our primary concern. Our therapists are highly trained and focus on patient outcomes. Treatment is individualized and there is a distinct difference in the overall delivery of care from start to finish that you will not get in any other physical therapy clinic in the Tri-cities, TN.
Wellness is just as important as the physical therapy we deliver. Promoting and fostering lifelong changes in the patient’s well-being and health is important to the staff. We offer carefully designed wellness programs that can help ensure your continuing ability to do the things you love and help you prevent age-related problems. These days, being active – even competitive – is important at any age. We can tailor your wellness plan to help you keep playing your sport or activity of choice for as long as you want. Often physical therapy patients sign up for our wellness program, but any individual wanting to make changes can sign up.
This has been my dream since I started observing as a student in a small physical therapy department over 20 years ago. I can say…”I’m living the dream.”
