“I have worked for many years in busy outpatient clinics and I grew tired and frustrated over my inability to give clients the treatment they deserved. My vision is that patients can receive high quality physical therapy services with the patient as the priority, not the insurance company.”

Dr. Brandon Whitworth

Sports Physical Therapist 


I am the founder of Athletic Edge Physical Therapy, an athlete-centered physical therapy and human performance center in Chattanooga, TN. I received my doctoral degree in physical therapy with valedictorian honors in 2011 and then completed an advanced orthopedic residency program through Touro College in Manhattan. I obtained board certification in Orthopedics (OCS) and Sports (SCS), with less than 1% of physical therapists in the United States earning this dual certification. 

I have pursued further specialization in orthopedic and sports care, obtaining certifications in Advanced Orthopedic Physical Therapy (CAOPT), Strength and Conditioning (CSCS), Functional Movement Screen (FMSC) and Mobility/WOD Movement and Mobility Specialization. 

I have been trained in numerous treatment techniques including: Dry Needling, Osteopathic Spinal and Joint Mobilizations, Muscle Energy Techniques, IASTM (Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization), Functional Mobilization, Myofascial Release, Neuromuscular Re-education, Nerve Flossing, Kinesiotaping, Adaptive Yoga, and Pilates Exercise.
