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.
