Providing exceptional physical therapy patient care since 1995

Part of the Upstream Rehabilitation family of clinical care, BenchMark Physical Therapy is a leading operator of outpatient physical therapy clinics in the United States. Founded in 1995 with a single center in Ooltewah, Tennessee, BenchMark Physical Therapy quickly grew to deliver physical therapy services through an expanding network of hundreds of clinics nationwide.

We built our business to provide exceptional patient care, empower our clinicians with the best possible education, and give back to our communities. Our physical therapists know that connecting with patients on a personal level helps to build trust. This trust is crucial in allowing patients and physical therapists to work together to make the best use of our advanced certifications and refined techniques. Our patient-centered approach to physical therapy leads to more positive outcomes for patients and physical therapists.

We believe in the professional development of our people and invest in advanced educational opportunities so they can better meet the needs of patients. Our ever-growing number of Certified Manual Therapists and board-certified Orthopedic Specialists lets us offer more treatment options to support a wide range of patients. We also believe in measuring our progress with patients and physical therapists to evaluate and optimize results continually.

Our success has several contributing factors:

  • Hiring the right therapists; those with both academic and clinical excellence
  • Unparalleled customer service and best-in-class patient care
  • Local and regional density

We strive to provide an inclusive work environment that celebrates differences and appreciates patients and practitioners alike for the incredible value they bring to our communities. In addition, we are committed to DEI and focusing on diversifying our workforce at every opportunity.
