It's #PTMonth, a great time to spotlight our own physical therapists who make a difference in patient lives each day. Meet Samantha Hart, PT, DPT, OCS from our Clarksville, TN location.

Samantha explains "The best part of my job as a physical therapist is the opportunity to meet a variety of people, hear their stories, and get to know them over their plan of care. The fact that I get to make my patients feel better and reach their goals at the same time, makes it even more enjoyable." #SaturdaySpotlight #BenchMarkStrong

Don’t forget that we are also still offering virtual appointments in order to give you all even more access to our therapists and their services! Let us help you become a success story!

“The whole staff at BenchMark is wonderful! I came in with extreme pain in my neck. Amanda and Tiffany worked with me and gave me home exercises that were very helpful. I would recommend Amanda as a physical therapist to anyone. She is kind and knowledgeable. Tiffany was a wonderful PT student!”

[06/02/20]   It's a good day for a testimonial! Happy #TestimonialTuesday!

"The PT care I received was outstanding. The instructions and technique demonstrations of the exercises were well done and easy to understand. The recovery plan developed by the staff was excellent and most fitting to my situation. The staff was very personable and interactive. They are skilled in relationship building, which made visits comfortable. My homework plan was always viable, doable and appropriate. Mere words will never be able to adequately express my appreciation for helping me return to an active life."

Let us design a personalized treatment plan for you and your specific needs! If you are not quite ready to come into our clinic just yet, no worries! Our therapists are trained to effectively treat you VIRTUALLY through our telehealth services during this time. You can call our office at 910-790-1976 to schedule your visit!

As many states begin to loosen restrictions on “stay-at-home” mandates, we continue to take every precaution and measure possible to ensure that you have a safe and clean environment to begin or continue your therapy treatment. Our highly trained staff has always practiced industry-exceeding techniques to ensure our facilities, linens, and equipment are disinfected and handled properly each and every day.


Another #TestimonialTuesday coming at you!

"I can't thank Amanda and the staff at BenchMark enough for all they have done for me. Prior to and after my surgery, I was able to get back to normal life and activities. For that, I am forever grateful. Throughout my treatment and recovery, they have become like family to me. Amanda and the staff at BenchMark Monkey Junction are simply the best!"

We are giving you the biggest air high five for all of your hard work!! Thank you for giving us the opportunity to help you return to all of the things you love to do! It was such a pleasure getting to know you!

[04/21/20]   Happy to be here to share another patient testimony for #TestimonialTuesday!

#BenchMarkStrong #BenchMarkPT


We know that the need for physical and occupational therapy does not stop during times of global crisis, and we realize how important it is for you to continue your plan of care amidst all of the changes taking place around us.

While all of our clinical locations remain open during normal business hours, we are now offering telehealth as an option for those patients who want to take additional safety precautions.

Telehealth physical therapy is simply physical therapy services that are provided over a technology platform, instead of in a clinic.

To schedule, go to

Our therapists will:
• Utilize video conferencing through computer, tablet, or smartphone
• Work one-on-one with you to assess your condition and provide real-time feedback
• Provide modifications and recommendations on current programs and exercises
• Continue your PT progress without disruption or regression
As always, we practice stringent, CDC-recommended procedures and utilize appropriate products for cleaning our surfaces, linens, and hands before and after each patient treatment. We have instituted detailed action plans should our clinics be affected by the COVID-19 virus.

We commit to providing the same level of quality care that you have come to expect from us. We are here for you. We are here for the community.

It's that time of the week! It's a privilege to be able to highlight our awesome patients each #TestimonialTuesday. Thanks for all of your hard work and we are honored to have been the ones to help you on this journey!

"Great experience!! Amanda listened and came up with a plan that actually helped me improve my overall movements. My scoliosis was considered a part of the overall problem and it was addressed properly. No other PT has ever done that! I really appreciate her willingness to listen to her patients."

Happy Testimonial Tuesday!! We are thrilled to hear that you had such a positive experience here with us at Myrtle Grove! We hope you continue to grow stronger in your journey post-therapy, but if you need us in the future, we'll be here and happy to help!

"Great experience! All of the staff is friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. Melissa was fantastic! Very encouraging and put a program in place to meet my goals. I would highly recommend her and this location."

It's Testimonial Tuesday! We love hearing what our patients have to say about their experience here at BenchMark Physical Therapy. Here's a patient experience that may have you questioning what you thought you knew about physical therapy and its benefits. This patient came into our office with debilitating symptoms from a vestibular disorder, such as dizziness and loss of balance, that seemingly came out of nowhere. In just a few short weeks, our Clinic Director Amanda Montgomery PT, DPT was able to get him back to doing everything he could do before and more!

"I went from barely enough balance to stand up straight to doing complex activities on a balance mat in 4 weeks. The entire staff was awesome to work with and the results were nothing short of amazing. Thanks to everyone at BenchMark for giving me my life back."

If these symptoms sound familiar to you or someone you know, don't hesitate to give us a call!

Happy Halloween, from our team to yours!!

White is the color chosen to represent those who have been affected by lung cancer. Our clinic showed support for these individuals and their families by wearing white this #WearItWednesday and donating to the Pillars with Purpose Benevolent Fund for Cancer Research and Patient Care. We encourage all of our patients to keep the support going throughout the last week of October!

#NPTM #GetPT1st

For this week's #WearItWednesday, we supported brain cancer awareness by wearing the color grey and donating $1 to the Pillars with Purpose Benevolent Fund for Cancer Research and Patient Care. A big thank you to all of our patients who have decided to join us in supporting this incredible cause!

And SO much more! #NPTM #GetPT1st

Our clinic is participating in #WearItWednesday with #PillarsWithPurpose! We will be wearing a different color representing a different type of cancer each Wednesday throughout the month of October and also donating $1 each week to support the Pillars with Purpose Benevolent Fund for Cancer Research and Patient Care. This week's color is pink to represent all of those who have fought, continue to fight, or have lost their battle against breast cancer. We encourage all of our patients to join in and support this incredible cause!

#GetPT1st #NPTM

October is National Physical Therapy Month! In an effort to raise more awareness, we will continue to post little reminders of the benefits that physical therapy has to offer you! #NPTM #GetPT1st

Staff meeting turned baby shower! We have so much love and appreciation for our Senior Office Coordinator, Laura Barnes, and are more than excited for her to embark on this new chapter. Although we will miss her dearly, we cannot wait to meet the new addition to the BenchMark family. We wish you all the best, Laura, and will be counting down the days until you return!

[04/12/19]   Another patient success story to end the work week on a high note!

"When I first started this therapy, my left shoulder to my hand was painful and many times numb to the point of being "frozen." Brady showed me how to exercise my arm/shoulder to achieve a much better range of motion. I am amazed at the difference I feel in this arm. Brady also trained me to use the gym and straps at home to stay flexible and to remain strong. The hand exercises were brilliant! I believed I would lose my hands to arthritis...These exercises will help keep me flexible and mobile. If I experience problems, Brady tells me to return for help which I will do. Thanks, Brady!!"
