Welcome to Semmes Murphey Physical Therapy

Your physician has referred you to physical therapy to assist in your healing and recovery. Our staff provides integrated therapeutic treatment to help you return to an active lifestyle. Our approach is based on a traditional, medical biomechanical model which enables our staff to provide individualized care. 

We look forward to helping you achieve your goal of an improved lifestyle!

What to expect on your first visit

Your physical therapist will review your medical history and perform a comprehensive biomechanical evaluation. You will then be prescribed a treatment plan of care based on the results of the evaluation. The plan of care may include pain control measures, therapeutic exercise, and manual therapy. A home therapeutic exercise program and education will be provided and revised at each follow-up visit. 

For future visits, please wear or bring loose, comfortable clothing, including sneakers. 


To assist you in your care, consistent and timely attendance to your physical therapy is extremely important.


If you must cancel, please call 901.259.8401 prior to your appointment so that we can fill that spot appropriately.
