Recently, KORT Physical Therapy opened a new wellness clinic at 9424 Brownsboro Road across from the Paddock Plaza Shopping Center. The new clinic offers a variety of wellness programs including licensed massage therapy, customized personal training, physical therapy, and the innovative Personalized Orthopedic Weight Reduction (POWR) program, a medically-based program that helps people achieve and maintain their healthiest weight through a customized dietary and fitness program monitored by a trained therapist.
“The clinic provides a comprehensive approach to our patients overall health. Our staff is dedicated to improving our community’s way of life and helping stop the spread of obesity. The POWR program allows a licensed physical therapist to guide patients through a lifestyle change program via dietary and exercise support leading them to a more active and healthy way of life,” said Dr. Emily Green, PT, DPT, OCS clinic director, KORT Summit Wellness and PT, and program director, KORT POWR Program.
According to Green, “The deep tissue, trigger point massage therapy restores muscles, rejuvenates joints and helps prevent future injuries.

“Regardless of your age or current physical condition, everyone can benefit from the programs at KORT Wellness. Our certified staff is here to help you build a better life,” said Green.
