Zach Rethorn DPT

Zach Rethorn, PT, DPT

Dr. Zachary D. Rethorn is a board-certified orthopedic physical therapist and certified health coach with expertise in orthopedics, persistent pain, and health behavior change.


Dr. Rethorn earned his DPT degree from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga and his Bachelor of Science in Exercise Science from Belmont University. He completed a residency in orthopedic physical therapy through Benchmark Rehab Institute and is a PhD student in health promotion and wellness.


Dr. Rethorn is also a faculty development resident at Duke University, with research interests in primary and secondary prevention, physical activity, and health equity. He has presented at state and national conferences on topics related to orthopedic physical therapy and health promotion.

What is telehealth physical therapy?

Physical (or physio) therapy encompasses rehabilitation, injury prevention, health promotion, and overall physical wellbeing. Physical therapists use a biomechanically-based, whole body approach to treatment, considering every patient’s individual lifestyle and engaging them in their own treatment. Rethorn PT applies the same tried-and-true clinical methods of evaluation and treatment to diagnose and help heal a variety of musculoskeletal concerns within a virtual clinic setting. We focus on the science of movement to restore and maximize strength, function, and motion.

How can health coaching help me?

We all respond differently to health challenges, and the process of positive change is unique to each individual. Instead of promoting a singular lifestyle or method, Rethorn PT helps you find and experiment with what works for you. As highly educated guides in the fields of nutrition, wellness, bio-individuality and mentoring, we help you discover your own way.
