BenchMark Rehab Partners sponsors triathlete for IRONMAN® Chattanooga
As one who helps his patients get on the track to become healthier every day, Jon Poe is certainly taking his own advice. Jon Poe is a physical therapist, athletic trainer and area director for Peak Physical Therapy, a BenchMark Rehab Partners brand. Since 1999, he has spent his weekdays practicing, specializing in outpatient orthopedic, sports and manual physical therapy in McKinney, Texas. But on his weekends and before the day even begins for most, Poe is an IRONMAN®. He is a 3 time IRONMAN® finisher in the Lake Placid, N.Y., Panama City Beach, Fla. and Tempe, Ariz. races. Additionally, he has finished 10 IRONMAN 70.3® races. At the height of his journey, Poe qualified for the IRONMAN 70.3® world championship in 2007. Poe said, “I believe that as a physical therapist I should model a healthy lifestyle for my patients.” He explains that is one of his biggest motivations in staying fit. Although it has been 3 years since his last IRONMAN event, he is getting back on the saddle for his fourteenth race in Chattanooga, Tenn. on Sunday, May 22. BenchMark Rehab Partners is proud to have Jon Poe as our sponsored athlete.

BenchMark Rehab Institute’s Fellowship in Orthopaedic Manual Physical Therapy acquires candidacy from American Board of Physical Therapy Residency and Fellowship Education May 12, 2016, Ooltewah, TN – BenchMark Rehab Institute
has achieved candidacy status for its Fellowship in Orthopaedic Manual Physical Therapy through The American Board of Physical Therapy Residency and Fellowship Education, ABPTRFE.
A fellowship program is designed for physical therapists who have already achieved board-certified specialization in orthopaedics. The program is intended to further develop the therapist to a level of advanced subspecialty practice in orthopaedic manual physical therapy, OMPT, thereby equipping them to provide the highest level of patient care possible. The program requires over 600 hours of advanced didactic study and mentored clinical practice. Graduates of the fellowship program are eligible to be Fellows of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Manual Physical Therapists, AAOMPT. According to the AAOMPT, only 1 in 200–approximately 0.5 percent—of physical therapists nationwide have achieved that distinction. According to the ABPTRFE website, there are only 42 accredited programs in the United States and there have been 1304 graduates from those programs between 1999 and 2015. “I’m thankful for the excellent team of faculty and staff that has brought us to this point and will continue to foster growth in the future,” said Daniel Maddox, BenchMark Rehab Institute Director. “The program is designed to cultivate expert clinicians who exhibit technical hands-on mastery and the absolute highest level of evidence-informed and patient-centered clinical reasoning. Our hope is to cultivate clinical leaders who will truly inspire and empower patients and other professionals alike to achieve their very best”. BenchMark plans to enroll the 2016 cohort in the coming weeks. BenchMark Rehab Institute
