Integrity, Honesty, and Compassion BenchMark Physical Therapy Pooler

BenchMark Physical Therapy, located in Pooler, GA is a leading outpatient physical therapy clinic with convenient scheduling, patient-focused care, and personalized treatment plans. They are committed to treating each patient promptly with integrity, honesty, and compassion. 

The location opened in 2016, and Clinic Director Katherine Osborne, PT, DPT, CLT joined in 2017. “It’s been going very well, and we were able to stay open and stay busy throughout the last year despite the pandemic.” 

Dr. Osborne grew up in Brooklet, GA, and says she loves working with her hometown community.  She says “I became a Physical Therapist because it is one of the few medical specialties that is completely ‘hands on,’ which means I am able to build a rapport—and have a special relationship—with my patients. Being a Physical Therapist puts me in a position to help people feel better and restore better functioning in a one-on-one environment.” 

What is PT?

Physical therapy is a method of treatment for certain physical impairments, disabilities, and injuries. Physical therapists are highly-educated, licensed health care professionals who may help patients reduce pain and improve or re-store mobility, in many cases without expensive surgery. At BenchMark Physical Therapy, expect a thorough evaluation and a plan of treatment for your specific diagnosis. Most courses of treatments run 12 to 14 visits, often several times a week.

Most commonly treated are back pain, neck pain, injured workers, accident victims and post-operative (such as knee or hip replacement) patients. Dr. Osborne is also a certified therapist for Lymphedema Management, and has a background in pediatric PT. She is joined in the clinic by Michael Giamanco, PT, DPT, CSCS. 

Dr. Osborne urges people in pain to give physical therapy a chance. “We can work towards pain reduction, reducing or eliminating the need for prescription pain medication. The ‘no pain no gain’ idea is completely false! Therapy doesn’t need to be painful.” In addition, they work with individuals to develop fitness and wellness programs for healthier and more active lifestyles.
