With plans to open for business on Thursday, Aug. 16, couple Melissa and Nick Cantrell, owners of Cantrell Physical Therapy (CPT) will expand their business to Mt. Juliet.

Though the business already has clientele due to its Hermitage site, the Cantrells hope Mt. Juliet’s growing population will provide new patients.

Unlike the majority of other physical therapy businesses, CPT is not owned by a larger corporation, but is a therapist-owned company. This allows for a more intimate setting.

“We pride ourselves with giving more personal one on one healthcare to our patients,” stated Melissa Cantrell.

CPT employs the best of best of the best, with all of its therapist-staff having a Doctorate of Physical Therapy.

Ryan Humphries, the physical therapist who will run the Mt. Juliet location alongside Certified Personal Trainer and Assistant Vanessa Hampton is eager to open up the business’ doors. “I grew up in Mt. Juliet,” said Humphries, “I’m really just looking to serve in the Mt. Juliet community.”

According to Nick Cantrell, the move to Mt. Juliet is not being made to break away from the Hermitage branch; instead, the business’ goal is for Humphries to create his own identity within the community.

“It’s our occupation to serve our clients in the best way we can,” stated Humphries.

CPT follows through with this obligation by extending its hours: Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays: 7 a.m.-4 p.m.; Tuesdays and Thursdays: 9 a.m.-6 p.m.; and the Hermitage branch being open Saturdays 8 a.m.-12 p.m. CPT also accepts all types of insurance, self pay and self referrals. Along with this, CPT guarantees to see patients within 24-48 hours after being contacted.

As well as the many other conveniences CPT offers, the Mt. Juliet branch will be offering post-rehab services through Hampton.

With 17 years in the practice and six years of ownership, Nick Cantrell is sure to continue CPT’s success by bringing it to the Mt. Juliet community.
