Summit Strength Physical Therapy is extremely pleased to announce the opening of a second facility in Blue Springs, Missouri. It is with great pride that Scott Knoche PT Dip MDT CSCS, owner of SSPT for 16 years, graduate of Blue Springs High School, returns home to his roots in Blue Springs, Missouri. The location is inside Blue Springs Fitness at 1300 NW State Route 7 Suite 100, Blue Springs, MO 64014. (we had a short-term location in Freedom Fitness from July 5 – October 29, 2017)
Scott has 31 years of physical therapy practice experience. He first began his career in St. Louis, Missouri for three years after receiving his degree in Physical Therapy from the University of Missouri-Columbia. He then practiced for 11 years in Blue Springs before beginning his current business, Summit Strength Physical Therapy in Lee’s Summit. For almost 30 years Scott and his team have treated many patients from the eastern Jackson County area that have chosen to travel to Lee’s Summit for SSPT’s well-deserved reputation for outstanding, results-oriented therapeutic care.
Summit Strength Physical Therapy has been committed to one-on-one treatment sessions that focus on aggressive mechanical therapies and education to teach patients self-treatment strategies in order to manage painful mechanical problems. The overall program of strength training, improved balance to decrease risk of falls and the goal of returning to normal functional activities of daily life requires hard work and perseverance by the patients, therapists and families.
At Summit Strength Physical Therapy we are dedicated to providing the very best care, focusing on research-based training and treatment modalities. Summit Strength Physical Therapy is known for being on the cutting edge of innovation by using Blood Flow Restriction Therapies to help enhance safety during minimal weight-bearing strategies for post-surgical and traumatized joints. We are also working closely with the University of Missouri-Columbia in the infant stages of the acclaimed Mizzou BioJoint Program.
We are excited and motivated to expand our services into the Blue Springs marketplace. Tommy Frevert DPT and his wife Lindsey Frevert OTR, occupational therapist, and their two young children live in south Blue Springs. It has been his dream to help build a thriving practice in Blue Springs over the next several years. Tommy brings a high level of athletic training background to improve patients’ sports performance and return to activities. Tommy has played professional arena football as a Special Teams kicker, most recently for the Philadelphia Soul. He received Kicker of the Year award in 2015 and 2016 and brings a unique perspective to sports-related rehabilitation.
Saige Laughlin PTA will also be working at this location. She not only is a great clinician she also understands the benefits from being a patient after two shoulder surgeries needed because of her rodeo sports activities.
All our staff is committed to continuing the excellent care model throughout the eastern Jackson County area. The new facility in Blue Springs will help fulfill a need for patients who live in the towns of Independence, Blue Springs, Buckner, Sibley, Grain Valley, Oak Grove, Odessa, Bates City, Lone Jack, Lexington, Napoleon, Richmond, Concordia and Holden who wish to receive a higher level of care.
Scott, Tommy and Tami are looking forward to SEEING YOU SOON at the new Blue Springs location!
