Johnson & Hayes Physical Therapists
740 Cool Springs Blvd Suite 215, Franklin, TN 37067
Johnson and Hayes Physical Therapists is a new privately-owned clinic in Franklin/Cool Springs. First established in Huntsville in 2003 by Scott Johnson and Todd Hayes, J&H has continued to value the personal patient therapist relationship by making sure each patient works with the same physical therapist during each visit. “We want to make every visit count for our patients, we know their time is valuable. Rather than spending 10 minutes catching up with a new therapist, we want to get right to work,” states Johnson. “Staying with the same therapist adds to the patient experience, and people notice the difference,” adds Hayes. While the owners continue to treat patients in Huntsville, they have hired David Jennings, a Board-Certified Clinical Specialist in Sports Physical Therapy, to manage the Franklin clinic. He comes from Division I athletics, working as an athletic trainer at Louisiana State University and Vanderbilt University before completing the sports physical therapy residency program at the Vanderbilt Orthopaedic Institute. Jennings is trained in dry needling, but uses expert exercise progression to teach his patients how to move more efficiently without pain. “I’m excited about the opportunity to work with individuals in Franklin who want to feel better; whether that’s in competitive athletics, or playing with grandkids,” says Jennings.
