About Us

I tell my patients that Upstate PT is the “Chick-Fil-A” of physical therapy!

Who We Serve

While many physical therapy clinics provide care to all types of patients, Upstate Physical Therapy specializes in orthopedic rehabilitation. 

If you’ve had an orthopedic surgery or are trying to avoid an orthopedic surgery, Upstate Physical Therapy provides the most specialized environment to maximize your potential for a successful outcome. 

What Makes Upstate Special

Upstate Physical Therapy is unique in this healthcare environment in that it is not owned by any physician group or hospital. 

We are able to provide individual patient care where every patient is treated with the compassion, respect and quality of care that they deserve but is so rare in today’s healthcare environment. Because of our independence, we not only are able to provide the best care available to patients with orthopedic injuries, but also the most cost effective care. 

In a national study of private practice clinics, Upstate Physical Therapy took care of our patients cheaper than 98% of other clinics.  Upstate Physical Therapy typically saves patients over half of what it would cost to go to a hospital based physical therapy facility.  

Not only do you receive the best care, but you also save money as we bill less per patient than most of our competitors.  

You may have heard:

physical therapy means pain and torture…

But we work hard to create an environment that is both fun and enjoyable!  We strongly believe most patients make the most physical improvements when pain is minimized. 

We do not believe in being overly aggressive in “pushing” patients to make them move better.  Instead, we work hard to educate the patient in their role in their recovery and we work alongside them to more comfortably and more successfully achieve the goals that the patient, doctor and therapist have.

Our History

Upstate Physical Therapy was co-founded in 2004 and is owned by Jimmy Huff, PT and David Keese, PT.

Both worked several years at the The Hughston Sports Medicine Hospital and Hughston Clinic in Columbus, Georgia. 

As one of the top orthopedic facilities in the world, Jimmy and David worked hand in hand with some of the best doctors and therapists within the orthopedic community. 

It was at the Hughston Clinic where they developed a specialty that is unrivaled in the Anderson area for working with patients following orthopedic procedures.
