Here at Chilton County Physical Therapy, we assess our patients and improve both not only symptoms but also the underlying root cause We focus on dynamic movement patterns to improve functional motion, and also athletic performance. We use this approach to make your daily walks, yardwork, and general activities more efficient and less pain-provoking.



CCPT was established in January of 2013 by Michael Kinne and Katie Hall-Kinne in order to fulfill the dream of treating patients in the manner these two physical therapists would treat their own family. With a history of working for larger companies whose metrics for profit were the driving force behind their motivation, Michael and Katie believed there was a better way to concentrate on patient care without the primary focus being on profit. CCPT came to fruition with the help of friends in the physical therapy industry who guided them in the business startup process. Almost 8 years later, CCPT is a thriving small business, still working hard to keep a small, family oriented atmosphere, driven to provide the best skilled care that is possible for every one of their patients.




Chilton County Physical Therapy is an outpatient Physical Therapy clinic whose physical therapists exceed clinical standards through specialized training and continual pursuit of clinical knowledge. We strive to treat each patient who walks into our clinic as if they were a part of our own family. Our goal is to restore health to Chilton County and surrounding areas through skilled hands-on treatments and dynamic, innovative exercises backed by the latest research. We work to achieve each patient’s full recovery and optimal performance whether that be home, work, or at play.
