Why Choose Premier
Premier PT is hands-on, one-to-one & patient-centered.
At Premier Physical Therapy, you are treated as an individual. Our patient-centered care means you are very involved in your own treatment. We want to focus solely on you while you are a patient, so we offer private rooms for our patients to get the best quality treatment.
Dr. Colleen Karr, PT, DPT does not believe in "NO PAIN, NO GAIN". Instead, she believes in first minimizing pain, through use of hands-on therapies including massage and joint mobilization. She then focuses on gaining strength and flexibility through an individually-designed exercise program that fits the patients schedule and goals. This approach allows you to recover more quickly, and avoids compensation patterns that can occur if strengthening is introduced before pain is controlled.
Dr. Karr does not simply look at one body part - she looks at how the rest of the body affects that part. Working with the entire body helps prevent reinjury.
With over 28 years of experience, Dr. Karr has served as a mentor and consult to other physical therapists as well as a clinical instructor for Duke, ECU, UNC and Howard University. She also has assisted in teaching physical therapy continuing education courses. Many of her patients are physical therapists and physicians seeking an expert to treat their condition.
