Officials with NuLife Physical Therapy, Inc. plan to open its newly renovated facility in Portland on Aug. 24. The business will be housed adjacent to the Portland Prescription Shop.

NuLife will be open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., but they plan to have a flexible schedule to accommodate the work schedules of individual clients as the need arises.

Staff at NuLife will include Administrator Gretchen Cox, Physical Therapist Michael Lee, and PTA Les Flatt. A registered nurse with 20 years of experience, Cox is the former Director of Operations for Amedisys Home Health in Portland. Lee has been practicing physical therapy for 34 years with the last 15 years in the Portland and Gallatin areas. Flatt was born in Portland, graduated from Portland High School and has been providing physical therapy for eight years in Portland.

“Michael, Les and I are excited to be able to have this opportunity to come together and not only be of service but to become leaders in providing outpatient physical therapy,” Cox said.

NuLife will offer a wide variety of treatments and rehab for knee replacements, hip replacements, shoulder surgeries, sports injuries, post surgical interventions, orthopedic rehabilitation, hand therapy, neuromuscular conditions, arthritis, osteoporosis, back pain, endurance athlete training and strengthening, and other conditions that limit your ability to walk and function due to pain or chronic conditions.

Patients may be referred to NuLife by a doctor or by calling and requesting an evaluation with Lee.

“Our therapists are passionate about this community and helping the Portland and surrounding communities to ‘Create a New You’,” Cox said.

NuLife will be hosting an Open House for the public to tour the new clinic and talk to the therapists, Lee and Flatt. The date will be announced in the next coming weeks.

For an evaluation contact Gretchen Cox at 615-325-9007 to schedule and inquire about insurance coverages and treatment packages.
