Ford Physical Therapy, providing relief for patients with pain, injuries, headaches, and TMJ dysfunction in Tupelo and Northeast Mississippi, opened Feb. 1, 2018 under the ownership of Aaron Ford, Doctor of Physical Therapy, who had previously been operating a satellite office there.
We are dedicated to effective, hands-on, one-on-one patient care augmented with prescribed exercises between visits. We recognize that your time is valuable and pain impacts your quality of life, so our approach to care is specifically designed to give you relief and recovery with notably faster results and fewer visits needed.
By seeing the same physical therapist each time without technicians or aides, we are aware of all the subtle changes in your condition and can respond quickly and effectively to ensure your physical therapy is customized to each phase of your recovery.
We are also distinguished by our straightforward approach. After a thorough evaluation during your first visit, we will tell you honestly if we believe physical therapy will help you. If we do not believe we can make a difference for you, we will advise you to return to your doctor.
Our clinic is located at 2633 Traceland Drive in Tupelo and we are open Monday to Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. or after hours by appointment.
We offer manual therapy, prescribed exercises, dry needling, post-operative rehabilitation, therapy for sports injuries and workplace injuries.
Dr. Ford has a distinguished reputation for the effectiveness of his treatment for pain-related diagnoses quickly and effectively.
Aaron Ford, PT, DPT, clinic owner
Aaron Ford, Doctor of Physical Therapy, brings extensive training and varied experience to his clinic, Ford Physical Therapy, serving patients in Tupelo and Northeast Mississippi.
He has acquired a distinguished reputation for his success in treating patients with Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMJ), headaches and fibromyalgia, as well as those impacted by back and neck pain, sports injuries, and workplace injuries.
A native of Booneville, Mississippi, Ford attended Northeast Community College and then went on to Mississippi State University to receive his Bachelor in Clinical Exercise Physiology. He then achieved his Doctor of Physical Therapy degree from the University of Mississippi Medical Center.
He is also a Certified Mulligan Practitioner, a mobilization with movement approach to manual therapy designed to assist patient’s movement with the application of pain-free hands on techniques.
Additionally he is a certified practitioner of Integrative Dry Needling, a highly effective physical therapy treatment for a multitude of musculoskeletal and neuromuscular conditions.
He is also completing his certification training for the McKenzie Method for Back Pain and Neck Pain designed to help patients reduce pain quickly and return to normal daily activities. It minimizes the risk of recurring pain and minimizes the number of visits need to the physical therapist.
Ford says he went into physical therapy because he was always interested in how the body moves and works and he wanted to help people enjoy active living. He grew up playing sports himself and was a student athletic trainer at Mississippi State and helped athletes involved in football, men’s tennis and softball.
He still stays active by competing in triathlons (swimming, biking and running) and serves as a race director of the Tupelo Sprint Triathlon.
He accumulated experience in his field in hospital settings and private clinics before taking over a satellite clinic in Tupelo. He now operates his own clinic there, Ford Physical Therapy.
When he is not working, he enjoys spending time with his wife and three children, going to church, competing in triathlons and playing the guitar and piano.
