Chris Miller PT, DPT, TPI

Owner and Physical Therapist

My interest in physical therapy started as a young athlete when I was battling injuries in order to return to competitive basketball, baseball, and golf. I graduated with a Doctorate in Physical Therapy from the Medical University of South Caroline and a Bachelor’s Degree in Exercise and Sport Science from the University of Georgia (Go Dawgs!). I have been helping people return to their favorite activities for over 10 years as a PT.​I have learned from many of the southeast’s leading specialists in providing the highest quality hands-on treatment for back pain, knee pain, and golf injuries.

My mission is to help you feel better, live with less pain and return to the activities you enjoy. I started my physical therapy practice because I was frustrated with the traditional clinic environment where patients were not getting better as quickly as I knew they could. I wanted to create an environment where the highest quality hands-on treatments could be provided on a strictly one-to-one basis, at a location each patient chooses in order to maximize convenience and minimize disruption to already busy schedules. My business grew to the point that we’re now able to provide a one-stop shop for golfers: physical therapy to eliminate pain and improve flexibility/mobility, personal training, and group classes to improve strength and speed, lessons for improved swing mechanics, putting, and course management, and simulators for practice!

I have a beautiful wife who is a physician assistant in pediatric orthopedics. We have three boys, ages 8, 5, and 3 months. In my spare time, I enjoy playing golf, spending time with my family, and watching sports. 

Providing a great life and spending time with my family is what drive me the most. Honesty, integrity, innovation, and respect are the core values most important to me and my business.

I’m the owner of Full Swing Physical Therapy and Wellness. Specialize in helping golfers to play without pain, hit longer drives, finish rounds strong, and extend playing years by decades.

Conditions I enjoy treating are back pain, sciatica, tennis elbow, golf elbow, and knee pain.

Building my company from the ground up to serve golfers’ needs has been a dream come true. I absolutely love my clients, helping them achieve incredible transformations, and helping them enjoy the game of golf more and for longer.

Patient Testimonials

Chris is top notch. We’ve been working together for a couple of months. I started off with a club head speed average of 101…this week I ***averaged*** 119 with a high of 127! When I started with Chris, stiffness was a fact of life…just getting out of bed was a struggle and my day after recovery was slow. Now, I’m looser, more flexible and a lot stronger, with no morning after soreness. Chris took the time to learn my extensive orthopedic history and designed exercises I can do that have benefitted my game and my life in general. He’ll help you play better, get longer off the tee…and live better. Get with him now…I wish I had years ago.

Chris Miller changed the way I feel on a daily basis. His PT sessions mixed with the detailed golf program has helped me with flexibility, strength, and a renewed focus on my overall health. He addressed back pain that I now have the tools to address on my own, but can call him whenever I need a tweak or have issues, which I’ve had to call for emergencies that he’s fixed right away. If you’re looking to learn how to play golf pain free or just in general be as pain free as possible during your daily lives, I recommend giving Chris a call. Learn, heal, and grow with his teachings, I promise it’ll be worth it.

PAIN FREE!! Before I met Chris I was suffering from months of extreme wrist and hand pain from a golfing injury. I had spent weeks dealing with sports medicine doctors and so called specialists who’s only answer was surgery with a 50/50 potential outcome. I have played golf for 24 years and I am in no way a professional, but the game of golf drives my life in many ways, so not being able to hold a club or swing it in any form without a nauseating amount of pain was horrible. Chris did what every other doctor and specialist before him failed to do, he cared about the injury and asked questions. He wanted to see me golfing again and he was personally invested in seeing me get the relief I needed. He had laid out a very structured and custom plan that detailed all of my at home PT exercises in between our sessions, he was always available to ask questions and help guide me through the process. Where other doctors seemed desperate to put me under the knife and potentially leave me with never having full use in my left hand again, Chris instead took his time to find the root cause of the issue and worked diligently with me to get it fixed. In only a few short weeks I went from wondering if I could ever play golf again.. to playing or practicing 4-5 times a week with no issues. Chris was even willing to come meet me for the PT sessions in order to work with my very busy schedule. Truly top-notch, I am very thankful that I found Chris and cannot recommend his services enough.
