This is what every physical therapy experience is supposed to be. Hands-on. Intelligent. Caring.
PT Central has the greatest therapists! The staff is kind, welcoming, and thoughtful. I wouldn’t go anywhere else.
If you’re looking for someone caring to help get you back to normal… you must come to PT Central.
I will always come to PT Central. If I could, I would rate it more than 5 Stars. These people deserve a higher rating.
This is the best experience I’ve ever had. They’re extremely knowledgeable and truly care about helping people.

During physical therapy school, Ben completed clinical rotations in Pennsylvania with Neurologic, Orthopedic, and Vestibular clinics. He has been an active member of the APTA since 2012 and is a member of the Orthopedic section. He completed an Orthopedic Residency in 2016 to advance his manual therapy and clinical skills. He became board certified in vestibular and concussion rehabilitation in 2018 and orthopedic physical therapy in 2019.
In May 2017, Ben returned home to OKC after living overseas in Armenia for 9 months. While there he helped to provide pro-bono physical therapy, trained local physical therapists and studied the Armenian language.
Ben enjoys spending his free time at the lake and in the mountains, being with friends, running with his dog, playing sports, and traveling internationally.

Ashley started with Physical Therapy Central as a patient at a young age in 2009 and began working for the clinic in Newcastle as a tech in 2015. She is happy to finally return to the company as a PTA in Oklahoma City. Ashley looks forward to working with kids! She is excited to help people in the same way she was once helped by PTC.
Zoey is our therapy wonder-dog here at PTC! She was born on November 27, 2013 in North Carolina, and then ventured to Philadelphia where she joined Ben Buchanan at Arcadia University’s Physical Therapy School. She worked with students there, easing their stress during lab finals and stressful exams.
Now, she lives here in Oklahoma, where she loves the people but not the hot summers. She graduated from A New Leash on Life in Norman, OK with her therapy dog certification in 2017. She’s travelled to many PTC locations over the years before settling down in Northeast Oklahoma City, where she spends her time helping patients through their physical therapy and making our staff smile.
Zoey loves meeting new people and makes sure to greet every patient with a big smile! She’s a winter girl at heart, and loves lounging outside when it’s cool out (but you won’t find her outside on a hot afternoon). Her hobbies include long runs through Mesta Park, chasing squirrels, and playing tug o’ war. Our physical therapists are amazing, but let’s be honest – Zoey is the best reason to schedule your physical therapy at our clinic!
