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.

Allison was born and raised in Edmond, Oklahoma where she was active in sports and academics from a young age, competing in soccer while graduating as a valedictorian from her high school class. Following high school, she attended the University of Oklahoma in Norman, OK. As an undergraduate student she was involved in many organizations and earned her Bachelor’s degree in Health and Exercise Science from the College of Arts and Sciences. After graduating, Allison elected to stay in Oklahoma to pursue her dream of becoming a Physical Therapist at the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center. During the 3-year program she completed rotations at Select Physical Therapy, The Children’s Center Rehabilitation Hospital, OU Medical Center Trauma ICU, and Physical Therapy Central of Yukon. These experiences provided her with the opportunity to work with a variety of patients and diagnoses and broaden her knowledge of orthopedics. She graduated in May 2019, earning her Doctorate of Physical Therapy.
Her areas of interest in physical therapy include manual therapy, orthopedic physical therapy, and sports rehabilitation. She is an active member of the APTA and OPTA and plans to pursue a Manual Therapy Certification in order to provide the best care for her patients.
Allison currently lives in Oklahoma City and enjoys spending time with friends and family, reading books at local coffee shops, participating in outdoor activities, and cheering on the Oklahoma Sooners. She is excited to be a part of the Physical Therapy Central team and looks forward to serving the Yukon community.
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!
