Louisville's #1 Choice For Natural Low Back Pain Relief

We Challenge The Dogma That You Need To "Slow Down" As You Age

Don't take our word for it. Listen below how Gary went from not being able to get out of bed (due to back pain) to once again enjoying his life and passions

What Are The Benefits Of Physical Therapy for Your Back Pain?

  • We treat patients just like you every day. They walk through the doors of our physical therapy clinic in a low-energy state, feeling stressed, depressed, and sleep-deprived. 
  • We quickly identify the source of their pain and get to work – and after just a few sessions when we’ve worked our magic, educated them, and gifted them with a “toolbox” of therapeutic stretching and strengthening exercises.
  • They leave the clinic with a spring in their step and hope in their heart again. 
  • Let me tell you, nobody is happier or more excited to see them improve than us. That’s for sure. Our practice is built on this.
  • The more we know, the better we can help you get relief, get a plan, and get back to the things you love.

Response from the owner: Thank you Bill, for the 5 star review. It's great to be a part of your wellness journey. You are now forever a part of our ProActive Family and we love watching your progression.
Been a regular runner for more than 10 years and have been dealing with lower back pain for the last several years. Finally I had enough. I went to Proactive and Dr Brandon listened to everything I had to say and put together a treatment plan. He showed me how to take care of my aches and pains and in the end, what he did for me helped me get back out there with no pain. Thanks to everyone at Proactive. You guys rock!!
Response from the owner: Hi Allen , thank you for the lovely review , that was awesome .I completely forget to mention to you that we are doing an event here on Tuesday June 11th from 4-7. We will have a dietician , a lifestyle medicine Dr., sample yoga classes , 502 Wellness and Brandon will be doin some dry needling. Of course , you’re welcome to bring anyone you like . We’d love to have you with us ! Have a wonderful Memorial Day Weekend
I am an avid golfer and have battled full on tendinitis in both my elbows for what would be 2 years this March. In May of 2023 I was forced to have surgery in my left elbow due to a severe tendon tear. My right elbow hurt, but didn’t need surgery. After finishing my rehab and being cleared back after 3 months I noticed two things. One, my left arm did not really feel recovered; and two my right arm even after resting for 3 months still was plagued with tendinitis. The goal of the physical therapy I was receiving seemed to be much less than the goal I was trying to achieve….playing golf often.In August of 2023 I was recommended to ProActive by a friend and have never looked back. The first thing Brandon did with me was getting me active in a smart way while also conducting physical therapy. He was adamant that the longer I sat around and didn’t push myself, the longer this recovery would take. He gave me the confidence to strengthen my body and showed exercises to strengthen my entire body while also strengthening my tendons. He pushed me to get back to golfing, probably before I would have on my own, which turned out to be a huge psychological boost.I am very happy I went to ProActive and am sure my recovery from the surgery and elbow tendinitis was vastly accelerated due to the treatment I was given.
Response from the owner: Ted, we are truly joyous about your progression and getting to get back to golf. Thank you for not only your kind words, but your trust in us to get you to this point. It's exciting to hear you say your playing again consistently. Nobody should have to live without the thing they love doing. You also worked hard to get to this point. It's a team effort and we hope you know that we always enjoy getting to see you. You are now a part of our ProActive Family , you are appreciated.
i can be a very nervous person when doing something new, but everyone at Pro Active made my therapy for my knee and ankle so much less stressful. They are attentive, understanding, and patient throughout all of it. They truly are the best at what they do, and will make you feel so comfortable every step of your therapy. I should’ve started way sooner!!
Response from the owner: Thank you for your kind words, Sydney. We are thrilled to hear that we could make your therapy experience less stressful and help you feel comfortable every step of the way. We appreciate your feedback and are glad you chose ProActive for your knee and ankle therapy.
I have known Brandon since 2019 and have worked with him several times to improve my strength and stability. I came back recently to figure out why I was having shoulder pain. Brandon took the time to test my shoulder to determine what was causing the pain. We then came up with a treatment schedule and exercises that are easy to do anywhere which helps with my busy schedule. Brandon and Adrienne are top notch and they’re there for whatever you need. 10/10 recommend this dynamic duo.
Response from the owner: Kate, thank you for putting your trust in us. We love having you with us, always bringing a positive energy to do the work to be at your best all the time. You're a joy and we value you and your support.
This is a great solution if you are not afraid of hard work. The relief I have felt can not be easily described other than to say I am getting back to the old me.After a broken back, ProActive helped me to avoid surgery and I have no long term side effects or pain after my recovery from the injury.Now I am bicycling, snowboarding, golfing, and enjoying life in the way I want to!
Response from the owner: Thank you John for your honesty and sharing your experience. You are the reason we are here, we believe everyone should have the opportunity to enjoy their life the way they want to. Your an inspiration to us an many others, more than you know. You are doing the work, and it's paying off every day. We appreciate you!
I can’t express how much I LOVE proactive rehab! They’re the most dynamic team. Originally I wanted to expand my knowledge so I could refer my orthopedic patients to their facility. But then I decided to use their services for myself. They have so many options to choose from not limited to only physical therapy but a gym, massage with an emphasis on myofascial tissue release, and even medical grade PEMF therapy which is incredibly healing, it has helped me tremendously. They’re professional yet approachable. You’re not gonna be treated like another patient rather you’ll have high quality care. They truly do care about you!
Response from the owner: Molly, we love you too! Thank you for your kind words. What you just described is always our goal every day, with every one. Seeing you feel better and better , brings us more joy than you know. You are forever a part of our family and we will always care about you. We feel blessed to know you and thankful for the opportunity to be a part of your wellness.
I’ve been very impressed by ProActive. The staff is wonderful! They are knowledgeable,, personable, and extremely helpful.
Response from the owner: Ken, thank you for your feedback. This is most helpful for us as a business in helping others find the right fit for their wellness. We are all happy to have you with us as a part of our ProActive Family. You are a joy to be around!
Everyone in the office care about you. They are very knowledgeable and work to help you get back to the physical activity you want. They listen as well as watch you as you do the exercises you need to be the best you can be. By far they are the best choice in physical therapy and training.
Response from the owner: Thank you Kathy for your positive and kind review. We do care about you and we all love that you feel that. We enjoy having you with us and love watching your progress.
My experience at ProActive was beyond wonderful and beneficial. Brandon, and the rest of the team at ProActive, were kind, knowledgeable, and hospitable. The facility is top-notch and clean. I had an excellent experience, and they made me a game-plan that fit my budget for when I need to come back and see them for my neck/backpain. ProActive is worth it!
Response from the owner: Thank you Joe, we appreciate your kind words. Everything you just shared is what we always aim for. We loved having you with us and look forward to having you back.

I love Proactive Physical Therapy! The entire staff is super welcoming and hospitable. They make sure you get exactly what you need.I came to Proactive because I was experiencing lower back for several years with no improvement after going through a treatment program by a different PT company. From my very first consultation and evaluation to now week 3 of my sessions, I’ve felt heard every step of the way and feel like I have a treatment plan catered to my unique needs and goals.I’m excited to finish my treatment program so I can participate in the personal training services they offer.

Appointment with Emily Crable in Dr. Brandon Evans’ office went great. I needed some functional movement/tissue massage/stretching for old injuries. Feeling better and standing taller! Thanks Emily-

I had the pleasure of experiencing a massage therapy session with Jessica, and it was nothing short of exceptional. ProActive's skill, attention to detail, and genuine care for their clients truly set this experience apart. I wholeheartedly recommend visiting them - your body and mind will thank you!

Proactive is terrific. Took care of my golf injury right away. Brandon is great. However, as good as Rambo( Brandon) is, Adrienne is the Superstar 👍
Response from the owner: Thank you Todd for the fantastic review and your kind words. We agree, Brandon is indeed (Rambo)and we strive to all be Superstars for all of our patients as you are a part of our family. You also made Adrienne's week by calling her a Superstar!

Response from the owner: Jason thank you so much for the review! I see that you all are doing awesome things at Title Boxing!I look forward to working together in the future to help individuals in the louisville metro area achieve and maintain an active and healthy lifestyle!
First time today. Was AMAZING. I learned a great deal between and physical therapy massage and a relaxation massage. I came it for my shoulders and neck. I like how you see listened too and get explanations on each step and why. Great insight and i will be back. 👍👍❤️❤️

Response from the owner: We appreciate you Brian and so glad that we were able to be a part of your wellness. It has been a pleasure getting to know you and having you as a part of our ProActive family.
I feel fortunate to have discovered ProActive! I had hip replacement less than 2 months ago and had had physical therapy while in “rehab” and later at home. I was impressed that so much time was spent to assess my condition and what I desired as a successful outcome of physical therapy. A personalized plan was developed, which I have been following with Dr. Jessica, who is one of the best physical therapists I have ever had. Besides being knowledgeable, she answers questions I have about the exercises. We have a full hour of therapy, unlike home or rehab PT which is usually 40-45 minutes. I can now see myself enjoying yoga again (and getting up from the mat without help). The ProActive environment is always welcoming and bright!
Response from the owner: Jo Anne, thank you for your kind words. We also feel fortunate to be able to be a part of this journey with you. What you described is our reason why we do this and always our hope that we can accomplish that exact feeling that you feel. We always look forward to seeing you and watching your amazing progress each week.
I have been seeing Jessica twice a week for a few weeks and I have already made so much progress! They also make it an amazing atmosphere as soon as you walk in. Everyone is so nice and personal:) I love it and would highly recommend!!!
Response from the owner: Ella, thank you for your kind words. We all love having you here with us, and look forward to seeing your smiling face. The big win is hearing you say you've already made progress. That's amazing! We can't to see all the things you will do when your 100%. You are appreciated!
This place is outstanding!! The key is that all of the treatments are custom to your specific needs vs cookie cutter. I was looking for help after an MRI showed 2 herniated disc. I spent 3 months in standard PT with little improvement. I had left leg and heel pain and weakness. I have seen more progress here in 3 weeks than I did before in 3 months!!! I am very active and I want to stay that way. Proactive is committed to keeping me that way!!!!
Response from the owner: Brad, we could not be happier to hear you say that. It's a joy for us to get to see you progress and your positive energy is infectious. We ARE committed to keeping you that way! Looking forward to hearing all your wild adventures for years to come.
Jessica and ProActive Physical Therapy has been so good with my IT band Syndrome. I really enjoyed the personal care, seeing what works best for me. Everyone is so encouraging and positive.
Response from the owner: Thank you Laura for the kind review. We love being able to be a part of your wellness program and look forward to watching all of your positive growth.

Great Experience! Everyone is very friendly and will make you feel at home. Jessica is Wonderful. When I first began therapy, I had a difficult time with neck, back and hip pain with headaches. Jessica was able to get me back to feeling like myself again. Thank you!!!
Response from the owner: Tiffany, thank you for such a special review. We all have truly enjoyed having you with us and getting to know you and watch you progress. We think Jessica is wonderful too, that means so very much to us. You feeling like yourself again, could not be better news. You will be forever a part of our ProActive Physical Therapy family.
Response from the owner: Thank you Jason for the 5 star review. We truly enjoyed getting to hang out with you today. Thank you for trusting us to be a part of your wellness.
This team at ProActive is phenomenal. They came to my company wellness fair and blew all our employees out of the water with what they do and their level of personalization for everyone’s personal needs and concerns. You need to explore them on so many levels. Overall wellness is so important and I love the programs they have around wellness for everyone. I have been so surprised by how engaging they are with me and their real interest in caring about what they can do for others. Adrienne and Brandon, you guys rock!!!!! See you tomorrow. Lol. Thanks for taking care of me.
Response from the owner: Megan, thank you for the unbelievable review. We truly do care about others and thankful that we get to be a part of your wellness . It is such a pleasure to have you in our clinic. You keep us laughing!
I met Dr. Brandon at a wellness fair at work. I immediately signed up for custom orthotics for terrible foot pain. The team was amazing! I got in for a full assessment within a week and they helped me understand the root of the pain. My orthotics arrived quickly and feel great! There's some soreness as my feet adjust to being aligned and in the correct position but it's so much less pain than just yesterday. I've already ordered a second pair for dress shoes! So excited to continue partnering with the ProActive team for my complete journey to wellness.
Response from the owner: Shari, you have been such a pleasure to have come in our clinic. You put the biggest smile on our faces seeing you try on your new custom orthotics and loving them right away. Thank you for trusting us to be a part of your wellness journey.
As a 45 year old, lifetime runner who focuses on longer distances, my hips, back, and achilles were starting to reject my efforts. Massage and stretching were not making a difference and I decided to try out Proactive to try something new. I was introduced to Jessica and she was able to quickly identify multiple weak points. Over several weeks, through soft tissue work, exercises, and stretching the running started to get easy again. I highly recommended Jessica and Proactive because they do a great job of explaining the exercises and the related anatomy as well as address the problem with multiple solutions.
Response from the owner: Alex, thank you for sharing your experience with us at ProActive! We agree with you that Jessica is great at what she does , she is a wonderful teacher and enjoys assisting people in reaching their goals. As a team, we have thoroughly enjoyed you being a part of our ProActive family and get excited with every stride forward you make. You make what we do , the best part of our practice!
Response from the owner: Thank you Chelsie for the 5 star review, we truly appreciate you and feel blessed to be a part of your recovery.
I can’t say enough about ProActive! They have made me feel so welcome, given me personalized care and provide a solution to feel young again. They are doing things for me that I could not do myself.
Response from the owner: Andrew, we are so happy to hear that. We truly enjoy getting to be a part of your feeling better and young again. That is such a huge compliment! You are simply a joy to have in the clinic.
Brandon, Jessica, Austin and Adrian are the BEST PT Team that I have EVER worked with! Their skills & knowledge are 2nd-to-none! Their attitude and energy are contagious and essential in the world of re-hab and physical fitness! They are always available and continuously motivate me to be better, stronger and happier EVERY DAY!I recommend you give them a try... and I believe you will find, like I did when I was introduced to Brandon and his Team approx 2-1/2 years ago, that ProActive Physical Therapy is the place for you!BEST OF LUCK TP THE BEST PT TEAM AROUND!Pete Gerstle

I love everything about proactive physical therapy! I recommend it to everyone 👌
Response from the owner: Thank you Edna! We love seeing you and being able to be a part of your recovery.
I started seeing the folks at proactive because of a shoulder injury. They were insanely helpful and informative and within a few sessions I could already tell a dramatic difference. Things only got better as the sessions went on.
Response from the owner: Alex, first thank you for the kind review. Knowing you are already able to tell a difference means the world to us. Our entire team is devoted to jus that, being part of your successful progression is a dream for us. Thank you for the opportunity to be a part of it.
Fantastic experience with ProActive! Staff were very helpful when I had a knee injury, and even spent time with me after my appointment to help me figure out a issue with health insurance. Would recommend to others for sure!
Response from the owner: Kinsey, that makes us so very happy to hear. Thank you for your kind words. You are the reason we do what we do. We will always assist any way that we can, whether it is during treatment or even after. Once you are a patient with us, you are forever a part of our ProActive Family.

Response from the owner: Thank you Elizabeth for not only your kind words, but for the constant laughs you bring with you every week. We appreciate you!

We look forward to his upcoming appointments and to seeing his progress! Thank you for taking time to leave us a great review!
I’m telling as many people as possible about the Proactive wellness center. Because after being told that I would have to live with and adjust to the pain effects of right shoulder bursitis I was diagnosed with in June, I had set my mind to just that. That was until an HONEST chiropractor told me that I could benefit from PT. Thus began my search and God led me to PROACTIVE PHYSICAL THERAPY AND WELLNESS, I checked out the website & I made an appointment on line. I received a call from Michelle informing me that my first visit was an assessment and plan and it was complimentary….well my complimentary visit lasted for 2.5 hours in which I was fully educated on my condition, cause and plan to return to normalcy without pain meds. I was so impressed. After the 2nd visit I actually felts so encouraged that I started spreading the word. Dr Brandon Evans “Brandon” and his Wonderful Staff are without exception- the BEST. My only regret is that I have to return to the Dominican Republic after only 8 visits, but I’m returning almost back to normal, and will be able to resume my Missionary duties with renewed vigor and pain Free. Thanks to Brandon, Jessica, Michelle and Loren. God bless you all as you continue to bless others. 🙏🏼✨
Response from the owner: Renee -Thank you so very much for your kind words. We are so happy that you walked through our door and that you are feeling so much better! It's been a pleasure to work with you and your husband and to get to know your story!
Response from the owner: Thank you Thomas for your 5 star review! It's been great getting to know you!
Response from the owner: Thanks so much for your 5 star review, Michelle!
