Ellis & Badenhausen PT/Rudy J Ellis Sports Medicine Center

The Dr. Rudy J. Ellis Sports Medicine Center was established in 1981 to provide accelerated rehab for acute and chronic musculoskeletal injuries to patients in the Louisville area. Our physical therapists (PT) and physical therapy assistants (PTA) are trained in the treatment of a wide variety of orthopaedic procedures, including ligament reconstructions, cartilage resurfacing/implantation, labral repairs of the hip and shoulder, fractures, sports injuries, arthritis, sprains/strains, as well as other orthopaedic injuries. They use a wide range of modalities and therapeutic techniques to expedite your recovery after an injury, surgery or other painful condition. Our staff is trained in kinesiology taping, Dry Needling (DN)Blood Flow Restriction training (BFR) , cold laser therapy, ultrasound, electrical stimulation, Graston/IASTM (instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization), Primal Reflex Release Techniques (PRRT), Functional Movement Screen (FMS), and mechanical traction for the neck and back. We also provide clinical outreach into many high schools within the Jefferson County area. We employ certified athletic trainers who spend time helping injured athletes in Louisville involved in a number of sports throughout the year.

We have multiple locations currently serving the Kentuckiana area. After your initial evaluation, we can set you up on a free app to help you complete your home exercise program by watching videos on your smart phone, tablet or computer. We utilize My Rehab Pro home exercise videos and handouts to get our patients better outcomes with PT. Check out

Appointments can be made by calling us directly, by emailing or via a faxed PT order/prescription. The state of Kentucky allows direct access to a PT without a doctor’s order/prescription, and most private insurances will cover PT treatment.
