Chase Batty is a Physical Therapist and Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist. He completed his Doctorate in Physical Therapy at Belmont University after receiving his Master of Science in Exercise Physiology from Louisiana State University.
During his time at time Belmont, Chase’s Doctoral research focused on the hemodynamic effects of blood flow restriction therapy and how this tool may be used to return to sport or build strength faster in times of injury and reduced exercise capacity.
Chase remains active in his field of Physical Therapy and Strength and Conditioning by staying up to date in research and pursuing new and improved evidence based treatments in order to offer the best possible care to his patients.
Chase specializes in the assessment and treatment of running related injuries by utilizing video running analysis and modern wearable sensor technology to objectively measure and identify potential contributors to injury and areas for improved performance. His coaching strategy focuses on building mental confidence and individualized programming to meet the demands of your sport and your schedule.
Chase was born and raised in south Louisiana where his love of running and endurance sport began in spite of the sweltering heat. He races distances ranging from 5k to ultramarathon relay and enjoys coaching others to go and do likewise. Chase lives in Nashville with his wife and three children. When he is not at the clinic or pounding the pavement he enjoys being outside and watching live music.
"I have worked with Chase for over a year now and I can confidently say that I have made progress in areas that I did not think would be possible for me. As an adolescent stroke patient, I have struggled to have confidence in my run/walk (motor skills). With Chase’s determination, patience, and energetic personality, we have made incredible strides to achieve my goals. Chase has been an advocate for my physical health as well as my emotional. He truly invests in his patients’ lives and wants to help progress them in any way he can."
"Working with the team at Wolfe PT has been unlike any other physical therapy experience. This group of thoughtful, attentive, and dedicated professionals cares deeply about what they do - helping people - and has consistently gone above and beyond to personalize and prioritize my rehabilitation process.
Throughout every step of my journey, Chase has made me feel more like a partner than a patient and I could not be more grateful for the experience, creativity, and positive energy he has brought to my care. Without question, this is the new standard for physical therapy."
"I have had an extremely positive experience with Wolfe PT. I have been working with Chase for the past 2 years for a variety of injuries from running. Chase has been amazing with treatment and programs to get me back to running safely including training to allow me to run a half marathon.
Most importantly, Chase treats me in such a caring way and makes me feel as if I am his only client! It is different from other PT experiences because I feel like I am actually cared for as a person instead of just another client walking in. I am extremely thankful for Wolfe PT and Chase!"
"I want to thank Wolfe PT for the amazing care they’ve shown me the last couple of years. I’ve had several major injuries I’ve had to deal with as a high school football player. Going to PT visits is not something I would usually look forward to, but I always leave after my sessions here feeling so much better!
Chase and Chris are so kind, caring and knowledgeable. They always take the time to help me understand what is happening as far as my injury and why. Their total dedication to me and my recovery has enabled me to strengthen my body and return to playing sports very quickly. I am grateful for the excellent care I’ve received from Wolfe PT."
“I started working with Wolfe PT after a referral from Dr. Clark Holmes’ office when I needed rehab from a fall I suffered on the trails. Right from the first visit, Ryan was very thorough in his work-up and had me back on a return-to-run program in a short space of time. I then transitioned to working with Chase as we peeled back the onion on years of bad habits and technique that had crept in. Rehab gradually turned into strength training as the basis for injury prevention. What I like about this approach is that there are times where a minor setback calls for more rehab e.g. dry needling so we’re able to modify on the fly while locking in the gains already realized. My experience with Wolfe PT has been awesome and I would recommend the practice unreservedly."
"I came to Wolfe PT after developing pain in my right IT Band following the 2019 Indianapolis Marathon. From November 2019 to January 2020, I was unable to run a mile before pain set in so severely that I had to stop running. My first appointment was in mid-January and Dr. Batty provided me with excellent care. He was able to get me back to running quickly, while implementing strength exercises to recover and strengthen my injured leg. After 6 short weeks under Chase’s care, I was able to return to training. By April, I was able to complete my first 50-mile ultramarathon. Then, in June, I set a new PR in the 5k with a time of 17:59. None of this would have been possible without Wolfe PT."
