Dr. Courtney V. Harris, PT, CIDN, CKTT (Founder/Owner) was born and raised in Charleston, SC and has always had a desire to move back home and give back to the community that was so nurturing and loving to her. Bringing Recovery-N-Motion from North Carolina to her hometown is a dream come true. She is a graduate of Temple University where she received her Doctorate of Physical Therapy degree in 2008. She obtained her Bachelor of Science degree in Health Sciences from Florida A&M University in 2005.
After suffering a sports related injury that required surgery and physical therapy, Dr. Harris observed and experienced the importance a physical therapist plays in a person's life during their rehabilitation program, meeting their personal goals and being an advocate not only physically, but mentally as well. She knew at a young age her passion was to work in the medical industry to help others, but this personal experience solidified what she truly wanted to do in life.
Dr. Harris has various certifications including trained to utilize instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization (IASTM), cupping, dry needling (CIDN) and is a Certified Kinesio Taping Technician (CKTT). She is also currently enrolled in a Physical Therapy Fellowship Program to receive her FAAOMPT (Fellow of the American Academy of Orthopedic Manual Physical Therapists). This credentialing will vastly help her clients and will allow her to enhance the union between sports, orthopedics and manual therapy.
As a former competitive CrossFit athlete for nearly 10 years, coaching CrossFit for over 5 years and her overall love for fitness, health and wellness, Dr. Harris' views have broadened regarding the connection between fitness and rehabilitation. She understands and implements the importance of proper technique/form as well as the benefits of a good rehabilitation program to allow pain free movement and a good maintenance program for injury prevention. Dr. Harris created Recovery-N-Motion believing that utilizing her education and knowledge, she is able to comprehensively help athletes, youth and active adults achieve optimal performance, improve their quality of life and maintain an active lifestyle through quality and high valued care.
Dr. Harris is on the Board of Directors for the Non-Profit organization, Cleans for a Cure, that is dedicated to the fight against Type 1 Diabetes. She is also a proud member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc.
