Ken Johnson grew up in Lima, Ohio. He went to college at Indiana University where he received his Bachelor’s in Physical Therapy in 1997. Ken received a Graduate Certificate in Health Sciences Patient Centered Outcomes in 2006 from Indiana University and numerous other certifications to ensure he is up to date with the most recent research and treatment techniques for treating the wide range of conditions his patients experience.

Ken has practiced in outpatient orthopedic clinics his entire career and enjoys the challenge this setting brings every day. He has experience in treating most conditions that present themselves in an outpatient orthopedic setting including neck pain, shoulder pain, back pain, hip and knee pain, lower extremity and upper extremity overuse syndromes, and foot dysfunction as well as balance and vestibular disorders. He has completed additional training for Graston soft tissue mobilization, dry needling, FMS/SFMA evaluation, and Blankenship WorkEval Functional Evaluation. He has a special interest in cervical and shoulder dysfunction, thoracic outlet syndrome, return to work training, balance training, strengthening, and fall prevention techniques for older adults, and working with athletes to help them return to their sport of choice.

Ken has lived on the south side of Indianapolis since 1997 with his wife. He has four children in high school and college and a pet to help keep him busy. When not at work, he enjoys cycling, watching sporting events, and spending time relaxing with friends and family.




I grew up in Westfield, IN, but now residing in Broad Ripple, IN. I graduated from the University of Indianapolis and graduated with my Bachelor’s Degree is Psychology and my Associate’s from Physical Therapy Assistant Program in 2018. I have been a licensed therapist ever since and initially started out in the Skilled Nursing setting and was in that setting for three years. I have brief Home Health experience as well covering small parts of Zionsville, Southport/Greenwood, and briefly South Bend areas. However, the outpatient setting has always been my passion in the physical therapy world, so I am very happy to now be part of the Indiana Physical Therapy team!

I became a therapist because I enjoy helping and caring for others in order to restore their functional mobility to lead a healthier and happier life within their community. I had a very positive observation experience while I was in high school that lead me on the path to becoming a licensed PTA. This is a career that allows me to continue to grow not only as a therapist, but as a person as well! 




I became a therapist after experiencing my own injury, from playing high school basketball, and spending some time in physical therapy I really loved the rehabilitation process and wanted to pursue it as my career.

The best part of my job is learning about how awesome the human body is and helping people become the best they can be.

Fun fact about me: I have a German shorthaired pointer puppy named Monty.
