Dr. Brian Murphy is the owner of Pinnacle Physical Therapy in Little Rock. He has been in rehabilitation and sports medicine since 2007.

Brian attended the University of Central Florida and received his undergraduate degree in Athletic Training. After graduating, he worked at the Recreation and Wellness Center on Campus providing sports medicine coverage and care to the student athletes and club sports teams. He then worked as the assistant athletic trainer for Winter Park High School in Central Florida while also working at various Cora Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation clinics.

In 2009 Brian moved to Jacksonville to attend the University of North Florida for graduate school.  In 2012 he received his Doctorate of Physical Therapy and moved back to Central Florida. His first job out of school was with Florida Hospital Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation at the RDV Sportsplex. While at Florida Hospital, Brian completed an Orthopaedic Residency Program which was a year long intensive which prepared him to be a clinical leader who contributes to the profession through clinical excellence, research, and teaching. At the end of the residency program Brian passed his Orthopaedic Clinical Specialist exam in 2015. As of this writing there are only 26 OCS physical therapists in the whole state of Arkansas. 


After getting married in November 2015, Brian and his wife took off for adventure. He worked as a Traveling Physical Therapist in Arkansas and Alaska. All of these experiences made him realize that he needed to open his own clinic so that he could use his PHILOSPHY to treat patients.

Brian and his wife Chelsea opened Pinnacle Physical Therapy in August 2017 and are working everyday to bring Arkansas the highest level of care possible. Their kids, son Casen and daughter Adalyn, really enjoy living in The Natural State. They love the outdoors and Pinnacle Mountain State Park holds a special place in their hearts.

Brian became a physical therapist because of his passion for helping people overcome their physical limitations so they could have their own adventures.  This website has a wealth of information and Brian is always available to use his expertise to help you reach your Pinnacle!  To find out how to reach out to him and receive your free consultation, click here.
