Driven To Help Others
AFTER GRADUATING FROM CHRISTIAN BROTHERS HIGH SCHOOL IN 1998...
Dr. Trevor Ling left the mid-south to pursue a collegiate soccer career and a degree in health sciences. While away, he discovered his true calling. After being injured himself and going through the recovery process, he knew that he wanted to work in the fields of athletic training and physical therapy. He graduated with a degree in Sports Medicine and Athletic Training from DePauw University in 2001, and went on to further his education at Shenandoah University. Upon completion of his Doctorate degree in Physical Therapy he married his bride, Amanda, and practiced medicine in the Virginia area. They then returned to his home town of Memphis in 2007. Dr. Ling’s goal in returning to Memphis was to further expand his education in manual therapy, orthopedics, and business. His last 8 years of experience in Shelby County have included work with high school and adult athletes, weekend warriors, triathletes, runners and everyone in between. Dr. Ling has maintained a strong following of repeat clientele over the years due to his expertise, professionalism, and strong desire to deeply understand each and every one of his patients.

Dr. Savannah Payton Rutledge
Originally from Georgia, Dr. Savannah Rutledge is a proud graduate of Mississippi State University where she earned her degree in Kinesiology with a focus in Clinical Exercise Physiology.
