Dr. Kari Chappell


I help busy professionals overcome injuries, aches, and pains quickly so they can take full advantage of their time and activities away from the office without injections, surgery, or frequent trips to a physician.

As a middle child and kid growing up with a lot of competitive cousins and family members, I have always pushed myself to be the best at whatever I do. Growing up, I loved playing any and all sports and some of my favorite childhood memories are Florida trips with my family where I can play catch with my dad and make diving catches into the ocean. This natural draw to athletics and competition eventually led me to physical therapy. As a high school soccer player I tore my quadricep and felt the devastation that happens when injury holds you back from doing your favorite things. Soccer for me was my passion, my community and my athletic output. It was much more than just a sport. I was ready to do whatever I could to get back to soccer and I later discovered that I wanted to help other people do that as my career.

I find that for most people I work with, their sport or exercise of choice is much more than just a way to get fit. It is their community, their mental release, and the thing that makes them feel more confident and more of themselves. I feel the same way. Injury can be so devastating, not only because it sets you back from your fitness goals or routine, but because it can remove you from your community and affect? your mental state. That is the reason why I love what I do. I understand that feeling of devastation and I get to be an active participant in helping people get back to their sport and their community and living the life they love. 
Because of the way I grew up and my natural drive to achieve and to do my best, I am always hungry to learn more. At T-Zero Physio, I get so many opportunities to learn and grow and that’s what I love about working here. I worked in a typical PT practice for over 2 years and at the end of the day I found myself disappointed. I didn’t feel the passion about PT that I had originally felt and I felt trapped by being told how to work and how many people I had to see in a day. I felt like I wasn’t learning and growing anymore and that is what really started to affect me and eventually drove me to look elsewhere. This ended up being the best thing in the world for me because it led me to T-Zero and an opportunity to work with people like you. Here I feel challenged daily and stretched and pushed because of the clients I get to work with. I am pushed to be a better PT and person daily and to meet my clients needs in such a bigger way than I ever have before.

I am so grateful to be here and so grateful to get to work with awesome and talented and impressive clients. I love getting to hear people’s stories and learning from people along the way. I get to find creative ways to keep people doing the things they love with decreasing any limitations they might be having. You guys are the reason I love coming to work everyday and I look forward to keep doing it!

"I recently reached out to T-Zero for help with my achilles heel. I had strained it backpacking, injured it more by running on it too soon, and was approaching a 5 day/40 mile trek in Peru that I was starting to panic about. Kari was amazing to work with! She obviously helped a ton during my PT visits, but she also sent me home with exercises, stretches, and tips for the present and the future. And she eased my mind, as I was worried I couldn’t do anything on it, and that just wasn’t true. I was almost back to normal by the time my Peru trek arrived! I kept her tips and advice in mind during the hike, and everything felt fine! I was even the first of a group of seventeen to the top of a 15k foot mountain pass! Thanks to Kari and the T-Zero team for getting me back to normal! "

"I highly recommended T-Zero Physio. The team that work and operate it are very professional and extremely knowledgeable. I personally use Kari there and would highly recommend her too. So far Kari has proven herself to be an excellent physio and has completely transformed my life again. Previously before finding T-Zero I had to give up a lot of my sporting activities as they were causing too much discomfort. Kari has resolved a lot of my discomfort to the point I have started to return to various sports now including running. Thank you Kari and keep up the great work!!! "
