Titan Orthopedics Unique In-House Physical Therapy

Titan Orthopedics, with Orthopedic Surgeon Dr. John Lochemes, serving the Memphis metro area, sets itself apart by providing “in-house” physical therapy with Physical Therapist Chris M. Valas, PT, DPT. This is just one of the very special and unique offerings of Titan Orthopedics conveniently located just off Highway 240 on Ridgelake Boulevard.


Often, getting orthopedic medical and surgical care will go hand in hand with receiving physical therapy for a certain amount of time during recovery. But what is important to most patients, is that their orthopedic doctor, physician’s assistant, and physical therapist, communicate with each other and have a clear understanding of what medical procedure has been performed, and what physical therapy is needed, to get them back to better than before. 

You may ask, how does Titan Orthopedics provide unique physical therapy for shoulder and knee pain or treatment for workers compensation? Well, being unique is something that is very special to the Titan Orthopedics team. Dr. Lochemes believes that everyone should be treated with hospitality and respect for individuality. He says, “you might even say that the Titan Difference is where - medicine meets hospitality with your originality”. And to help deliver on this, Dr. Lochemes patients receive their physical therapy at the outpatient clinic just a few steps away and down the hall from the orthopedic medical clinic. 

This setup provides a whole lot of unique offerings that may not seem obvious from the outside, but to patients of Titan Orthopedics, make all the difference in the world. First of all, patients are assured that Physical Therapist, Chris Valas PT, DPT has received more than just a simplified “patient therapy prescription” for their care. 

Chris was a student athlete and raised in the Germantown and Memphis area and then went on to graduate from Rhodes College and earned his Doctorate in Physical Therapy from Belmont University in Nashville. After earning his Doctorate, Chris spent several years focusing on physical therapy for sports medicine patients, before moving back to the Memphis metro area.

Chris has been performing outpatient orthopedic rehabilitation for both professional athletes and weekend warriors as well as those suffering from pain and movement limitation, for the past 20 years.  

Today, in his physical therapy practice for example, if you have had a knee operation, Chris has been personally informed by board-certified orthopedic surgeon John Lochemes, MD as to your condition, status, and prescribed recovery treatment and therapy.

In today’s digital age, an in person conversation between doctor and physical therapist is rare! Most have never even personally met each other. This team work provides powerful advocacy for Titan patients because you are not just a name on a medical file, you are a real person. 

Convenience is another unique offering of Titan Orthopedics. With clinic and physical therapy care both happening under the same roof, patients save on time, money, and stress. Often, both visits can happen on the same day and at the same location, making life a lot easier for the patient. 

Convenience is also for the doctors too! The Titan medical professional team and staff can easily move between conferring with each other on how to provide the best patient medical care while performing their professional duties, easing stress on both staff and patients. We all know what it is like to walk into a medical clinic where you can just feel the stress peeling off of the walls, definitely not fun.

When you suffer from shoulder, hip, or knee pain, you want to be at a clinic where your medical care fosters an environment for healing and rehabilitation. You also want to know that you are receiving direct physician and physical therapist care with follow through and the kind of side by side progress that will help you recover quickly.
