Dr. John-Mark Chesney

Founder and Owner


Whether he’s helping his patients with stiff and aching joints and tight, tense, and tender muscles or helping people discover the many health resources available around Knoxville through his podcast, Stay Healthy Knoxville, Dr. John-Mark Chesney is passionate about helping people live healthy, active lives.

John-Mark graduated from Clemson University with a bachelor’s degree in Pre- Rehabilitation Sciences and his doctorate in Physical Therapy from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. Because he is committed to offering the best care he possibly can, John-Mark elected to continue his education by completing an optional residency program through Evidence in Motion, specializing in Manual Therapy and Orthopedics. He is a board-certified specialist in Orthopedics and certified in Dry Needling in Tennessee.

John-Mark treasures his time with his family, including his lovely wife, Faith, and his three young children. He has enjoyed getting involved at Fellowship Evangelical Free Church’s Northshore campus. His favorite color is orange (Go Vols! Go Tigers!) and he enjoys road and mountain biking, swinging with his kids in the hammock, and his next adventure, whatever it may bee.
