Who is Knob Noster Physical Therapy
Knob Noster Physical Therapy is a standalone outpatient physical therapy clinic that is privately owned by the operating therapists and employees are treated like family. KNPT has grown rapidly since opening in 2017 and relocated into a new 3800 sq. ft facility in April 2020.
Why Small is Better
There are many advantages to working for a small business. Big corporations and hospitals are more concerned about therapist efficiency and profit than actual patient care. At KNPT patient care is our main concern. If something is needed for a patient or changes need to be made they will be made without having to pass through an administrative hierarchy.
Knob Noster is a Great Place to Live
Knob Noster is a small town that has the privilege of being home to Whiteman Air Force Base which houses the B-2 Bomber. This gives our clinic the rare opportunity to treat a high percentage of active duty Air Force and their family as well as retired members of the military. Being located less than an hour from Kansas City, Knob Noster offers a small town community with easy access to city amenities. Knob Noster High School was recently ranked 14th among nearly 600 high schools in Missouri, making this area a great place to start a family. Along with the military base and excellent school system, Knob Noster is home to Knob Noster State Park providing local fishing and hiking opportunities for the outdoor enthusiast.
