Born and raised in East Tennessee, Dr. Zac Lynch has always been passionate about bringing life, energy, and fitness to our region. After a childhood spent playing many activities and sports, he began his studies at the University of Tennessee where he studied movement and exercise. While studying Kinesiology at UTK, he picked up an interest in weight lifting and body building. After graduating with his Bachelors degree, he then was admitted into East Tennessee State University’s Physical Therapy Program. It was during this time that he started to develop a new interest in CrossFit, and he began training in this type of fitness. Upon graduating with his Doctorate of Physical Therapy, he moved back to Morristown, Tennessee to begin working at a traditional physical therapy setting for the next two years. After moving to Morristown, he also immediately joined 10 Experience/Five Rivers CrossFit and started training daily. After a year of contemplation about his future career path, Zac took a leap of faith and started his own business in June of 2018, Absolute Treatment. This practice was launched with a single goal in mind…..’To bring HEALTH back to Healthcare.’ In his non-traditional setting, he starting treating people on a 1 to 1 basis… no technicians, no assistants, just high quality treatment with a Doctor of Physical Therapy. He also started coaching at this same time at 10 Experience/Five Rivers Crossfit to cater his side interest. Since 2018, Dr. Zac Lynch has been able to expand his services and treat 350 people including olympic athletes, collegiate athletes, triathletes, CrossFit games athletes, career and occupational athletes, and weekend warriors. He looks forward to expanding his practice and assisting individuals in reaching their personal goals.

Dr. Zac Lynch resides in Morristown, Tennessee with his wife and son. Outside of work and Crossfit, Zac enjoys spending time with his family. He and his family are members of First Baptist Church; Dr. Zac Lynch is grateful for the Lord’s blessings of family, work, and fitness! 

 

Dr. Holden North, PT, DPT

Born in Kentucky, raised in Virginia, and formally educated in kinesiology/rehabilitation sciences and physical therapy in Tennessee, Dr. Holden North knows and truly appreciates the interconnection that lives in our Tri-State Appalachia Region.  Though playing many sports, he considers golf to be the sport where he truly found out who he was and developed many invaluable skills through his time spent with The First Tee of Pine Mountain.  “It gave me patience, accountability, and passion for being the best version of myself.”  He was brought up in a small Christian school in his local area–during this time accepting Christ as his personal savior.  Following high school, he studied at Lincoln Memorial University for 4 years gaining his Bachelor’s degree in rehabilitation sciences.  He then completed his Doctorate of Physical Therapy at South College in Knoxville, TN.  He spent the first 1.5 years at a local KY/TN clinic treating and specializing in sports/orthopedics, but also having a passion for treating headaches and TMJ pain.  Being driven to provide his patients with the best care possible, he is completing post-doctoral specializations in orthopedics and will soon sit for his ABPTS examination to become a Board-Certified Orthopedic Clinical Specialist (OCS).  He is now also adjunct faculty at South College DPT, where he is able to teach students and engage with PTs from across the country.

 

Dr. Holden North resides in Ewing, Va with his wife Caitlin and goldendoodle Dixie.  They spend much of their time hiking, camping, paddle boarding, or simply exploring the farm together.  His new found passion is training for and competing in SPARTAN races, and he’s always excited to meet and assist those who share this same passion. He joined Absolute Treatment to further carry the torch towards the company’s mission to put the Health back in Healthcare.  “I’m so blessed to be a part of a profession and mission that is changing the script on what preventative care is.  Let me help to not only get you better…but keep you better for years to come.  PT isn’t only for when things hurt, it’s a lifelong resource to being a better version of yourself every day–physically and emotionally.”
