Dr. Dustin Howard - Executive PT

Dr. Dustin Howard


Hi! My name is Dr. Dustin Howard and I’m honored you’re here.

If you’re anything like my private clients, I know your drive for success expands to every part of your life…and especially your physical health. Success without health, in my opinion, is one of the biggest areas of regret for many high performing people. Just ask the anyone avoiding the activities they once loved, the trips they wanted to go on, having difficulty rolling out of bed.

I fundamentally believe that your health care should be just that, health care…not sick care. The challenge is, however, the current healthcare model is broken.

Insurance premiums and chronic issues with pain and disease are skyrocketing all while patient and therapist satisfaction are at an all-time low. Insurance companies, not clients and their therapists, are making the rules.

I’ve experienced this firsthand as a therapist working in the traditional setting for multiple different companies. In fact I almost walked away from therapy completely because I felt forced to deliver generic, efficient but impersonal care. Like you, I knew there was in fact a better solution.

That is why I created Executive PT. By limiting our clientele to so few per therapist, I’ve been able to fulfill my dream of impacting the lives of some of the most successful men and women in the country who have become a part of the Executive PT family. We would be honored to do the same for you.

My best,
Dr. Dustin Howard PT, DPT

Hey there I am Kelly Frawley!

Welcome to Executive PT! I am so excited that you are here. What would your life be like if you were at your peak in your health, business and your relationships?

If you are anything like my clients at Executive PT, these aspects must be in alignment… and if any one of these are broken, the whole system can’t function as designed.

I lost my mom when I was 14 years old from a sudden heart attack. The emotional pain is what drove me to my passion, a career where I am able to shield high performing professionals and their families from experiencing a similar consequence. All of this is not possible without including ALL three areas (health, business/career and relationships).

That is why we develop such strong relationships with our clients at Executive PT…and also why our typical client stays with us a very long time. One of my favorite clients is a gentleman in his 60’s. He is a business owner with a passion for his family, business and his love for adventure with others.

After recovering from a triple bypass and rehabilitating with us, he was able to go sailing for 3 weeks off the grid with some new friends. This is just one example of many of our amazing clients who’s lives are forever changed.

If you’re struggling specifically in your health, we are here for you…and we will walk with you through whatever you’re dealing with.

Hey, I’m Dr. Rachel Crawford.

If you’re reading this, it’s likely you’ve lost your strength or mobility and want to get it back. The problem is, what you’ve been doing to get your strength or mobility back is not working. If this persists long enough, it can leave you feeling stuck, weak, and vulnerable to a lesser life. The truth is, your body and your best life matter!

My biggest priority at Executive PT is to find out about YOU--your story and what it is you want out of this life. Then, create a workout and rehabilitation experience that empowers and works for you. If you’re looking to get your body and the best of your life back, then you are EXACTLY who I want to work with.

Last, here’s a little bit about me. In 2022, I became a Board Certified Sports Specialist after completing my residency with Vanderbilt! My love of sports has led to several opportunities including working with professional athletes and serving as the team PT for Vandy athletics. I have a dog named Scout and a husband named Blake, and we live happily in Nashville, TN!

If you’re still reading, we’re probably meant to work together.

Let's Meet!

Reach out to us using the form below. Tell us a little bit about your current situation (experiencing pain, out of shape, looking for weight training, etc…) and where you would like to be (pain free, in shape, strong, etc…). We are happy to help!

    So thankful for Dustin and now also Kelly for life changing results. I had damage to both my knees and shoulders from sports and then decades of lack of true care versus meds and threats of surgeries. Executive PT was the only place who actually helped and has my knees and shoulders without daily pain. We have since that time been doing mostly strengthening and they cater to my issues as we push to get into better condition and form of working out for the future. Thanks Dustin and Kelly...you are truly life changers!

    My daughter had a cheer injury to her knee and after icing and non weight bearing, it never seemed to heal. We saw an orthopedic Dr and he didn't think surgery would really do any good, so we decided to try PT. Regular PT just didn't really offer her any relief either and so we just put a brace on it and she cheered in pain for 2 years with a brace. Finally our chiropractor recommended Dr Dustin and so trusting his opinion as an athlete himself, we went for a consultation. We have been very pleased with her results and that she was able come out of the brace and cheer pain free. She also had some bad form corrected which has helped her to prevent further injury! I cannot say enough wonderful things about Dr. Dustin Howard and appreciate all he did to help my daughter!

    I had knee pain for about a year when I found Executive PT. I had undergone many doctor visits, PT, and a surgery ending with my doctors only offering pain management as a solution. When I initially called Dr. Dustin, he spent 40 minutes on the phone with me just to ask clarifying questions to understand my issue. It felt like my problem was his problem, and he was determined to find a solution for my knee. After the first dry needling session I felt relief from my pain and was able to start building back strength to my knee. I loved the culture of this place! He focuses on educating his patients and encouraging them live strong and purposeful lives. I will continue to recommended EPT to my friends and family!

    After going to many different PT places for knee and back pain, I am so grateful to have found Executive PT with Dustin and Kelly! They take the time to listen to you and create a custom plan for you and what you are looking to accomplish. I never thought I would find a combination of PT and Training, but that is what you get with Executive PT! The results have been incredible! This is by far the BEST experience with PT and Training.
