Personal Experience & Biography

Mark Rutledge has been a physical therapist in the Charleston area for over 30 years. His passion and focus has always been on orthopedic/musculoskeletal injuries and post-surgical rehabilitation. When asked what area of the body he prefers to rehab, his answer is always “anything musculoskeletal from head to toe” as he has developed his skills and furthered his education over the years. His expertise is critical to students, as he is an adjunct professor and guest lecturer at the Medical University of South Carolina. He is a past delegate for the South Carolina Physical Therapy Association.

Mark is an All American swimmer from the University of South Carolina and was awarded a Physical Therapist position at the swimming venue for the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta. His love for swimming led him to create an open water swim in the Charleston Harbor  (The Lowcountry Splash), using his not-for-profit foundation to raise money for a learn-to-swim program that provides free swim lessons to kindergarten and first graders in the Charleston County School District. This year (2021) will be the 20th anniversary of the Lowcountry Splash. Mark is married to Mirjam, and they have 6 children together, leading him to be family-oriented. Between his organization and PT clinics, his work feels more like play. He is extremely involved with his patients, and hopes to continue treating anyone that walks through the front door.
