Luke Acklie, PT, OCS, SCS, CSCS

Located in Peoria, IL Knoxville Avenue | Phone: 309.243.1989 | Fax: 309.243.8138


Luke has been a physical therapist in the Peoria area for 14 years, receiving a Bachelor’s Degree in Physical Therapy from Bradley University in Peoria, IL in 1999.  He became certified as a Strength and Conditioning Specialist through the NSCA in 2000 and became a USAW Sports Performance Coach in 2007.  In 2006, he met the requirements to be certified as an Orthopaedic Clinical Specialist through the APTA.  In 2012 he met the requirements to be certified as a Sports Clinical Specialist through the APTA.  He specializes in treating individuals with orthopaedic and sports-related injuries with an emphasis on sport-specific training. Luke’s post-graduate certifications include the ASTYM technique.  He is an active member in the Illinois Physical Therapy Association (IPTA) and the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA.)  He is an avid sports fan and enjoys fishing, traveling to Walt Disney World, and spending time with his wife, Liz, and two children.

What made you decide on this career?
"Having a mother that is a registered nurse, I always knew that I was interested in the health fields, but never knew exactly where I fit.  That all changed when I was a junior in high school, fractured my hand in a basketball game, and required physical therapy afterwards.  Physical therapy meshed my love for sports with my interest in medicine and was the perfect choice for me."

What is the thing you love most about your job?
"I believe that in life we are all given gifts and that mine is to share what I know with my patients to help them recover from their injuries.  The opportunity to help our patients through these difficult times in their lives and get them better is tremendously internally rewarding and a true blessing.  The people that walk through our door may start out as patients, but they leave as friends.  I am fortunate that I can say that I truly love what I do!"
