Treating Clinics: Broomfield
Lisa is originally from just outside Chicago and moved to Colorado in 2013. She graduated Indiana University in 2010 with a Bachelor's of Science degree in Exercise Science and a minor in Psychology. Lisa continued her education by graduating from Northwestern University's Doctorate of Physical Therapy program in 2013. She has worked in the outpatient orthopedic field since then and truly loves being a physical therapist. Lisa enjoys all Colorado has to offer including skiing, hiking, biking, and soccer. When not taking advantage of the great outdoors, she loves spending time with her husband and two sons. She considers herself an investigative therapist because she focuses on why your injury happened in the first place to make sure it doesn’t happen again. She has treated the gamut of orthopedic cases including ACL rehabilitation to complex chronic low back pain from the elite athlete to the daily walker. She is certified in Level I and Level II Dry Needling and has a subspecialty of running analysis. Lisa loves puzzles and will thoroughly evaluate you from head to toe to ensure your full recovery!
Lisa got into PT because she tore her ACL 3 times. She absolutely loves treating post-ACL and really any lower extremity injury in all athletes. She particularly has become keen on treating runners and ball sports athletes like soccer, basketball and volleyball. She loves to do running and bike analysis and uses a slow-motion technology app to really isolate where you are at risk for injury. She also has a history playing tennis in high school so shoulder injuries related to racket sports have been very fun for her.
Lisa loves to do puzzles, which is something that drew her into the physical therapy world. She is very determined to figure out what is causing her patients pain or discomfort and what will work best to relieve it. She focuses on hands-on skills during her treatment sessions and utilizes a test-re-test approach to ensure she is having a positive effect on your injury. She is dedicated to helping you return to your sport or activity as quickly and safely as possible creating fun and individualized exercise programs.
