InterestsLisa 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.
