Her love for orthopaedic and sports rehabilitation began while working as a therapist in Newport News, Virginia in 1996.
After another military transfer to Texas, Amy joined HealthSouth and was part of the official PT provider clinic for the San Antonio Spurs. Since then, she has worked with countless athletes of all ages – both amateur and professional – including the shoulder rehab for a particular MLB pitcher. Amy also found herself in the unique role of unofficial therapy advisor to the nation’s first operational F-22 fighter squadron before moving back to Colorado in 2004.
Having personally experienced a successful therapy outcome following reattachment of a traumatic finger amputation and more therapy success following her son’s successful knee reconstruction with bone and cartilage grafting, Amy truly understands the personal and professional benefits of physical therapy intervention. She actively practices manual therapy and has attended numerous educational courses including Strain-Counterstrain and Myofascial Release- among many other orthoepaedic continuing education classes over the years.
