October is National Physical Therapy Month
October is National Physical Therapy Month! Academy Foot and Ankle Specialists would like to honor our Physical Therapy Team. Please allow me to introduce Lisa (our Physical Therapist) and her lovely assistant, Michael!
Don’t let their youthful glow fool you; this team comes with a ton of experience. Lisa has been a Physical Therapist for over 28 years and Michael has over 10 years under his belt.
Lisa has worked in a variety of Physical Therapy settings, including Acute Care Hospitals, Rehabilitation Hospitals, and Skilled Nursing Facilities. She also has experience in Home Health Care and more specialized training treating orthopedic and sports medicine patients. In her free time, she attends Bible Study Fellowship and enjoys walks with her husband and attending Birdville High football games.
A little known treasure about Lisa: When she was just out of 5th grade she already had her own advice column in the Fort Worth Star Telegram! So if she’s treating your feet, she can also give you free advice!!
“I love helping people reduce or resolve their pain and get back to doing the things they love and teaching them how to manage their foot problems.” –Lisa
Thanks, Lisa! Academy Foot and Ankle Specialists are lucky to have you on our team!
Michael as been in the PT biz for over 10 years! He is a veteran of the US Navy Reserves. (Thank you for your service, Mike!). He has experience in Fitness Centers, Rehabilitation Hospitals, and Outpatient Therapy Clinics.
In his spare time he enjoys spending quality time with his family, camping, fishing, and taking road trips. Michael also plays softball and football with community and church leagues. Michael’s true love, however, is his son. He takes great pride and joy in watching him grow. They share a love for horses and spend a lot of their time together enjoying that pastime.
“My favorite part of my job is helping people return to their busy, active lifestyles and assisting youth and athletes [getting back] to the sports they love.” –Michael
Thanks Michael! The doctors at Academy Foot and Ankle appreciate all you do!
If you work with or know a Physical Therapist or Physical Therapy Assistant, take the time to thank them in honor of National Physical Therapy Month.
