She enjoys the variety of seeing injuries literally from head to toe.
She has strong expertise and heart for working with youth athletes to prevent and treat overuse injuries. Youth are more prone to different injuries because their bones are just forming, and they have open growth plates. Injuries can occur such as stress fractures, avulsion fractures, and apophysitis due to overloading a young athletes’ tissues. Lisa has expertise and a strong understanding of how the body grows and develops and the differences in injuries and treatment approaches from young to aged athletes. She has experience helping individuals get back to activities after they sustain a concussion. She has also worked in an outpatient clinic for a Level 1 Trauma Hospital.
