Physical therapy helps people dealing with complex conditions

She also helps patients recover from orthopedic surgery, including total joint replacements. Lisa takes the time to promote injury prevention and wellness to all the people under her care.

Bone & Joint’s collaborative care is great for patients

“I enjoy being in a shared clinic location with the medical providers, which I feel improves communication, rehab progression, and speed of recovery for our clients, Lisa said. “Bone & Joint has a great staff and is a great place to work.”

She earned her Doctor of Physical Therapy degree from Des Moines University in Des Moines, Iowa. She received her Master of Physical Therapy degree from the University of Iowa in Iowa City, Iowa, and her Bachelor of Science from Iowa State University in Ames, Iowa.
