Health Check Physical Therapy wishes to introduce you to a few very special members of our team. Like all team members, these individuals possess critical skills that play an important role in your treatment. Frequently considered of near equal importance is the fact that all team members do everything possible to maintain a positive, friendly and cheerful environment. In fact, the nature of that environment has proven itself quite infectious. Consequently, patient testimonials frequently include comments on the nature of the environment at Health Check Physical Therapy. After all, a positive, friendly and cheerful environment affects patients and team members alike.
Now, let’s meet Marie, Jenn and Becky, three members of our team.
Marie, a member of Our Team
Marie is a graduate of the University of Delaware, where she received her Physical Therapy (PT) degree in 1990. Since then, she has worked in the areas of acute care, pediatrics, and outpatient orthopedics. Although Marie enjoyed the unique experience that each of these settings offered, her primary interest and experience is in the evaluation and treatment of joint and soft tissue dysfunction. She has experience in the rehabilitation of patients with total joint replacements, low back and neck pain, and various other orthopedic injuries involving the shoulder, knee, and ankle. She continues to refine her skills through continued course work in the mobilization of the extremities and spine as well as various other orthopedic and manual therapy courses. Marie is a member of the American Physical Therapy Association. In her free time, Marie enjoys hiking and kayaking with her family.
