Meet Lisa Konitzer, the newest addition to our Focus Team! With a wealth of experience and a passion for patient-centered care, Dr. Lisa Konitzer brings a unique blend of expertise and warmth to our practice.

 

Background and Education

Lisa’s journey in physical therapy began with a Master’s degree from the University of Indianapolis, followed by a Doctorate in Physical Therapy from Baylor University. Her dedication to advancing her skills led her to complete a Fellowship in Orthopedic Manual Physical Therapy from Army-Baylor University, solidifying her as a Board-Certified Orthopedic Specialist and a Fellow in the American Academy of Orthopedic Manual Physical Therapists.

For over two decades, Lisa served in the United States Army, where she honed her craft in a variety of settings, from outpatient orthopedics to operational clinics and inpatient hospital care. Her commitment to her patients transcended boundaries, as she worked tirelessly both stateside and deployed, adapting to resource-heavy and resource-constrained environments alike.

Highlights and Specialties

During her tenure in the Army, Lisa not only provided exceptional care but also contributed significantly to advancing the field of physical therapy. She participated in research studies on conditions like low back pain, knee osteoarthritis, and achilles tendinopathy, leaving a lasting impact on the treatment landscape. Moreover, she championed initiatives for direct access within the Defense Health Agency and played a pivotal role in updating Clinical Practice Guidelines for low back pain for The Department of Defense and the Veterans Affairs.

What sets Lisa apart is her genuine interest in her patients’ well-being. She believes in empowering individuals to take control of their health journey and achieve autonomy in managing their conditions. Her approach is not just about treating symptoms but about fostering long-term wellness and self-care.

Interests

Outside the clinic, Lisa is a true adventurer at heart. Whether she’s hiking through scenic trails, hitting the slopes for a skiing adventure, or simply curling up with a good book, she embraces life’s experiences with enthusiasm. Family is at the center of her world, and she cherishes moments spent with her husband, two daughters, and beloved dog.

With Lisa on board, you can trust that you’ll receive personalized care that prioritizes your needs and goals. Join us in welcoming her to our team!
