Lisa, Physical Therapist

Lisa graduated from the University of Illinois at Chicago in 1995 with a degree in Physical Therapy.  Lisa’s work as a physical therapist has spanned over 20 years and has included a variety of work environments ranging from inpatient hospital settings, home health settings, orthopedic outpatient clinlisa-sevcik-photo-2ics, work conditioning and hardening clinics, and industrial settings. 

In these last ten years, Lisa’s primary focus has been the treatment of individuals in both industrial settings and orthopedic outpatient settings.  Within the industrial setting, she worked as an injury prevention specialist to help prevent injuries in the workplace, a physical therapist for injured workers, and as a Senior Ergonomist.  Within the outpatient setting, she treated and developed detailed exercise programs for patients ranging from their teens up into their nineties.   

Her work and treatments with seniors within outpatient physical therapy clinics included rehabilitation following surgeries, management strategies for chronic orthopedic issues such as arthritis, education and exercise programs to minimize the risk for falls, instruction and recommendations for assistive devices such as canes and walkers, and general exercise programs to maintain maximum independence and health within the community.

Lisa sincerely believes and knows that all people, no matter what their circumstance or age, can benefit physically and mentally and spiritually from a fitness and/or wellness program if they are patient and are a committed part of the process! 

Lisa has been an avid runner and exerciser for the last 25 years.  She claims that she will continue this forever!  She draws inspiration from her parents who are both in their seventies and continue to both strength train and jog 3-5 miles at least 3-4 times per week.

Previous to her career as a PT, she worked as an Industrial Engineer for Caterpillar, Inc. for several years after receiving a Bachelor of Science degree in Industrial Engineering from Marquette University in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

Lisa is truly excited to have the opportunity to meet with you, listen to what you desire and wish to achieve from our services, and then work together with you to achieve these goals over a period of time.
