Dr. Lisa Clark, PT, DPT
My interest in helping and healing the human body began while in high school as I spent a lot of time in an athletic training room and in physical therapy clinics. I became fascinated with how injuries occurred and how athletes returned to their sport. I was fortunate enough to have ATC’s and PT’s who encouraged me to pursue a career in helping not only athletes, but all individuals return to a pain free, unlimited, normal lifestyle.
As a 2009 graduate of Ursinus College, I received a degree in Exercise and Sports Science with a minor in Coaching. During those four undergraduate years, I played both soccer and lacrosse and received several accolades for academics and athletics. In April of my senior lacrosse season, I suffered a career-ending ACL injury. Since that time, my ultimate passion has been preventing and rehabilitating ACL injuries and returning those athletes back to their sport.
I pursued my Doctorate of Physical Therapy at Widener University where I also had the privilege to work as an assistant women’s lacrosse coach from 2009-2012. I graduated with my DPT degree in May 2012 and have been in the outpatient orthopedics environment ever since. My experience includes land and aquatic-based treatment of many diverse orthopedic, neuromuscular, autoimmune, and cardiovascular conditions in various age ranges. Some of my continuing education courses include McKenzie MDT classification of the spine and Functional Movement Screenings. I have a special interest in working with teenage athletes, especially those with ACL injuries. I am thrilled to be a part of Kinetic Physical Therapy’s Adolescent Sports Medicine Program to pursue my passion of preventing and rehabilitating common sports injuries to help athletes return to play.
In my spare time, my other passion is coaching lacrosse at the high school varsity and club levels. I also enjoy spending time with my family and friends, playing various sports, and being active.
