Bio

A native of Knoxville, TN, Allison graduated in 2016 with a Bachelor of Science in Education (Kinesiology) from the University of Tennessee. She continued to pursue a career in physical therapy, graduating with a Doctorate of Physical Therapy  from the University of Tennessee Health Science Center in Memphis, TN, in 2019. Throughout her schooling, Allison gained experience in a variety of settings and patient populations including inpatient, outpatient, sports rehab, occupational health, and acute care.

Since graduation, Allison’s clinical focus has been outpatient orthopedics. Allison began her physical therapy career in Birmingham, AL, in an outpatient orthopedic setting where she worked with all ages in a variety of clinical areas including post-operative rehabilitation, spinal injuries, balance/gait impairments, sport-related injuries, occupational health, and stroke management. Allison’s clinical areas of interest include post-surgical treatment, manual therapy of the spine and extremities, assessment and injury management of runners or the fitness athlete, gait/balance impairments, and non-operative or conservative treatment of orthopedic conditions, specifically of the shoulder, hip, knee, and ankle.

Allison takes on an evidence-based, patient-centered approach to treatment with a strong emphasis on therapeutic exercise, postural/core stability, functional manual therapy and movement training, and patient education. She has taken numerous hours of continuing education with courses including dry needling, treatment of pelvic floor dysfunction, IASTM, assessment/management of runners, and manual therapy.

In her personal time, Allison enjoys spending time with her fiancé, Bret, and their dog, Hank. She also enjoys rooting for the Vols at Tennessee Football games, spending time with friends and family, running, kickboxing, and traveling.
