Lisa is a true professional, without being stiff or formal. She has a sunny personality, a great sense of humor and, above all, genuine compassion for your pain, as well as the optimism that your problem--from head to toe--can be "fixed." The exercise handouts she has developed are a huge help for doing the exercises by yourself. During PT sessions, Lisa gives praise and encouragement as you go through the exercises. She also gently corrects your positioning if you are a little off-kilter so that you maximize the benefits of the physical therapy. Lisa never rushes a session or pushes you harder than you can manage. If you do the exercises regularly by yourself, you will find that session by session you become stronger and more and more pain-free.
I highly recommend Lisa to anyone who has never had physical therapy--as well as to those who have, but found it boring and too difficult to continue. This will not be your experience with Lisa!"

"I have known Lisa Schroeder, PT for over 20 years. She is a professional and skilled physical therapist who has a unique ability to treat every patient as an individual, tailoring their treatment to his/her specific pathology and desired level of activity. As we have more and more objective research outcomes available, Lisa has refined her treatment strategies to reflect what is shown to be scientifically sound in the literature. I would trust her to treat any patient and even any member of my own family!"

"I had suffered from back pain for years and tried many other PT's and chiropractors until I met Lisa. She took a detailed history and thorough examination and over the course of my treatment with her made me pain free for the first time in years!! She was the only therapist or doctor that actually took the time to figure out what my problem was and now today 3 years later I am still pain free and using her exercises daily to stay that way!! She changed my life because I had started to accept I would always be in pain. Now at 43 I'm feeling better than ever and able to enjoy my kids and life without the constant worry of 'throwing my back out'. Thank you Lisa!"
