DPT – Doctor of Physical Therapy
Amanda is a licensed physical therapist at our East Grand Rapids clinic. She received her Bachelor of Science in Biology from Calvin College in 2010 and her Doctorate of Physical Therapy from Elon University in North Carolina in 2015.
Amanda’s utmost importance in practice is individualized evidence-based care to ensure that client’s needs are met. She believes that body awareness is key for improving health; from the athlete to the individual recovering from surgery. Her practice integrates multiple approaches emphasizing manual therapy, McKenzie and Mulligan techniques, kinesiotape, pilates and yoga, and strength and conditioning. Amanda’s interests are and continue to grow in caring for pelvic floor health, prenatal and postnatal care, spine, shoulder, and post op. She is excited to meet and partner with you to reach your personal goals.
When away from the clinic, Amanda finds joy in cross training and weight training, leading as a youth leader, brunch, cooking, and spending time with her husband Eddie and their dog Row. With a prior career in wildlife biology researching sea turtles in Florida and the American badger in Wisconsin, you will find Amanda most often outside hiking or exploring with family and friends.

I experienced you as kind, clear and direct in your communication, and collaborative in planning the treatment plan and schedule. Even through the Covid-19 shut down you stayed in touch to assure understanding. I appreciate the financial arrangements you made to offer therapy even when the insurance request was denied.Bob
