Lisa Kwan studied at University of CA, San Diego and graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Animal Physiology and Neuroscience. Lisa went on to receive her Master of Science degree in Physical therapy at Duke University in 2000. She has been practicing outpatient orthopedic physical therapy for the past 20 years, treating multiple injuries including muscle/tendon strain, overuse syndrome (i.e. carpal tunnel, tennis elbow), fractures, pre/post-surgical conditions, osteoarthritis, stenosis, spondylosis, cervical/lumbar disc injury, work injury and prevention to name a few.
Lisa has a whole body approach that combines understanding of anatomy, movement patterns and function. She is experienced in advanced myofascial release techniques, using manual and safe, ergonomic instruments to release scar tissue and fascia restrictions throughout the body. This results in significant pain relief, improved range of motion and function. She combines manual techniques with therapeutic exercise, body mechanics, posture, balance and neuromuscular re-education for a complete treatment regimen.
It is important to Lisa that patients receive individual care tailored to their needs. Lisa continues to enrich her knowledge in professional education to give patients the best and up to date care. Her past times include volunteering and visiting natural history and art museums, exploring archeology and nature through travels, hiking, biking and spending time with her family and friends.
