Lindsay Davidson, PT, MPT Physical Therapist
I grew up in Oklahoma City, OK and received a Bachelors in Health Studies from the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center in 2008. I then went on to receive my Masters of Physical Therapy from the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center in 2010. I have worked in the outpatient setting since graduating and have experience treating a variety of diagnoses. I chose physical therapy as a profession because it involves science, exercise, and the opportunity to make a difference in someone’s life, all of which I am passionate about.
I primarily see patients with pain involving the spine or extremities as well as those having difficulty with their balance or gait. I have also become interested in treating vestibular dysfunction. I am currently in the process of completing a certification in the McKenzie Method of Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy (MDT).
Why Physical Therapy?
Physical therapists (PT) are experts in the way the body moves. They are an integral part of your care team at Think and work side by side with your doctor. Our Doctors of Physical Therapy use scientifically-based techniques to improve pain and function and prevent injury or disability, so that you can get moving at your personal best.
If you are looking for an alternative to surgery, pain medication, or if you notice changes in your strength, balance or walking ability, consider physical therapy.
PTs help restore motion, strength and endurance to improve your overall function and quality of life.
Some of the Conditions We Treat
Your PT will develop a treatment program for your individual needs and goals.Treatment may emphasize pain reduction, strengthening, flexibility, postural alignment, balance, gait and endurance training to manage movement problems associated with:
- Orthopedic conditions (like acute or chronic pain from arthritis, injury, or surgery)
- Neurological conditions (such as stroke, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis)
- Cardiac or pulmonary conditions (heart attack, bypass surgery or COPD)
What can you expect from a Physical Therapist?
After careful examination, your PT will combine science with inspiration to teach you how to prevent or manage a health condition and help motivate you during your treatment so you can function optimally. Your PT will help you understand your body so you will achieve long-term health benefits.
