About

Empowerment is the process of becoming autonomous over your life in order to become stronger, more resilient, centered, balanced, and better able to access your own healing potential. Empowering you to find your X — the intersection between your best movement and best life is the foundation of my treatment philosophy. I believe in helping people to achieve their ‘best self’ through promotion of an authentic healthy and active lifestyle, while providing a safe space for rehabilitation, growth, and healing.

My treatment approach is personalized to each individual and often includes a form of manual therapy, education and support, and a targeted exercise program. I strive to build trusting and solid relationships with each of my clients and insist on taking the time to listen and understand every person’s unique story because it is this story that provides the road map for our work together. I will collaborate with you to design a meaningful plan of care to assist in reaching your specific movement and health goals.

I believe in the application of strong patient communication and education, expert manual therapy skills, and exercise prescription for both rehabilitation and return to meaningful life-function — the level of which is unique to every person. I employ evidence-based treatment and exercise strategies for proper tissue healing time frames that incorporate postural awareness, neuromuscular reeducation, motor control, strength, endurance, power, and functional-movement training. I treat all musculoskeletal and orthopedic conditions and have a passion for working with people who experience auto-immune disorders, persistent pain, low back pain, running and cycling-related injuries, and other activity or occupational-related injuries. I also have a special interest in fall risk assessment and prevention for older adults.

My work has proven to help individuals of all ages and stages of health balance their physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual wellness by improving body-awareness through mindful movement. I am first and foremost interested in understanding every individual’s health and physical activity history, concerns, and future-goals, as these personal stories are critical for informing tailored care that enables client growth and self-improvement. I love to empower and instill confidence in others to find their inner strength and determination for continual wellness.

Fun Facts

When I am not Dr. Lindsay, I am "TT" to my beautiful and amazing niece and nephew. Spending time with my family is the highlight of my life. I am also a native Oregonian who loves and appreciates our amazing state. I enjoy running around the city or in Forest Park, taking long walks, hiking, stair climbing, strength training, sipping an almond milk mocha from Nossa Familia Coffee, visiting local plant shops, and spending long weekends at the Oregon Coast. I am an avid learner and seeker of knowledge and wisdom through reading (my book list keeps growing) and listening to evidence-based Podcasts.

I am involved with the Kaleidoscope Fighting Lupus Foundation where I provide education, recommendations, and resources to support group members as well as participate in the development and production of educational and fundraising opportunities.

Fun Fact: I was the OR State CAT 4 Women's Uphill Time Trialist Champion before experiencing a life-changing downhill crash that led me to become a PT.
