Stephanie Clark, PT, DPT, OCS is a physical therapist specializing in a variety of orthopedic conditions. She received her doctorate of physical therapy from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga in 2014. She continued her education in orthopedics following graduation by pursuing a residency with Benchmark Rehab Institute which she completed in 2015. She has gone on to become board certified in orthopedics by the American Physical Therapy Association obtaining Orthopedic Clinical Specialist certification (OCS) in 2017.
Her passion for orthopedics extends to every facet of outpatient physical therapy from generalized pain to specific injury/surgery. Her favorite challenge in orthopedics is to ascertain the causative source of “pain”
be it spine or extremity. She excels at treating a variety of conditions including cervicothoracic, lumbopelvic, shoulder, elbow, wrist/hand, hip, knee, foot/ankle.
Stephanie has completed extensive additional training in the treatment of runners at the P.A.C.E. Running Center in Portland, OR. She has also completed a year-long residency in treating Rock Climbing Injuries with Jared Vagy’s Rock Rehab Institute (The Climbing Doctor) who is an elite climber and PT. She also has a background in sidelines coverage for football, soccer, and basketball, and ran injury screening clinics for several local high schools in her early career.
She is an avid trail runner, cyclist, backpacker, climber, snowboarder, and general adventurer, and very much enjoys treating people who share these interests. Whether the client is a weekend warrior, serious athlete, has just had an orthopedic surgery, or is generally experiencing pain of an orthopedic nature, she is excited about identifying the client’s goals for physical therapy, and helping them to achieve these goals along every step of the way.
