Lindsay Schmitz, PT, DPT
Lindsay Schmitz became a part of the ActiveCare Physical Therapy team in December, 2015. Lindsay graduated first in her class with Suma Cum Laude from Ithaca College with a Bachelor’s degree in Clinical Health Studies in 2013. She then completed her Doctorate of Physical Therapy at Ithaca College in 2015.
Lindsay is a manual based physical therapist who uses a wide range of treatment techniques to aide in the recovery of various orthopedic, sports-related and neurological injuries. It is her mission to provide patients with the necessary tools and education to lead the life they aspire to lead, without the constraints of pain or diagnosis.
Lindsay has a particular interest in the treatment and recovery of dancers and performing artists. Lindsay is a ballet and contemporary dancer herself, and she utilizes her knowledge of the precise biomechanics of the dancer’s body and dance-specific stresses imposed on the body to accelerate the rehabilitation of performing artists. When she is not dancing, she spends her time hiking, biking, running and drawing.
