Elizabeth Baker, PT DPT
Elizabeth enjoys helping people of all ages and abilities achieve their individual goals by reducing pain,improving mobility and strength, and thereby restoring function. She effectively does this by performing a thorough evaluation to determine the structures involved and provides personalized treatments that combine healing hands-on manual therapy and therapeutic exercise.

Initially working in Neurological PT and Cardiac Rehab, she has since focused on Orthopedic PT for the past 13+ years. She is skilled in addressing most musculo-skeletal conditions, including but not limited to orthopedic and spine surgeries, sports injuries, and working with competitive athletes. Additionally, she has extensive experience with balance training, chronic pain, nerve pain, and total joint replacements. She likes assisting people with foot/ankle pathologies by casting for and designing custom foot orthotics.
Outside of work, Elizabeth has many hobbies she enjoys with her family, including: horse-back riding,hiking/camping, sailing, snow boarding, rally-x racing, reading, baking, and gardening.
