Physical therapy becomes essential in a wide variety of neurological conditions. Victims of a stroke, spinal cord injury, MS, Parkinson’s Disease, traumatic brain injury, and vestibular problems can find their mobility and quality of life severely impaired.
A physical therapist is trained to conduct physical therapy sessions based on individual requirements and other physical factors. Ms. Edwards holds an undergraduate degree in B.S Exercise Science and Minor Psychology from Gonganza University. She completed her Doctor of Physical Therapy from Regis University in 2009.
She as previously worked in the Harrison Medical Center for 7 years before joining the Kitsap Physical Therapy center in November 2016. Ms. Edwards is a Certified Stroke and Rehabilitation Specialist (CSRS) and her areas of special interest lie in stroke and brain injury rehabilitation.
