Erica Liepelt's bio

This content was provided by Erica Liepelt "Erica Liepelt joined North Lake Physical Therapy in January of 2012. Raised in Seattle, Erica moved to the Portland area to study Occupational Therapy, receiving her degree from Pacific University in 1987. She was offered an immediate position to train as a hand therapist, a rare opportunity for a new graduate. She quickly fell in love with this very biomechanical niche of rehabilitation, training under many of Portland's finest hand surgeons. In 1993 she became one of the country's first certified hand therapists (CHT) and has been enjoying her work ever since. Erica enjoys the mechanical aspect of hand therapy, sorting out symptoms with her patients and then offering a simple, specific program to put them in control of their injury or condition, and then ultimately, life! She is an active member of the American Society of Hand Therapists and is currently pursuing her certification in Selective Functional Movement Assessment (SFMA). This method identifies problematic movement patterns that can be the source of pain in other areas of the body. Weekends are spent chasing all manner of things; two teenage daughters, a husband, an irish setter and St. Bernard, the perfect wave, fresh powder, a good book, a good meal, a blooming garden and always, a spot in the sun! Favorite quote:"You can't stop the waves, but you can learn to surf." –Jon Kabat-Zinn"
