CSCS: Certified Strength & Conditioning Specialist
Allison Tabrys developed an enthusiasm for physical therapy as a teenager, working through her recovery from several soccer-related knee injuries. The summer before her freshman year of high school, Alli had ACL reconstructive surgery—her first of seven knee surgeries. During her recovery, she became fascinated with her physical therapist’s broad range of knowledge, enthusiasm, and team spirit.
She graduated from the University of Michigan’s School of Kinesiology with a B.S. in Movement Science. While at U of M, Alli’s devotion to physical therapy (and love for college football!) flourished. She assisted in research and wrote an insightful senior thesis studying the “Effects of Backpacks on Walking Biomechanics.”
Alli earned her Doctorate of Physical Therapy from New York University, where she found her niche in outpatient orthopedics and sports. While Alli enjoys treating patients of all ages and diagnoses, her experiences as a young patient helped shape her interest in treating female athletes. She draws on her own experiences to relate warmly to each patient, regardless of injury or age. Alli is certified in blood flow restriction (BFR)—a modality that has been proven to decrease muscle atrophy and increase strength. After personally experiencing the challenges of regaining strength and restoring balance following an injury, Alli has found that this can be a beneficial addition to patient’s recoveries.
Alli enjoys sports, the outdoors, and spending time with family and friends. Since recovering from her most recent knee surgery, Alli practices yoga regularly to help maintain her strength and mobility. She and her husband enjoy hiking, skiing, and spending their free time looking for new outdoor places to explore. When not participating in sports, Alli enjoys watching soccer and football—and especially cheering on Michigan football.
