“Health, Fitness & Injury Prevention in the Police Department

Allison developed an enthusiasm for physical therapy as a teenager, working through her recovery from several soccer-related knee injuries. The summer entering her freshman year of high school, she had ACL reconstructive surgery, her first of seven knee surgeries. During her recovery, she became enamored with the broad range of knowledge, enthusiasm, and team spirit of her physical therapists.

Allison’s passion for physical therapy grew throughout high school and college. She studied at the University of Michigan’s School of Kinesiology and graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Movement Science. While at U of M, Allison’s love for college football (GO BLUE!) and devotion to physical therapy flourished. She assisted in research and wrote an insightful senior thesis studying the “Effects of Backpacks on Walking Biomechanics.” 

Allison attended graduate school at New York University, earning her Doctorate of Physical Therapy, while finding her niche in outpatient orthopedics and sports. While Allison enjoys treating patients of all ages and diagnoses, her experiences as a patient, beginning at age 14, helped shape her interest in treating female athletes (pre, post, and non-operative). Using her own experiences, she warmly relates to each patient, regardless of injury or age. 

Allison revels in sports, the outdoors, and spending time with family and friends. Since her recovery from her most recent knee surgery, Allison practices yoga daily to help maintain her strength and mobility. She and her husband enjoy hiking and skiing, spending their free time looking for new outdoor places to explore. When not participating in sports, Allison enjoys watching soccer and football with her husband, cheering on Michigan football on Saturdays and the Jets on Sundays.

This week on #functionalfitnessfriday, @allib722 and @k_dorsett once again challenge you to #getoutside! This week lets try some #lunges. A lunge is simply a single leg exercise that work a good portion of you lower extremity. These muscles include your #glutes, #quads, #hamstrings, #core, and #hip. Lunges help develop overall lower body strength and muscular endurance. Lets take a look at 3 variations. Forward lunges- take a large step forward and then drop your back knee down to the ground. Keep your front knee in line with your ankle, avoiding bringing your knee in front of your toes or too far to the middle. Then, step up onto the lead foot and repeat the same sequence with the opposite foot. Remember the lunge is not a forward movement, it’s a straight down motion. Backward lunges- take a large step back and then drop your back knee down to the ground. Keep your front knee in line with your ankle, avoiding bringing your knee in front of your toes or too far to the middle. Then, return to starting position and repeat on the opposite side. Side lunges- take a large step to the right. While keeping your left leg straight, lunge to your right keeping your right knee behind your toes and your hips back. Then, rise up on your right leg and repeat again. After performing 2 repetitions (or whatever your space allows) repeat the same thing on your left leg. #ExcelPTnj #fortlee #summerbodyseason #girlswhodoPT #choosePT #fitnesslife #legday #outdoorworkout #trainoutdoors #sunsout #beachbody #lunge
