Jamie LigonDescribe what you do:

I evaluate and treat a wide range of musculoskeletal injuries such as sprains, strains, and overuse syndromes (arthritis, tendonitis, bursitis, fasciitis) as well as neurological conditions such as patients with Parkinson’s, Multiple Sclerosis, or Cerebral Palsy. I enjoy working with a diverse population from infants and children, to the elderly, to athletes. I value the importance of a hands-on approach and I’m a firm believer in functional training –getting patients to understand that the daily activities they perform will either help or harm the healing process in the long run.

If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you like to be?

Italy –awesome sites, amazing food, and gelato!

What is the one piece of advice you would like to share with the world?

To succeed in life you need three things: a wishbone, a backbone, and a funny bone. Basically, set goals, work hard, smile & roll with the punches.

What is your favorite holiday and why?

Spending time with family at Christmas (especially in my Wisconsin hometown- it’s like a winter wonderland). 

What is one of your professional goals?

Be a good teacher to equip patients with knowledge and tools to facilitate healing.

What was it that attracted you to your field?

Ever since my first injury (shin splints) in the 8th grade, I’ve been drawn to physical therapy for many purposes. As a former collegiate athlete, I had many reasons to seek physical rehabilitation (from torn tendons to ruptured discs). I value those experiences because it helps me as a therapist to relate to my patients now, knowing that it takes time and plenty of encouragement to overcome the mental and physical battles before feeling normal again.

If you had to choose another profession, what would you be doing?

Maybe a dolphin trainer in Hawaii? Some dreams never die 😉
