Sol Physical Therapy » Bio of Suzanne Lynch, MPT, CMP
Suzanne is a functional manual physical therapist with a passion for integrating Pilates into her treatment approach. She is a recent transplant to Seattle from New York City. While in New York, Suzanne worked on the Broadway community healing high level performers in such acclaimed shows as Billy Elliot, West Side Story, Hugh Jackman Back on Broadway, Mary Poppins and the Radio City Rockettes to name a few. She also spent time honing her skills while touring Europe with Madonna’s Sticky and Sweet Tour.
Suzanne believes in utilizing a holistic approach to treatment by looking at the whole body and developing a unique treatment plan custom tailored to fit the individual person. She has taken numerous manual therapy courses and has an advanced certification in the Mulligan technique - an effective manual approach that addresses musculoskeletal disorders with pain-free manual joint “repositioning” techniques for restoration of function and abolition of pain. She has also lectured nationally on performing arts medicine.
Physical Therapy is a 2nd career for Suzanne. After graduating from UCLA with a degree in theater she spent over a decade performing as a professional musical theater dancer. In 1999, she returned to Western University of Health Sciences to earn her Master’s Degree in Physical Therapy. Suzanne believes that she has a unique understanding of the body having two different career paths that incorporate movement as part of life.
She is thrilled to open Sol Physical Therapy in Seattle and looks forward to helping you achieve your physical therapy goals with a compassionate, functional and effective approach to physical therapy.
