About Elizabeth Gibbons
Elizabeth leads an active life, and she understands first-hand how injuries, pain, and physical dysfunction affect the whole person: body, mind, and spirit. She is passionate about guiding people through the healing process, helping them return to activity, and empowering them to be as independent as possible. Patients come to Elizabeth for her compassionate, whole-person, functional approach to physical therapy. She applies a biopsychosocial approach to assessing and treating patients that acknowledges that we humans are integrated mind-body beings; our bodies and minds influence each other. Elizabeth couples manual therapy and exercises for correcting muscle length, strengthening, and normalizing muscle activation and control of movements. She takes time to clearly answer patients’ questions about their conditions and the healing process. She is committed to building trusting relationships with patients. By these means, Elizabeth helps people become active amidst the injuries, balance difficulties, or strength deficits they face. Elizabeth earned her Doctor of Physical Therapy degree from Saint Catherine University after attending the College of Saint Benedict and Saint John’s University, earning a B.A. in Natural Science and a minor in Mathematics. Her passion for physical therapy comes from her attractions to learning, teaching, lifelong activity, and health and wellness promotion. In her spare time, she enjoys spending time with her husband, riding her bike, exploring the natural world on a hike or in a garden, trying new recipes, and actively developing authentic community with her church.
