A successful physical therapist is also a compassionate teacher, according to Lynn Parrish of Therapeutic Associates Medford Physical Therapy.
Working as a physical therapist for 33 years, Parrish believes in educating her patients so they can understand the healing process and be as independent as possible. The University of Oklahoma graduate has worked with a variety of patients over the years. She currently specializes in treating patients coping with balance and vestibular dysfunction that can cause dizziness and vertigo. She also works with patients undergoing pulmonary rehabilitation and musculoskeletal problems. She has spent several years working with patients with multiple sclerosis.
