Julie Ehrlich believes in the power of personalized manual therapy and therapeutic exercise to ensure an effective and efficient return from injury. She values her relationships with patients and is dedicated to working with them from the time of injury to their return to a higher level of function. Her goal is to provide tangible results of progress as quickly as possible by implementing evidence-based techniques and exercises.
Julie’s interest in physical therapy stems from her participation in a two day bike ride to raise funds for wounded military veterans. She was inspired by these men and women, observing their persistent hard work, optimistic outlooks and refusal to give up. This led her to research projects strengthening protocols for individuals with lower extremity amputations.
Julie earned her Doctor of Physical Therapy degree from Columbia University specializing in orthopedic rehabilitation. During her time there, she volunteered at the university’s pro bono medical clinic, as well as participated in a service trip to Guatemala where she treated patients, educated students and helped build wheelchairs for those in need. She has also had clinical affiliations with several professional baseball teams where she became skilled in on-the-field assessments and taking an athlete through rehab from acute injury to re-entering the game.
With her background in sports, she understands that physical therapy does not end when the injury has healed. It takes patience and cooperation to rehab past the point of injury, to prevent recurrence.
