Amy Farrell, PT, MS, ATC, CSCS graduated with a BS in Exercise Physiology in 1996 while participating in the Athletic Training Internship program from the University of Massachusetts Lowell. She went on to receive her MS in Physical Therapy in 1998.
She has spent the majority of her career working in outpatient settings, focusing on orthopedics, sports medicine, and vestibular therapy. Vestibular therapy is an exercise-based program designed to improve balance and reduce dizziness-related problems.
It is with her passion for vestibular therapy and her knowledge and experience with athletics that she brings an excellent combination of skills to help manage the challenging diagnosis of post concussive syndrome.
Amy works closely with the referring physician, athletic trainer, and other involved medical personnel to provide the highest quality of care to each of her patients and to establish a sound treatment plan that will allow for a quicker and safer return to activity.
