Meet the Tennis Elbow Queen Emma Green
Virtual Physical Therapy. It's a thing and it works. Emma Green shares with us how she has helped many people around the globe recover from injuries from sports like tennis and golf without surgery or invasive measures. Back pain? She has a program for you too.
Emma found physical therapy through being a patient herself at age 13 – after the doctor told her that she needed to give up gymnastics – which she thankfully didn’t have to do. She quickly realized that physical therapy was the career for her as she thoroughly enjoys helping people and solving people's health and wellness challenges, many times surprising the medical doctors by how well her clients recover.
A common phrase you’ll hear her say is “I love proving the doctors wrong!” when clients are told they will have to give up something they love, like soccer, running or even long walks.
