Vicky L. Bledsoe, LPT, LAT, Cert. MDT | Physical Therapist/Owner

Vicky L. BledsoeVicky began her career caring for injured athletes when she was 16 years old.  She began as a student athletic trainer when she became injured playing varsity volleyball.  She saw there was no one taking care of the female athletes so she became a student athletic trainer as well as a varsity athlete.  She worked football and all female sports before deciding that physical therapy was the career for her.

She went to Texas Tech University and graduated with a B.S. in Physical Education in 1990 with an emphasis on Athletic Training.  After graduating and obtaining her athletic training license, she then decided to go on to physical therapy school as the rehabilitation aspect of athletic training was the most challenging and rewarding for her.  Vicky graduated from the University of Texas Health Science in San Antonio in 1995 with a B.S. in Physical Therapy.  She has continued her studies of the human body through a vast array of continuing education courses.  With more than 20 years of experience as a physical therapist Vicky has experience working with a wide range of people ranging from teen athletes, to Olympic caliber athletes, to the average person just looking to be able to walk into their office or home from the car.

As if training for an Iron Man Triathlon wasn’t enough, Vicky recently completed  a series of advanced postgraduate courses to become a certified practitioner of the McKenzie Method® of MDT.

When Vicky has free time she enjoys running, cycling, swimming and attempting to play golf just to name a few of her favorite activities.  She also enjoys spending time lying on the couch doing nothing or watching her beloved Texas Tech Red Raiders.

Suzanne Downing, PT, DPT | Physical Therapist

Suzanne Downing 2Suzanne became interested in physical therapy after a sports injury when she was 14 years old. Her first stint in PT allowed her to return to playing the sports she loved, including basketball, through high school and intermural sports in college and graduate school.

This gave Suzanne insight into the trials and tribulations of rehab and she feels empathy and understanding of her patients as they go through the rehab process. She tries to create a fun, encouraging, and productive environment to help assist her patients to return to their passions.
