     A neck and shoulder injury at the age of sixteen piqued her interest in physical therapy.
She felt that physical therapy helped her symptoms so much that she has made it her career to help others improve their quality of life through physical therapy.
     Luci is a highly-skilled therapist, but her specialty lies in treating sports related and overuse injuries of the shoulder and knee.  She credits her success in these areas to the training she received in obtaining her certificate in orthopedic manual physical therapy.  “I have had the opportunity to train with a lot of great therapists over the years,” says Luci.  “They have really helped me to hone my skills and knowledge.”  Luci is also a level 1 and level 2 Graston Technique trained therapist, which has worked wonders for her patients suffering with chronic cervical pain and headaches.  She is also trained in kinesiology taping.
     Luci is a native of Flushing, but now resides in Lake Orion with husband and two children.  She treats patients at Advanced Physical Therapy Center’s Clarkston Clinic.
