Dr. Johnitia Williams
I'm a Physical Therapist committed to improving the way people move and perform. I enjoy helping people live healthy and active lives. My passion for fitness and health was acquired at a young age. As a youth, I participated in soccer, gymnastics, cheerleading and basketball. Overtime my interest in basketball grew, leading to a NAIA Division 1 athletic scholarship. As an athlete, I've had my share of injuries and know what it's like to recover.
I have experience treating many orthopedic and sports conditions including orthopedic surgeries (pre & post-op), osteoarthritis, tendinitis, bursitis, headaches and other painful conditions of the back, neck, shoulder, hip, knee, foot and ankle. I've worked with a variety of ages, including high school and college athletes.
I'm a Board Certified Clinical Sports Physical Therapist and a Certified Strength & Conditioning Specialist who takes pride in developing individual programs for both adults and youth. These programs focus on alleviating pain, restoring movement, injury prevention and meeting the client's goals for performance as in walking, running, jumping, speed and power. My goal is to help you walk without pain, run more efficiently, become more explosive and quick, play at the next level (high school or college)or just live an active life.
As a Primary Care Musculoskeletal Provider I can evaluate and diagnose most musculoskeletal conditions prior to visiting a physician, which allows for direct access to treatment.
I have advance knowledge in manual therapy which include soft tissue mobilization, IASTM, joint mobilization and certified in Integrative Dry Needling. Other skills include Kinesio Taping, BFR, video movement analysis and Return to Play. Let's improve your movement, manage your pain, prevent injury, restore function, and enhance performance.
