Lisa Sullivan received her Master of physical therapy from Rutgers University School of Health Related Professions in 1994. Lisa’s interest in physical therapy was sparked by her experiences with ongoing back pain and knee instability due to a track injury in high school. Lisa’s personal journey with subsequent abdominal procedures and related groin and pelvic pain fueled her  interest in orthopedics and pelvic dysfunction.

Lisa began working in women’s health  at  Hackensack Meridian JFK Rehabilitation over 20 years ago, treating women with pelvic floor dysfunctions, osteoporosis, and providing post mastectomy care. Lisa has served as an adjunct instructor for women’s health at Columbia University and UMDNJ Kean Physical Therapy programs. She has been an active voice in the community providing  numerous lectures on pelvic health as well as  exercise classes for the high risk prenatal exercise classes.

Lisa has spent over 25 years working in outpatient physical therapy clinics working  with complex orthopedic issues including spinal and SI dysfunctions, osteoporosis, joint injuries, orthopedic surgeries, vestibular and balance disorders including BPPV and central nervous system disorders.  Lisa is known for her  exceptional manual therapy and orthopedic skills and her comprehensive treatment approach. She is extremely effective at  supporting the patient’s transition from injury to wellness.

When Lisa is not treating patients, she enjoys cycling, gardening, practicing the art of Qi Gong or time with her husband, dog, and children who are now at college.
