Greer Mackie has been practicing outpatient orthopedics and sports physical therapy since receiving a Doctorate in Physical Therapy from Washington University in her native city, St. Louis. Prior to receiving her doctorate, she attended DePauw University in Greencastle, Indiana with a bachelor’s degree in biology. She recently became board certified in Orthopedics by the American Board of Physical Therapy Specialties.
As an NCAA Division III All American tennis player, Greer directed her enthusiasm towards orthopedics. Since the beginning of her career, she has also taken a special interest in prevention of pain/injury as well as concussion management. She has worked with high school, college, and professional athletes, as well as the police and fire departments of Washington, D.C. after traumatic concussive injuries.
Greer has always taken pleasure treating patients with various backgrounds as she has had extensive experience during clinical affiliations in multiple areas of the country ranging from Morgantown, West Virginia to Phoenix, Arizona. She has also spent time as an APTA-certified clinical instructor supervising a group of third-year physical therapy students treating patients in Guatemala.
Greer has a real passion for getting patients back to their greatest potential and making the rehab process creative and fun along the way. Like the other PhysioDC clinicians, she shares a comprehensive treatment approach taking into account movement impairments during all daily activities that contribute to pain syndromes as well as prioritizing prevention of further symptoms. She takes great pride in her role as a physical therapist and is dedicated to continued learning and research.
