Linda Overbay, PT, MSPT, OCS, CLT

Physical Therapist
Board Certified Orthopedic Clinical Specialist
Certified Lymphedema Therapist

"Although I played youth sports all through college, I never experienced physical therapy as a patient. I came to the profession after studying the sciences in college and then teaching English in Japan after graduation. The profession combines my interest in how the body works with the opportunity to teach patients one-on-one. The most gratifying part of the job is making a real difference in people's lives by allowing them to move more comfortably and efficiently."
