Richmond, VA (PRWEB) January 02, 2014
Tidewater Physical Therapy’s (TPTI) Glen Allen clinic near Richmond is pleased to welcome its newest Doctor of Physical Therapy to its team.
Lee Welch, PT, DPT, joined TPTI after earning his Doctorate of Physical Therapy at East Carolina University.
Interning with the Carolina Hurricanes and working with active duty U.S. Army soldiers in North Carolina helped created Welch’s treatment philosophy, which includes “listening to patients first and asking the right questions,” Welch said.
Welch discovered a passion for physical therapy in the wake of his own continual running injuries. After attempting to treat his own torn hamstring, Welch was referred to a physical therapist, which inspired him to switch from a career in pharmaceutical product development, where he worked for five years after earning his Bachelor of Science in Chemistry from North Carolina State University.
“I knew physical therapy would be a profession I would enjoy while making a tangible difference in the lives of patients,” Welch said.
While Welch enjoys treating a wide range of patients, he takes a particular interest in runners having worked in the running assessment clinic during his time at East Carolina University.
When he’s not in the clinic, Welch still runs and enjoys cooking…and eating.
The Glen Allen clinic is located in the Forum Building on Broad Street near Gaskins Road in Richmond and in addition to comprehensive physical therapy services, offers Lower Extremity Biomechanical Evaluations and Treatment, Custom Orthotics and Hand Therapy.
