As providers of physical therapy, we have the opportunity to impact lives each and every day. It’s why we get up in the morning and why we are passionate about what we do. In 2018, we’ve opened two new clinics with one goal in mind – to help the members of our community get back to the activities they love. Our Paradise Valley physical therapy clinic is conveniently located in North Paradise Valley at the southwest corner of E. Cholla St. and N. Tatum Blvd. Meet our staff and learn more about our newest clinic.
Meet Michelle Bogert, PT, DPT
The director of the new Paradise Valley Foothills Sports Medicine clinic is Michelle Bogert.
Michelle graduated from Azusa Pacific University in 2010 with a doctorate in physical therapy. After working with a variety of patient populations, such as pediatric, geriatric, and vestibular, she discovered her passion was working in orthopedics and especially sports medicine. Michelle is certified in trigger-point dry needling and utilizes other physical therapy tools such as Kinesio tape and the Graston tool to assist with achieving her patients’ therapy goals.
Michelle has been a part of the Foothills Sports Medicine family for the past six years. She has gained experience and clinical knowledge while working at the North Central Phoenix location. Michelle plans to use this experience to serve the patients at Paradise Valley.
Michelle takes pride in the quality staff she hires. She recently hired two physical therapy technicians who graduated from the pre-physical therapy program at Grand Canyon University in 2018. She will also be expanding her staff in September with physical therapist, Michael Price.
