Meet Your Physical Therapist
Rebecca Espey, Physical Therapist
Dr. Espey was technically born in Dover, Delaware, but claims San Antonio as her home. She earned her undergraduate degree in Kinesiology with an emphasis in Motor Control and minored in Psychology. She went on to earn her Doctorate in Physical Therapy from UT Health Science Center San Antonio (now UT Health San Antonio).
Dr. Espey became a physical therapist because she saw firsthand a therapist working with a family member who was able to return to her life without pain or functional limitations following an injury. Dr. Espey is passionate about physical therapy because the profession focuses on problem solving the best way to help each individual person recover and meet his or her own goals. She also loves how physical therapists walk the patient through the entire recovery process, which allows for developing relationships with people not just "patients".
When not at work, Rebecca enjoys a variety of activities, including:
- Running and volunteering at half/full marathons along with competing in triathlons
- Practicing guitar
- Exploring new cities
- Road trips with friends and family
