Dr. Amy Neyer PT, DPT (she/her)
Hi, I’m Amy, and I am so excited to meet you!
I work with people with neurologic diagnoses, rare diseases, and chronic conditions. I am passionate about helping people regain function and take control of their lives.
After graduating with my doctorate in physical therapy from Mount St. Mary’s University, I began working in acute rehabilitation, helping patients return home after their hospitalizations. I also served as adjunct faculty in the neuro curriculum at Mount St. Mary’s, and became a certified clinical instructor for PT students.
When my son was born in 2015, I learned first-hand about the unique challenges that stem from rare and chronic illnesses; my physical therapy practice has been enriched and guided by my experiences as a mother to a child with complex medical needs. Too often people with rare and chronic conditions are met with skepticism and a lack of support and knowledge from medical professionals. I am truly honored to be a part of your healing journey and will work with you to develop a care plan with other knowledgeable professionals to foster your autonomy, independence, dignity, and improved quality of life.
When I’m not at [re+active], I can be found spending time with my family! I live in Torrance with my husband, son, and bernedoodle puppy. You can often find us walking our dog at the beach and frequenting the local playgrounds in the South Bay. I love physical activity, and spend most of my free time running, swimming in the beautiful Pacific Ocean, and hiking.
If you’re dying to know more, here are 3 things you don’t know about me...
I am a writer and a speaker, with several articles and stories on rare diseases and parenting published online. I am now branching out into children’s books, too!
I practice mindfulness meditation every day and keep a daily gratitude journal. I believe strongly in the positive roles gratitude and meditation play in our health and wellness.
As a child, I learned how to read music before I learned to read words. I love to play my flute, jam on the ukulele, and sing whenever possible. In fact, you might even hear me singing during our physical therapy sessions!
I cannot wait to meet you and help you live your life in the way that is most meaningful to YOU!
