Meet the many wonderful people who make up our team at X10 Therapy.
Erin joined the X10 team in 2017 bringing her knowledge of knee recovery from 9 years of work in physical therapy, from being a technician to working as a Physical Therapist Assistant.
Erin’s work as a PTA took her from Michigan to Texas and back again, with time spent in skilled rehab centers, home health care, and outpatient therapy. Across the country, one thing never changed – the feeling of frustration seeing so many of her patients struggle immensely during total knee replacement recovery. “I knew there had to be a better way to do this”, and that’s when she found X10.
Intrigued and excited, Erin came onboard as an X10 Coach and is supporting and motivating patients on their journey through a faster, less painful, recovery with X10. To listen to an interview with Erin click here.
