Welcome to the A2 Family Elie Hsu!
After growing up in Bellingham, WA, Elie obtained her BS in Biology from the University of Washington. Upon graduation, she moved to Nashville, TN to complete her Doctorate of Physical Therapy at Belmont University. Her love for physical therapy is rooted in her passion to help those around her get back to what they love to do, whatever that may be. She hopes to help her patients overcome debilitations and become more active. Teaching individuals what they can do to improve their own lives both immediately and for years to come is also a goal of hers. She loves the interpersonal aspect of physical therapy and cannot wait to broaden her experience, skills and knowledge at A2. In her spare time she can be found hiking, running, working out and spending time with her family and friends.
"I had a lot of fear after surgery, afraid that I would not regain mobility and strength. I feel that A2 helped me achieve a higher plateau of health, motion, and strength than I would’ve achieved elsewhere. Also, A2 has taught me the exercises to go even further, to strengthen and mobilize my shoulder. I fully trust A2 and will recommend them to all my friends, family, and coworkers. They have all treated both me and my wife with a gentle kindness that is rare today and have made us feel welcome in their care. Very professional, but with a sense of caring; that is how I would describe A2. I will miss them all and am very grateful to have been in their hands."
"My experience was great. Pain in my lower right quadrant of my back is virtually gone. This has improved my quality of life tremendously. Everyone I had contact with was very courteous and helpful. Special thanks to Alika and Danny for helping me learn exercises that have helped my back. Thank you."
"Before I started coming to A2 I was always tired and could barely pick up or carry my grandchildren a ½ block. After the first 6 weeks of working with Kristi I got a big surprise when I took my grandchildren to a festival and carried the youngest 4 blocks before she woke up enough to walk. I then picked her up and put her on my shoulders so she could see better without effort. I was amazed at how much strength I had gained in a short time. I continue to see improvement in my strength and I’m no longer tired all the time."
