Stacie earned her Doctor of Physical Therapy degree from Duke University in May, 2015.Prior to Duke, Stacie received her B.S. in Exercise Science from Illinois State University where she was a NCAA student-athlete, earning several honors in gymnastics.
As a former collegiate gymnast, and current Olympic Weightlifter, Stacie has had her fair share of orthopedic injuries/ surgeries and understands how detrimental an injury can be for an athlete at any level. Stacie has a special interest in the treatment of sports injuries, various orthopedic conditions, and incorporating manual therapy, neuromuscular re-education and sports performance enhancement into her treatment plans.
In her spare time, Stacie tries to stay as active as possible and has competed in Powerlifting, Bodybuilding and most currently is pursuing her passion for Olympic Weightlifting. Stacie currently works with athlete’s and patient’s of all ages, levels and from many different sports. Stacie takes an active role in treatment plans and spends a lot of time analyzing movement patterns, identifying deficits then working one-on-one with her patient’s to improve body mechanics with different movements to not only FIX the current problem, but to also PREVENT further compensations and degeneration on the body.
The Physio Fix was created by Stacie Morris, PT, DPT in 2017. Stacie had been working in an outpatient sports physical therapy setting for a couple years, rushing through 20+ patients a day, spending too many nights and weekends doing the documentation she never had time for in the clinic, because she understood the importance of spending time with her patients. But she knew something was missing, she was frustrated by all the paperwork, the long hours and having too many patients at one time that she was unable to provide the type of skilled physical therapy service she wanted to. This was upsetting, if only she had more one-on-one time with patients. If only she didn’t have to jump through hoops and write so many notes for insurance companies. If only she didn’t care about her patients and wanting better care for them, something she was very capable of and passionate about. Stacie knew she could and needed to do better.
Stacie had an idea that many things could be accomplished online, through telemedicine and this supplement to hands on therapy is exactly what the PT industry was missing and she could focus on spending more time with patients and teaching them how to move better to prevent future injuries.
Stacie finally took the plunge in 2017 and decided to quit her full-time job to take on the large task of not only creating an online database to teach people how to move better, but also implement an online telemedicine platform the same time she also opened up a stand-alone facility in Phoenix, AZ.
Stacie realizes not everyone has access to a Physical Therapist that understands their sport, their goals and their time. She aims to be able to provide skilled physical therapy programming for those in need of remote PT services further away but also those patients that are near her and want that hands-on experience in the Phoenix, AZ area.
