Laura Higgins, PT, DPT

OrthoVirginia Offices

Laura received her physical therapy degree from the University of Colorado in 2012 and has been practicing primarily in outpatient orthopedics since graduating.  She enjoys working as a physical therapist because she is able help people get back to participating in activities they enjoy. She is honored to get to know her patients well during their time in the physical therapy clinic.  She received a certification in Therapeutic Pain in 2019 which allows her to more effectively educate and treat patients affected by pain. Before working as a physical therapist, she worked as an engineer and enjoys the overlap of problem-solving skills she can still use on a day-to-day basis in the PT clinic. Laura speaks proficient Spanish. Outside of work, Laura enjoys camping, hiking, and spending time with family and friends.
