Dr. Christina Serzan, PT, DPT

Christie recently earned her Doctorate of Physical Therapy from The University of Scranton, where she previously obtained a B.S. in exercise science and concentration in nutrition. While at The University of Scranton, Christie and her peers were selected to present their research, “The Use of Topical Olive Oil as an Effective Preventative Measure for Pressure Ulcers: A Systematic Review,” at the APTA Combined Sections Meeting in New Orleans, LA.

 

Christie is interested in working with patients with various orthopedic conditions, as well as patients of all age ranges and activity levels.  She focuses her treatments on integrating new techniques with traditional interventions to improve her patients’ function. Because of her lifelong dance experience, Christie is also interested in helping dancers and sports athletes return to their previous levels of performance.  Her interest in dance continued as a competitive dancer and role as a team coach at The University of Scranton.

 

Christie is well known to many of our patients as she was our physical therapy aide for 10 years prior to getting her license. In her free time, Christie enjoys spending time with her family and friends, and going to concerts and sporting events. She loves talking to patients about sports, music, and anything Disney!
