Experience

Maureen-MaddenMaureen Madden, PT, OCS has been passionately practicing physical therapist since 1991. She opened PT Pro in 2005. She has had the opportunity to work in a variety of settings that range from the chronic pain of an injured worker to the pressures of returning an NBA player back to the court. She has worked for large corporations and small privately owned clinics. She quickly built a reputation for passion, professionalism, and skill in all settings she entered. She has always pursued many opportunities at continuing education attending numerous classes in various methods of manual therapy and exercise training. She is board certified as an orthopedics with the American Physical Therapy Association.

Maureen has published articles in physical therapy and other journals and has been featured in both TV and magazine interviews. She has lectured to local physical therapists and many community groups on rehabilitation techniques and injury prevention. At The Stone Clinic in San Francisco Maureen was the director of rehabilitation for 4.5 years. In that time the department doubled in volume and size, and most importantly developed a reputation that brought patients from around the state of California for consultation. In that setting she had the opportunity to work side by side with an orthopedic surgeon assisting with evaluation of patients, care plans, and creating post operative and rehabilitation protocols. In San Francisco she worked with many X-game athletes and professional skiers.

As a clinical coordinator at HealthSouth in Phoenix Maureen had the opportunity to work with team physicians for the Phoenix Suns and Phoenix Coyotes treating many professional athletes in basketball, football, and hockey. She earned an excellent reputation among elite athletes and has always enjoyed a strong report with patients, physicians and other healthcare professionals.
