“I have sent many patients to Dr. Lightsey and am consistently extremely pleased with her services. Her clinical judgement is superior due to her advanced training combined with depth of experience in the field. When I send my patients to Lightsey Physical Therapy, I know they will return with a positive report and will improve to their maximum personal potential.” ​ ---Rachel Bramson, MD

"Dr. Amanda Lightsey, the epitome of professionalism and passion, continues to astound me as she works to achieve optimal results from our one-on-one, personally-designed, physical therapy sessions.  Her undivided attention, empathy, and perceptive nature during our sessions is invaluable and provides a compassionate and caring environment that promotes success and healing.  These qualities, coupled with her extensive knowledge and ability to communicate that knowledge regarding specific exercises and precise techniques, further promote effective performance of my home program.  Dr. Lightsey creates and maintains rapport with her clients – she truly invests in them.  She successfully researched my unique problem, encouraged me to acquire a definitive diagnosis, and developed detailed exercises to alleviate my pain.  My progress has been remarkable and my sincere thanks and gratitude belong to Dr. Lightsey".​  ---Pam Francis

"Barbara and I have benefited in multiple ways from the physical therapy we have received from Amanda Lightsey over the past several months.  She has not only competently explained the various therapies, exercises and procedures but has clearly and adequately amplified the purpose, extent, function and expected results of each as well.  This has given us a level of comfort and assurance that what we are experiencing is beneficial and will certainly allow us to attain the goals we have in rehabilitation and therapy. We do appreciate her professionalism and competence in working with us". ---- John Moehlman

"By far, no comparison, with any other PT (and I've had a lot) - this was the most helpful, hopeful, useful therapy I've ever had. And, I get my own "bag of tools" for a lifetime of use. An answer to a prayer! Thank- you!" --JC 2023

"I can't say enough good things about Dr. Lightsey. Her treatment went way beyond just treating my injuries; it was life changing. Equipped with the series of customized exercises that she prescribed (including pictures and explanations), I'm confident that I will become stronger and more flexible over time, and, (barring illness and accidents), will be far less likely to become injured in the future. I'm back to running and doing Pilates without pain. I'm so grateful to Dr. Lightsey for her knowledge, her close attention to the way my body works (and doesn't work), her stellar teaching skills, and her good humor and optimism, which made working with her a joy." --Susan Adams, 2024

"I've been to several excellent physical therapists, but the one-on-one approach I received from Amanda was unlike anything I had experienced before. This degree of attention meant no only that my care was personally targeted to my situation, but that she continually modified my exercise regimen based on my progress. That, for me, was the key to positive results." --Kara Socol 2020

"I didn't know what to expect as this was my 1st PT experience. She came highly recommended and I know why now. Amanda is an excellent Physical Therapist. She understands when and where you need instructions and how to get the best results. The instructions were so easy to understand and left no question as to why or how. She has an excellent manner and I was very comfortable from the beginning. I would highly recommend her and I have several times already. The therapy has helped me and I have tools to continue to maintain and improve. Thanks Amanda!" -- Andrew O'Connor 2021

"I love this practitioner and recommend her all the time to others. She doesn't focus my time on rote exercise for one issue but instead explores how my problem may have caused alterations in other areas. Then the exercises target all those issues so the problem resolves instead of being temporarily fixed, leaving residual problems." --Suzanne Droleskey 2023

"Dr. Lightsey has been the best therapist I've had since my undergrad university therapist over 35 years ago! She is highly knowledgeable, experienced, and thorough in detail. She is cheerful, reassuring, understanding and wonderful to work with. Thank-you Dr. Lightsey!" --TJ 2023

I recommend her highly."  ---MR 2022

"I have been blessed to be directed to Amanda. Her therapy for me was not the same old "generic" therapy I previously received over the years. It was very specific to my issues. She is professional, compassionate; and her one on one interaction helped with consistency and progress. She is the only therapist who ever helped me." ---Vickie Colson, 2022

"Dr. Lightsey is amazing. She is the first physical therapist who has been able to find the source of my pain and develope a treatment and exercise plan that actually worked.

I'm standing up straight again, chores are much easier, and much of my chronic pain is gone. Thank you so much for your help!" ---Sandra Childers 2021

"Amanda is an excellent physical therapist. Her grasp of the body and its workings are superior! She explains in a way that makes perfect sense. She doesn't speak in medical terms but puts it in lay person so you can understand the how and why. She is compassionate, empathetic, and strives to get you better quickly. No fancy equipment to have to use - she teaches you how to use things you have at home. Her exercises I will use for a lifetime to stay in top physical shape. This PT isn't my first, but it helped me more than any other I've had. And, she's nice and friendly to boot! I highly recommend her and have to many of my friends!" ---Donna O'Connor 2021
