She received her Doctorate of Physical Therapy at Franklin Pierce University in 2019. Her career focus and interests are in orthopedics and sports physical therapy. She has experience working with athletes of various sports, ages, and experience levels and has a special interest in working with soccer athletes, runners, and lifters. Lynelle is passionate about treating each patient, taking both physical and psychosocial components of rehabilitation into consideration. She emphasizes patient education throughout a plan of care in order to help her patients not only recover from injury but to minimize future injury risk.
She is a member of the Seattle Pediatric Sports Medicine (SPSM) ACL Prevention Task Force and is pursuing her Sports Certified Specialist designation (SCS). She is currently certified in Emergency Medical Response for the Athlete (ERA) and Myofascial Decompression (MFDc), also known as cupping. Lastly, Lynelle is TPI certified. TPI Medical Certification gives medical professionals golf-specific injury assessment and rehabilitation techniques to get players back in the game. Medical Certification looks at how these injuries develop, how to access and treat injuries and how specific physical limitations can be addressed to improve performance. In treatment she utilizes joint mobilization, joint manipulation (grd V HVLAs), tool-assisted massage (IASTM), massage, Kinesiotaping and McConnell taping techniques, and Voodoo bands.
