Mary Beth Ackerman, PT, CIMT
Mary Beth graduated from the University of Montana Physical Therapy Program with high honors in 1997. She is a certified pre/post-natal exercise consultant and a Certified Integrated Manual Therapist.
She has worked in a variety of settings, including acute patient care, skilled nursing facilities, a continence center, and outpatient. Her professional interests include sport and spine rehabilitation, gait/movement analysis, custom orthotics, the tri-athlete client, and women’s health issues.
Mary Beth grew up in Alaska, and after school in Montana she moved to Pueblo, CO to work at a hospital there. She transferred to Seattle in 2001 to be closer to family and return to water and green surroundings. She enjoys taking in local sporting events and scuba diving in both local and tropical destinations. She has also competed in various distance triathlons to stay active and help her understand the finer points of cross-training. Her triathlon experience ranges from sprint triathlons to full Ironman events.
Her treatment philosophy focuses on looking at the person as a whole. It takes many pieces of the puzzle put together to find a treatment designed for each individual. Understanding that people have very busy lifestyles, she incorporates a “quick and easy” home program as well as other small functional changes that will improve her patient’s quality of life.
