Ashlee Fandel, MPT, MTC
Ashlee received her undergraduate in Biology from Mt. Mercy College in 1997 and her Masters in Physical Therapy from St. Ambrose University in 2000. She then furthered her education through St. Augustine University and obtained her Manual Therapy Certification in 2006.
Ashlee played basketball in college at Mt. Mercy and then went on to coach at Mt. Mercy and Kirkwood. She also was the physical therapist at Kirkwood for a number of years. Her love for sports continues as she attends and coaches numerous activities for her 2 children. She also enjoys seeing athletes in the clinic and assisting them to return to high level of competition.
Not only does she enjoy treating athletes, she also enjoys the challenges of everyday mishaps and overuse injuries. She typically puts into practice her Manual Therapy training with every patient using a “hands on” approach through soft tissue and joint mobilization. She believes that this combined with an individualized exercise program and education regarding activity modification and progression provides great outcomes.
Ashlee also specializes in orthotic fabrication including custom and off the shelf. With her knowledge of biomechanics and understanding how the entire body is affected from a minor flaw, she feels she can provide orthotics for each person from a global perspective with success.
In her spare time, Ashlee enjoys running, biking, attending sporting events, and spending time with her husband and children. She also loves being a Physical Therapist and helping individuals by connecting with them to understand them as a whole person.Back to Staff
