Lisa Kanning joined Team Evolution during the summer of 2011 after working in a vestibular rehabilitation clinic where she specialized in the treatment of disorders related to imbalance and dizziness in Las Vegas, NV. Her work also included participation in normative data collection of balance and vestibular function in Division 1 football players with interest in post-concussion comparisons. In Las Vegas she had the opportunity to work with performance athletes in Cirque de Soleil and Blue Man Group. She also served as adjunct professor for Touro University in Nevada in the physical therapy department lecturing and assisting in laboratory sessions throughout the curriculum. Prior to her work in the vestibular world, Lisa’s primary clinical experience has been in orthopedic settings that offered several aspects of rehab including sports medicine, occupational medicine, women’s health and post-operative management. She has also developed community programs for injury prevention and wellness for senior citizens as well as local high school athletes. Her passion for working with active individuals is based on her diverse athletic background which led her to Marquette University where she graduated with an undergraduate degree in English while a 3-year starter for the women’s basketball program and eventual MU Athletic Hall of Fame member.

Lisa played basketball professionally in Europe for one year prior to beginning her graduate work in physical therapy. She graduated from Marquette University’s Master of Physical Therapy program cum laude in 2003. In 2008 she became certified as a Strength and Conditioning Specialist through the NSCA.  She continued her work in speciality training by becoming a certified orthopaedic manual therapist through Maitland in 2014 and has achieved Level 1 and 2 certifications in trigger point dry needling through Kinetacore as well as Advanced Spinal Manipulation Institute.
