For anyone who hasn’t gotten the chance to meet our Physical Therapist, Shannon Zalewski, we asked one of our amazing Patient Service Coordinators to tell us what comes to mind when she thinks of Shannon. Michelle swiftly answered “…she’s sweet, patients absolutely love her, and she always give 110%”
Shannon received her Doctorate of Physical Therapy from the University of Puget Sound in Tacoma, Washington. After living in Seattle for a few years she returned back to sunny California. Boy, are we grateful that she did!
Shannon joined our Performance Physical Therapy Team as a Physical Therapist back in May of 2016. Today she is a Physical Therapist and Clinic Director of our Rancho Cordova office.
Compassionate and attentive, Shannon truly wants the best for her patients. She has always devoted herself to serving and helping people. Passionate about positive changes in people’s lives, she dedicates herself to building a healthier community. When we asked her about what she believes is critical to successful Physical Therapy treatment, she answered:
“I believe in a hands-on approach when treating patients. Educating patients on their injury to enable their participation in an active rehabilitation, in order to get them back to doing the things they love”
As a team, we appreciate Shannon’s gleaming personality and attitude towards her patients and her colleagues. She goes above and beyond by checking in with her peers and helping in any way she can.
