Meet Lyon-Martin’s new PHYSICAL THERAPIST, AJ Pluss, DPT 😍😌
AJ (they/them, she/her) is a physical therapist specializing in chronic pain, general outpatient orthopedics, and pelvic floor rehabilitation.
AJ came to PT through health justice organizing and is really excited to join the team at Lyon Martin to work with other trans, gnc, nb and queer folks and to work in a politicized environment. Her political work has spanned racial justice, health and healing justice, prison industrial complex abolition, and indigenous solidarity work, as well as educating physical therapy students on social justice issues within PT and health care. Important frameworks of her practice include disability justice, anti-fatphobia, and integration of up to date pain science. They are Zapa (their parent name) to a wonderful and wild toddler and also love to cook, garden, and be out in nature.
We are beyond thrilled that AJ has joined our team, as gender affirming physical therapists are extremely difficult to find! AJ will be a key member of our interdisciplinary chronic pain management and substance use disorder treatment teams and will be able to support our patients who have chronic pain due to vaginoplasty complications, sexual trauma and atrophy due to long term testosterone use and menopause 🔑 ...
