Soundus 'Sue' Machtley, PT, DPT, OCS, MTC
Green Grass Physical Therapy is owned and operated by Soundus ‘Sue’ Machtley, PT, DPT, OCS, MTC. Sue is a board-certified Orthopedic Specialist and Certified Manual Physical Therapist who has worked in the field of physical therapy since 2002. She earned her doctorate degree in Physical Therapy from the University of St. Augustine with high honors. In 2008, she earned her Manual Therapy Certification (MTC), a prestigious achievement earned by fewer than 2000 Physical Therapists worldwide! While many therapists have exposure to manual therapy, few have taken the comprehensive amount of advanced coursework and demonstrated the expertise required to become certified. In 2010, Sue began working towards her Orthopedic Specialist Certification. She was officially certified by the American Physical Therapy Association as an Orthopedic Specialist in June 2011. While she has received advanced training in spine rehabilitation, she enjoys treating all areas of orthopedics. Learn more here.
Sue also has a strong interest in movement re-education and injury prevention. Through a thorough pre-screening process, Sue is able to identify movements that may be setting one up for injury. By performing specific neuromuscular re-education movements to re-train the body's movement and improve motor control, injury can be prevented. Further, output and performance can be optimized. Imagine having more strength, power and control! Learn more here.
Education is something highly valued by Sue. She was a teacher following her undergraduate coursework at the University of Southern California. She currently teaches continuing education to health care professionals throughout the country and serves as adjunct faculty at the Seattle Institute for Oriental Medicine. Sue incorporates a fair amount of teaching during her treatment sessions to empower patients to be more aware of how their body moves. Learn more here.
Sue has been a member of the American Physical Therapy Association since 2004.
