Linsey James, PT, DPT, CLT-UE

Linsey earned her doctorate in physical therapy from Bellarmine University in December 2012 as well as her bachelor of health science in May 2011. The choice to pursue a career in physical therapy stemmed from volleyball-related injuries while playing at both Presentation Academy and Bellarmine University. However, during her studies at Bellarmine she was introduced to the specialty area of women’s health/pelvic floor rehab and was intrigued to gain additional knowledge regarding her own personal interest of pelvic pain. She was accepted to participate in a women’s health clinical assignment at the University of Michigan as a portion of her clinical externship requirements. In addition, she has completed various certification courses via the Section on Women’s Health (SOWH) through the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) regarding pelvic floor dysfunction and pregnancy. She has also completed additional certification regarding treatment and management of upper extremity lymphedema (CLT-UE) via Klose Training in 2014.

Throughout her years as a practicing physical therapist she has gained exposure to various practice settings of acute, outpatient, and inpatient rehabilitation. In the variety of settings, she gained exposure to multiple patient populations ranging from orthopedic to neurological while continuing to have specialty emphasis of upper extremity lymphedema and pelvic floor treatment of the female and male populations, with specific interest in pelvic pain. Linsey makes it a personal goal that every patient feels confident and comfortable to express their concerns, symptoms, and goals. “I think pelvic floor diagnoses and symptoms should not be treated as taboo discussion. It is another area of the body that is just as deserving for treatment, no matter its location on the body.”

Linsey is currently licensed in Kentucky and Indiana. She maintains memberships of the following organizations: American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) Section on Women’s Health, Kentucky Physical Therapy Association (KPTA), as well as holding a prior role of secretary on the Southeast District INAPTA board.

Linsey resides in the southend of Louisville with her husband and high school sweetheart Zach and their son Paxton. In her spare time she loves to spend time with family, play volleyball, shop, and enjoy the up-and-coming restaurants in Kentuckiana.
