Licensed health professionals get specific graduate training in physical therapy. You may hear them called PTs or physiotherapists.

Lucas Briggs DPT, CSCS, Astym Certified is the PT at Keays Medical Group. Lucas practices a collaborative approach focused on empowering patients to do the things that they want to do with more ease and less pain. Lucas understands that humans are both unique, complex, and works with patients to tailor their rehabilitation to the unique needs of their nervous system.

Lucas completed his undergraduate degree at the University of Pittsburgh where he was a kicker on their football team. He then graduated from Grand Valley State University in 2013 with a Doctorate of Physical Therapy and is passionate about working with patients managing and recovering from persistent pain. Lucas is a bit of a continuing education junkie and has enjoyed integrating concepts and techniques from several different frameworks into his practice. Lucas’ most recent courses have focused on chronic pain, orthopedic injuries, sports performance, postural restoration, breathing, ACL rehabilitation and vestibular dysfunction.

Lucas enjoys spending his free time with his wife and two kids adventuring in the outdoors and playing the games that his kids dream up. Lucas is a jock, nerd, spiritual explorer, sensory seeker, gardener, coffee/tea enthusiast, and family man: not in that order.
