Lindsay Andrews

DPT
Clinic Manager
 
  • Lindsay was born and raised in Homewood, Alabama.  As the oldest of three kids in the golden-age of the 90s, Lindsay spent the bulk of her time playing outside with her brothers, competing in little league sports, surviving family road trips, and taking dance lessons.  In high school, Lindsay focused her attention more on dance team at Homewood High School, where she was named Captain and UDA All-Star, as well as soccer.  Unlike most future physical therapists, Lindsay managed to avoid injuries as a dancer or soccer player, most likely due to good old-fashioned luck and a fear of slide tackling. 

  • As a freshman at Auburn University, Lindsay had difficulty deciding on a major at first, starting out as an Engineering major, then switching to Mathematics, and then ultimately an unsatisfying Undeclared Science and Math major.  It wasn’t until Lindsay’s brother sustained a serious football injury during the first game of his senior year as starting quarterback that Lindsay discovered the field of physical therapy.  She witnessed his rehabilitation and recovery and recognized an opportunity to be part of a unique field of medicine in which she’d be able to have real connections with patients while using her love of science to get them back to the life they wanted to live. 

  • Lindsay graduated in May 2011 with a Bachelor’s degree in Exercise Science and started UAB’s Doctor of Physical Therapy shortly after that.  After completing her clinical rotations in a variety of settings in Greenville, SC; Navarre, FL; and Savannah, GA; Lindsay was excited to return home to Birmingham, graduate from UAB in November 2014, and start her career with Agile Physical Therapy in January 2015. 

  • As a former dancer (always a dancer?), Lindsay was initially drawn to Agile due to its reputation as one of the leading providers of dance medicine in the physical therapy world; however, she has stayed at Agile more so for its devotion to one-on-one patient care, innovative treatment methods, and holistic approach to rehabilitation.  During her time as a physical therapist at Agile, Lindsay has received advanced training and completed the following coursework:

  • IAMT Dry Needling Level 1 (April 2021)

  • Balanced Body Reformer 1 & 2 (August 2019) and Trapeze Table (March 2015)

  • Institute of Physical Art (IPA) Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation I and Pelvic Girdle Puzzle (2017 & 2015)

  • Rock Tape FMT Basic (August 2016)

  • Light Force Deep Tissue Laser Therapy (2016)

  • In Lindsay’s spare time, she enjoys traveling (especially to Blue Ridge, GA), reading a good page-turner, watching 80s/90s rom-com movies, and playing/getting frustrated with strategy-based board games.  Her favorite activities, though, are anything that involve spending time with her husband Ben and her rambunctious toddler Sam.  They are expecting baby brother Ezra to make an appearance sometime in October 2021!
