Lor-Shing Hsu

_______________

Born on the East Coast and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, Lor-Shing began her physical therapy journey as a patient herself after recovering from a sports injury. As a young athlete, Lor-Shing discovered the power of being an active participant in her recovery and was drawn towards the practical tools physical therapy provided to return to her sport.  She decided to pursue a career in physical therapy and graduated from the University of Washington with a Bachelor of Science in Physiology. She then received her Doctorate in Physical Therapy from Azusa Pacific University. To further advance her clinical practice, Lor-Shing completed the Kaiser Permanente Orthopedic Residency Program and subsequently, became board-certified in orthopedic physical therapy. During her graduate training, a close friend was diagnosed with an autoimmune disorder and began to develop persistent pain as a side effect of the condition. This catapulted Lor-Shing’s interest in practicing with a holistic view on active rehabilitation, appreciating the social, mental and emotional components of health. Along with her work at Evergreen, she is currently the physical therapist fellow at Kaiser Permanente Persistent Pain Fellowship Program where she is receiving post-graduate training in chronic pain management through physical therapy. In her free time, she spends time in community outreach to improve access to PT services by providing pro bono physical therapy services and educational classes to underserved and uninsured populations. Outside of her work, you’ll find Lor-Shing singing and playing on her guitar, leading small groups at her church and exploring parks and gardens around the greater Los Angeles area.
