Dr. Amy Hevener , DPT, FMSC, COMT
Amy is originally from Mississippi and completed her undergraduate degree in Health Sciences at Southern Adventist University in Collegedale, TN in 2013. She worked as a tech in outpatient orthopedics and inpatient rehab before returning to school. She completed her doctorate in physical therapy at Andrews University in Berrien Springs, MI in 2017. During her clinical experience she gained experience working with athletes at the Tulane Institute of Sports Medicine and has had a passion for outpatient orthopedics ever since.
Before coming to Synergy, Amy worked in an outpatient clinic in Lynchburg for two years. During that time she completed a certification in Orthopedic Manual Therapy and continues to have a strong manual therapy focus to her treatment. In addition to treating orthopedics, Amy has an interest in treating women’s health, especially pre and post-natal patients, and vestibular therapy. Her favorite part of being a physical therapist is the one on one connection that she gets to make with patients and making a difference in their lives.
Amy and her husband Richie live in Buena Vista with their dog Waylon and enjoy spending time outdoors. Amy is excited to join Synergy to be able to spend quality, personal time with her patients and continue to grow as a clinician in a holistic environment.
