Dr. Erica Kirsch received her undergraduate degree in bioengineering from the University of Pittsburgh. Realizing she wanted to work more directly with patients she went on to obtain her Doctorate of Physical Therapy from Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. She then practiced in human physical therapy, working with a wide variety of patient populations with a focus in geriatrics. Dr. Kirsch has always loved working with animals and volunteered at an animal shelter on a regular basis when she wasn’t seeing patients. Knowing her true calling to be in animal rehabilitation, she then became a certified canine rehabilitation therapist in 2016 through the Canine Rehabilitation Institute. She has been helping four legged patients ever since.
Dr. Kirsch has a passion for providing quality physical therapy services to help pet’s maintain and improve their mobility. She values collaboration with local veterinarians to provide comprehensive care for her clients and patients. She is constantly learning and advancing her knowledge to be a better therapist. She has furthered her training in diagnostic musculoskeletal ultrasound to be able to help her patients even more. Dr. Kirsch particularly loves helping older pets regain some of their spark! Outside of the clinic, she enjoys spending time climbing, camping, and hiking with her husband and dog.
