Welcome Assistant Professor
Teresa Bisson , PT, MSPT, NCS, ATP

MEDPHYSTHER Faculty Teresa BissonTeresa Bisson is pleased to accept an Assistant Professor appointment in the Program of Physical Therapy at the University of Minnesota.  Teresa was born and raised in Michigan, and attended Grand Valley State University in Grand Rapids, Michigan, where she earned her Master’s Degree in Physical Therapy in 2002.  Shortly after graduating, Teresa relocated to Los Angeles, California, and began her clinical practice with emphasis in the treatment of individuals with neurological conditions.  She earned her Neurology Certified Specialist (NCS) certification from the APTA Board of Physical Therapy Specialties in 2008.  She is currently working on completing her Doctorate in Physical Therapy degree at Western University of Health Sciences in California. 

The majority of Teresa’s clinical practice in the past twelve years has been spent at Rancho Los Amigos National Rehabilitation Center, one of the top rehabilitation hospitals in the United States. In addition to her primary expertise in neurologic physical therapy, she also has experience with working with individuals with amputations, orthopedic conditions, and performing artists. She is a certified Assistive Technology Professional (ATP) through the Rehabilitation Engineering and Assistive Technology Society of North America (RESNA).  Her service work has included travel to Mexico, Tibet, and Kashgar, China, to conduct therapy clinics and distribute wheelchairs and other assistive devices and equipment to the underserved in those countries.

Teresa’s primary area of research interest is the dosing of physical therapy interventions for optimal outcomes in patients with neurological conditions.  She is currently working on publishing her first case study, which outlines the care of an individual with incomplete spinal cord injury using a novel treatment approach.   She will be teaching PT 6287: Adult Neurorehabilitation, and coordinating Pt 6288: Pediatric Rehabilitation.
