Bio

Intrigued by the biomechanics of the human body, Amy Weyhenmeyer realized her career path early. She pursued a kinesiology undergraduate degree from Boise State University and upon graduating, returned to her hometown of Reno to work in a physical therapy clinic as a PT technician. Her combined love for sports, fitness, and injury prevention inspired her to obtain a Doctorate in Physical Therapy from Nova Southeastern University in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

Over the past several years, Amy has had the great fortune to work with a wide range of patients, from geriatric and pediatric, as well as professional, collegiate, Olympic, and recreational athletes. While living in Florida, she had an amazing opportunity to work with elite athletes in an outpatient rehabilitation facility associated with the Miami Dolphins Football Team. In 2017, she had the honor of being named Top 3 Best Physical Therapists by Reno Magazine, Best of Reno addition.

Amy’s treatment approach is built on a whole-body philosophy; looking at the joints and movement patterns above and below the injury to ensure her patients return to their activities with more efficient body mechanics. She chooses specific exercises for the individual based on her years as a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist, as well as a Certified Pilates Instructor. Each day, she continues to strive for the best personalized outcomes for each patient and emphasizes a preventative approach to decrease the risk for future injuries. Although her passion is to help athletes return to their sports or recreational activities, she has broadened her knowledge and sharpened her manual skills using techniques in muscle energy, myofascial and craniosacral.

Although she has lived in several cities around the country, as a Reno-Tahoe native, Amy always finds herself coming back to the area she loves. She and her husband spend most of their time outdoors at Lake Tahoe, traveling and watching baseball.
