Elizabeth D'Annunzio Shah is a board certified orthopedic specialist and certified in manual therapy from the University of St. Augustine. She honed her skills in a bustling outpatient practice specializing in both orthopedic and neurologic rehabilitation. She works with patients of all ages and abilities including recreational athletes, expectant mothers and performing artists. She also has a special interest in vestibular and balance disorders.

Upon graduating from Boston University she worked in Santa Barbara, CA at a rehabilitation facility specializing in neurologic injury including stroke, spinal cord injury, multi-trauma and brain injury. It was in this environment that she developed an interest in movement theory and creative solutions for both neurologically and musculoskeletally impaired persons. She spent the next five years at Sharp Rees Stealy in San Diego developing her manual skills and advanced clinical reasoning. While there, she began to pursue a manual certification from the University of St Augustine, which she proudly completed in January of 2017. Since having two children, her interests have also grown to include women’s health, rehabilitation and activity preparedness pre and post-partum.

Elizabeth is passionate about exercise as a means to maintain health, manage stress and enjoy life! She practices yoga in the Iyengar tradition, is an avid surfer and finds herself running both for fitness and after her kids. She works to incorporate her love of activity into her approach to therapy and enjoys encouraging people to return to their personal and professional passions.
