Therapy Spotlight
Stephanie Porter, DPT
We’re shining our Therapy Spotlight on Stephanie Porter , a physical therapist and clinical manager at Ohio Sports & Spine Institute. Her favorite thing about her job is meeting new people and helping them restore their function and get back to feeling good.

She enjoys using functional movement assessment techniques to understand the underlying issues of patients’ pain and dysfunction.

“We’re all truly here because we care about our patients,” says Stephanie. “We’re committed to helping them get back to living.”

Stephanie works directly with physicians, as she frequently discusses patient care and communicates what will work best to help them achieve their goals.

“I’ve developed many great relationships at Ohio Sports & Spine over the course of my 17 years here, including relationships with employees, patients and their families.”

Outside of work, Stephanie is a photographer for ScoutingOhio.com, a high school football recruiting service that her husband runs. She also enjoys taking photos of her two sons, DJ (10) and Ty (7), and their friends playing sports.

Stephanie stays active and healthy by exercising, running, biking and practicing yoga.
