A little about the shoulder labrum:
After completing an undergraduate degree with a concentration in Physical Education and pre-med coursework at Rutgers University, and a Masters of Science in Physical Therapy at Duke University, Abby owned and operated Sports Training Physical Therapy, PC (STPT), a multi-site independent PT practice affiliated with the Sports Training Institute (STI). While associated with STI, Abby provided consulting services to establish affiliated PT sites in New York, California and New Jersey. After the 1996 sale of STPT to HealthSouth, Abby continued on as Director of three Manhattan HealthSouth locations until becoming a founding partner at Recovery Physical Therapy (RPT) in 2000. She relinquished her Director’s position at RPT in April of 2011 to relocate to Seattle.
In addition to lecturing at many sports medicine conferences and working with weekend warriors of all ages, Abby had the pleasure of providing care to countless professional and collegiate athletes, celebrities, and political figures during her physical therapy career. At present, Abby and her husband, sportscaster Dave Sims, divide their time between New York and Seattle, where Dave is in his seventh season as TV voice of the Seattle Mariners.
