Grace Landcaster PT, DPT

Grace Lancaster, PT, DPT, OCS

Grace’s undergraduate degree was obtained at Mars Hill University. She played varsity soccer all four years and graduated with highest honors from the Honor’s college. She then immediately went to PT school and graduated from Emory University in 2018 with a doctorate in physical therapy. Grace was awarded the Ian H. Tovin Scholarship upon graduation in recognition of outstanding performance throughout the program and intention to focus on orthopedics.

Upon matriculation and licensure, Grace decided to pursue specialization in orthopedics. Grace was 1 of 2 residents selected in to Emory’s orthopedic residency for the year of 2018. In America, less than 8% of physical therapists have their OCS.

In addition to treating patients during residency, she taught students in the Doctor of Physical Therapy program, was invited to present research on trigger point dry needling at the Brooks IHL Scholarly Symposium, and became a published author in AIDS Care (co-authored article addressing opioid usage in patients with chronic pain). Grace is also a member of the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) Orthopedic section.

After completing the residency Grace joined the Sportscare team. Grace is dedicated to developing lasting relationships with patients and helping them reach their goals. Her clinical interests include treating the female athlete, dizziness and balance deficits, and TMJ dysfunction. In her free time, Grace enjoys exercising, reading, learning German, and hanging out with her Fiancé and two cats.
