Aniefiok "Ani" Isen, PT, DPT, Telehealth
Aniefiok "Ani" Isen, PT, DPT is the Director of Telehealth Physical Therapy. Ani graduated from Lipscomb University, and obtained his Doctorate in Physical Therapy from the University of Tennessee Health Sciences Center in Memphis, TN in 2008. With just under 15 years of clinical practice, Dr. Isen brings a diverse background of therapies to this role. With experience in private practice, outpatient orthopedics, pain management, home health, skilled nursing, long-term care, assisted living, and memory care settings, Dr. Isen has a proven knack for helping patients feel and perform better, regardless of the clinical setting. His perspective on patient care is summed up here: "I work every day to help people become better versions of themselves and to help them regain control of their lives again, like I was able to do years ago. Our bodies have an incredible amount of potential to heal. A diagnosis is only detrimental when its symptoms exist. If we learn how to control the symptoms or fix the actual problem, we win."
Ani's interest in physical therapy began in high school when he injured his leg while playing football. Physical therapy helped Ani to regain the use of his leg and his interest in helping others to overcome similar challenges was ignited. Following his undergraduate degree at Lipscomb University, Ani graduated with his Doctorate in Physical Therapy in 2008 from the University of Tennessee Health Sciences Center in Memphis, TN.
Ani has a wide range of passions outside of work, including family, coaching, building and music. He has coached soccer, football, and basketball for 18+ seasons for elementary, middle, and high schoolers, on recreation, school, and travel levels of competition. He also loves woodworking, audio/video installations, tinkering, and fixing things when time permits. With an interest in music since the age of 3, Ani has participated in private recitals, group concerts, string ensembles, chamber groups, youth orchestras, honors bands and choruses, and the Memphis Youth Symphony. Ani also played in the Early Music Consort throughout most of his undergraduate study at Lipscomb University. A former football player, Ani played semi-pro football for 2 years, most recently with the Nashville Storm who was a national powerhouse in the early 2000s. Ani's reward at the end of each day is getting to spend as much time as possible with his amazing wife and 3 kids.
