Madison Bradley, PTA

Physical Therapist Assistant

My name is Madison Bradley. I am  originally from  Richmond,VA. I did my undergraduate degree at Shenandoah  University in Winchester, VA where I majored  in Exercise  Science and played varsity softball. I went to Blue Ridge  Community and Technical College to receive my LPTA. I love to  workout and go hiking with my dog, Huk and my husband,  Kellam. Outdoors are a big part of my life. I love to go skiing in  the winter in Colorado. I found my interest in physical therapy  when my brother unfortunately was in a bad car accident and  suffered many injuries, during that time I was able to take care  of him and worked aside the nurses and physical therapy units.  Seeing the joy when he progressed was the happiest moment  of my life. At just 13 years old, I knew I wanted to work in the  physical therapy field. Being an athlete my entire life, I love  working with athletes as well as children because I get to be  creative and fun. I love working on all ages as well, and  thoroughly enjoy working with hip and knee replacements as  well as injuries/pain related to the spine.
