Elizabeth Dalrymple, PT, DPT, OCS
Elizabeth Dalrymple is a Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) and board certified Orthopedic Clinical Specialist (OCS) who specializes in overhead and rotational sports like softball, baseball, golf, volleyball, swimming, tennis and gymnastics. She works at Activcore in Atlanta, Georgia, located just 2 miles from Emory University.
As a former varsity softball player and Ivy League Pitcher of the Year award winner at Cornell University, Elizabeth has a special interest in treating both overhead and rotational athletes. She holds a Bachelors degree in Nutrition from Cornell University, as well as a Doctorate degree in Physical Therapy from Arcadia University, ranked among the top 10 PT schools in the country. She is also a graduate from Emory University’s Orthopedic Residency program.
Elizabeth goes beyond the symptoms and looks at the whole body to help you recover from pain and injury, and safely return to a fulfilling life of sport, activity and wellness. She is among less than 10% of all physical therapists to have earned the prestigious OCS designation as an orthopedic clinical specialist, making her exceptionally equipped to treat you from head to toe. Additionally, she is recognized nationally as a leading authority in the application of Redcord, a suspension exercise system designed to help you develop a smarter, balanced body through the power of neuromuscular activation.
After starting her career as a nutrition program coordinator for a clinic in Haiti, Elizabeth decided to combine this passion for helping others with her love of movement to pursue physical therapy. Having competed as a Division I softball pitcher, she understands the importance of having a healthy body and the dedication necessary to reach one’s optimal level of fitness. She particularly enjoys helping prevent and rehabilitate injuries in young “overhead athletes” to empower them to continue to pursue their athletic dreams. This includes overhead sports such as volleyball, softball, baseball, tennis, swimming, and track & field throwing events.
At Activcore, Elizabeth works with one individual at a time, to not just treat the symptom, but find the root cause of the athlete’s pain. In an overhead athlete, this means evaluating the transfer of dynamic forces through the body from the foot hitting the ground, through the pelvis and core, bringing velocity to the upper body. Her treatment addresses each of these components to improve mobility and stability, correct movement patterns and allow athletes to compete pain-free.
Elizabeth commits herself every day to helping others achieve their goals by incorporating manual therapy, dry needling and exercise into comprehensive treatment plans tailored to each client’s needs. She hopes to meet clients where they are in life, whether that be working towards a healthier lifestyle or honing one’s physical capacity to its highest potential. Her greatest joy comes from connecting with clients on an individual level to create a partnership in physical rehabilitation and wellness.
