Carolyn Lucas, DPT
Carolyn Lucas is a licensed Physical Therapist at P3: Precision Physical Therapy and Pilates. She received her Doctorate of Physical Therapy from Belmont University, where she graduated with Academic Excellence in 2014. Carolyn spent her undergraduate career studying Exercise Science at The University of Mississippi where she graduated from with Honors in 2010. Her passion for physical therapy originally stemmed from her passion and love for dance and performing. Carolyn started dancing at the age of three. Since then, she has performed in dozens of shows and musicals and danced professionally in both New York City and Las Vegas. However, she suffered an injury while dancing that ultimately led her back to school and to the field of physical therapy.
Carolyn has practical experience in acute care, pediatrics, rehab, and outpatient settings. The majority of her post-graduate education has included Maitland-based manual therapy techniques as well as extensive STOTT PILATES training; and Carolyn is working towards obtaining her certification in each realm. She has also completed the 1st level of the CAPP (Certificate of Achievement in Pelvic PT) Pelvic Series of the APTA (American Physical Therapy Association). Carolyn’s dance medicine knowledge comes not only from personal experience, but she has also completed training through the Dance Medicine Practicum at Westside Dance and Physical Therapy in New York. Carolyn is an active member of the APTA, including the Orthopedics, Women’s Health & Neurology sections as well as the Performing Arts Special Interest Group. She is also a member of the International Association of Dance Medicine and Science (IADMS).
Originally from Houston, Texas, Carolyn is loving life in Nashville with her new husband and their beloved dog, Koda. She loves to spend her free time with her family exploring Nashville as well as taking trips to Oxford, Mississippi as often as possible to cheer on her Ole Miss Rebels. Carolyn is so thankful to be able to work at P3, a facility where patient care is of utmost value.
