Rose Sicilia PT
My first experience with Physical Therapy was while I was a student at MSU and volunteered at the Physical Therapy Clinic on campus. I loved it and knew this was the career path I would pursue. I achieved a Physical Therapy degree from Oakland University and started my career at Providence Hospital. Here I found a deep interest in orthopedics. This interest led me to North Woodward Rehabilitation where I could continue my orthopedic pursuit. In my 20 plus years at North Woodward I have seen a multitude of patients with a variety of diagnoses. I have thoroughly enjoyed working with and getting to know all these people. Areas of interest have included General Orthopedics of spine and extremities, Chronic Regional Pain Syndrome of adults and adolescents and Geriatric Rehabilitation. Over the years I have taken a large variety of continuing education classes with recent concentration on all aspects of Senior Health and Rehabilitation with the goal of helping our seniors have a more active, safe and independent life. Individual, quality patient care by the same physical therapist each visit is a priority at North Woodward Rehab. Combining that philosophy with a caring and friendly staff make NWRS a wonderful place to work!
