Linda Medio is a senior physical therapist at the Washington Street location in Wilmington, DE. She has been a PT for 21 years and worked initially in Massachusetts. Initially, she worked in subacute rehabilitation in multiple skilled nursing facilities after graduation. She enjoyed this time working with patients after surgery and hospitalizations.

Upon relocating to Delaware with her family, she worked at Saint Francis hospital and then transitioned to Dynamic PT performing outpatient therapy. She has been with Dynamic for over 10 years until Dynamic transitioned over to Pivot. Outpatient therapy has allowed her the chance to work with orthopaedic, neurological, geriatric and pediatric patients with a spectrum of diseases/injuries. Treating motor vehicle and workers compensation patients is rewarding especially when they return to their work and daily activities pain free.She enjoys working with vestibular patients-“dizziness” because of the challenge of this patient population. The most rewarding part of her occupation is building a rapport with patients.
