Anna Balling, DPT, earned her Doctorate of Physical Therapy degree from The University of Illinois at Chicago in 2018. She enjoys treating patients of all ages, with a particular interest in treating low back, pelvic girdle, and hip pain. Additionally, she enjoys working with patients with a variety of neurological disorders in the outpatient setting. Along with a strong emphasis on manual therapy and exercise-based interventions, Dr. Balling sees the importance of treating based on a biopsychosocial model, striving to discover the unique ways in which movement is most important in each of her patient’s lives. She feels passionately that all patients should be treated with empathy and empowered with health education.
Prior to physical therapy school, Anna graduated from Creighton University in Omaha, Nebraska with a Bachelor of Science degree and major in Health Administration and Policy and minor in Spanish. She also rowed on the NCAA Division 1 Women’s Rowing Team, where her deep interest in exercise science and movement inspired her to pursue a career in physical therapy. Outside of the clinic, Anna enjoys running along the lakeshore path, trying out new workout classes, reading historical fiction books, hanging out with her family in the suburbs, and practicing her Spanish.
