Hannah Swaim graduated from Boston College with a bachelor’s degree in Biology and a minor in Hispanic studies. She received her Doctor of Physical Therapy degree from Campbell University, NC. At Campbell, Hannah took several orthopedic and neurologically focused courses with an emphasis on how the whole body integrates together, as well as a specialized course in vestibular and concussion. She focuses on creating dynamic and functional therapeutic exercises combined with specific manual therapy techniques to enable patients to achieve their therapy goals.
Hannah has had extensive experience providing physical therapy services in outpatient settings in Massachusetts and Myrtle Beach, SC. She focused on high school and college level athletic population and jointly developing a plan of care and treatment goals with athletic trainers, personal trainers, massage therapists and pelvic floor physical therapists, as well as conducting physician-prescribed rehab programs for post-surgical patients (pediatric through geriatric). She also has had experience with various manual therapy techniques including cupping massage, thoracic and lumbar manipulations, and myofascial release using IASTM tools.
Not only has Hannah worked in the outpatient setting, she has also participated in an acute care Cardia ICU clinical internship at Vidant hospital in Greenville, NC. She worked with a highly complex patient population recovering from heart surgeries, vascular operations, amputations, and medically managed cardiopulmonary diseases. This clinical also afforded experience with orthopedics, trauma, neurology, cancer and wound care.
Hannah is a firm believer in the mind-body connection and implements this into her therapy practice as well as her personal life. She grew up playing soccer and running track and field, which has carried over into her love for fitness. She seeks to be active every single day, with a passion for running, weight lifting, playing soccer, and being outdoors. In the past, she has run several full and half marathons, including the Boston Marathon. She fell in love with traveling after spending 6 months in Madrid and wandering around Europe and can’t wait to plan her next travel adventure.
