Dr. Heather North holds a Doctorate in Physical Therapy from the University of Colorado. She is the owner of Red Hammer Rehab in Louisville, CO that specializes in sports-related orthopedic injuries and prevention. This practice has won “Best Sports Medicine Rehab Facility” and “Best Sports Medicine Doctor” year upon year since it’s opening. Heather’s focus is on sports medicine and orthopedic manual and manipulation physical therapy. She is known for being aggressive with injuries and focusing on discovering and fixing the mechanics behind each and every injury. She believes that it is important to continue to learn the newest and most up to date techniques.
