Latisha Williams DPT

Success is the sum of small efforts, repeated day in and day out.” – Robert Collier

From a young age, Dr. Latisha “Tisha” Williams had ambitions of becoming a physical therapist. She grew up in the gymnastics world and was a competitive gymnast for 12 years at Jill’s Gymnastics. After sustaining a sports-related injury, physical therapy helped her recover and successfully return to the sport, and she knew she wanted to help others do the same.

Tisha attended Louisiana State University Shreveport and received her Bachelor’s Degree in Biological Sciences in 2012. She then proceeded to pursue her degree in physical therapy. In 2015, she graduated from LSU-Health Sciences Center in Shreveport with a Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) degree. She has since pursued further education in a variety of physical therapy areas, including orthopedic physical therapy, sports physical therapy, neurac, and dry needling.

Since graduating, Tisha has worked in outpatient physical therapy, inpatient physical therapy, and home health settings gaining experience with a variety of patients ranging from adolescents to geriatrics. She has treated patients with varying ailments and diagnoses, such as deconditioning, chronic pain, wound care, post-operative orthopedic physical therapy, post-op neuro, and other neurological deficits, and also sports-related injuries and sports therapy conditioning. She is passionate about incorporating her knowledge with fun and effective therapy techniques to get patients feeling better and achieving more functionality in their daily activities.

In her free time, Tisha enjoys her role as a vault coach for the women’s competitive gymnastics team at Jill’s, where she has been coaching for 14 years. She strives to incorporate her knowledge of physical therapy with her gymnasts to keep them healthy and strong.
