Elizabeth Marshall, PT, DPT, CEIM
Pediatric Clinical Specialist

Hi!  I’m Elizabeth, a mom of 3 amazing kiddos, a wife, and pediatric PT based in Salem, OR.  I have a huge heart for giving littles the best start in life by supporting their early motor development.   My passion for neuroscience blends with my love of cuddling babies and has helped me find a niche in PT that makes work feel like play... and it honestly is!  ​I love my job!

I've been a licensed physical therapist for 15 years and have spent the past 11 working primarily with children, serving babies 0-3 years old.  I have also worked in adult neuro rehab my entire career.   With both populations, I help individuals recover using a researched based, task oriented approach with function at the heart of our gross motor goals.   Movement is not only healing, it is how we engage and participate in our world.  For babies, mobility is the foundation for learning and preps them for future math, reading, and problem solving skills.   My treatments work to incorporate your child as a whole, dynamic individual and enrich all areas of their development.  I often sing, use age appropriate cognitive games, and simple sign language to reinforce concepts and motivate my patients as we play together.  Therapy can be fun!
