Britt Zink helps active adults and adolescents recover from injury so they can return to the activities they love without medications, injections or surgery.
Britt Zink first became interested in the field of Physical Therapy as a high school athlete undergoing extensive rehabilitation following multiple knee surgeries for injuries sustained in basketball and track during her athletic career. Her love for fitness and exercise, her own personal experience in the role of the patient, and genuine concern for the well-being of others led her into the field of Physical Therapy.
Her experience as the patient extended into adulthood as she found herself dealing with her own neck and low back pain early in her career as a physical therapist. Seeking to find relief of her neck and back pain as well as recurring vertigo and migraine headaches, she pursued specialty training in the McKenzie Method® for the evaluation and treatment of the spine. Her own personal experience with vertigo prompted Britt to pursue additional training in Vertigo assessment and treatment which includes Vestibular Rehabilitation, and the Epley Manuever for BPPV (Benign Paroxysmal Postional Vertigo).
Prior to founding her own private practice, Britt worked in a variety of settings where she was frustrated that she could not spend the individualized time with patients that she felt they needed and deserved. She did not feel it was in the best interest of the patient to be left in a gym to perform their exercises by themselves or to be supervised by assistants, aides or other office personnel. So, she founded Britt Zink Physical Therapy Services LLC so that she could provide excellent care in a manner that is in the best individualized need of each patient.
Her philosophy of care emphasizes individualized one on one patient care that places priority on helping patients learn how they can treat and manage their pain without the need for medications, injections, surgery or frequent and excessive trips to the clinic. She empowers her patients with techniques they can implement in their daily lives to keep themselves pain free and prevent recurrence in the future.
A native of Sioux City, Iowa, Britt completed her Bachelor of Arts in both Biology and Chemistry from Mount Marty College in Yankton, South Dakota. She then completed her Master of Science in Physical Therapy at the University of South Dakota.
Britt has been credentialed in the McKenzie Method ® for the Mechanical Diagnosis and Treatment of the Spine through the McKenzie Institute ® since 2002. She also incorporates Myofascial Release and Manual Therapy Techniques to help her patients relieve their pain. With over 23 years of experience, Britt is an expert in the Sioux Falls Region in the evaluation and treatment of the disorders of the spine.
