Ellen Pugh

I am a Tuscaloosa native who moved to Birmingham in 2011 to receive her Bachelor’s of Science degree from UAB. After graduating, I continued my studies and received my doctorate from Samford’s Doctor of Physical Therapy program in 2019. I am a board certified orthopedic specialist and also certified in dry needling. I have a passion for truly understanding how the human body works in each individual. My ultimate desire is to provide patient-centered care that not only focuses on the physical aspect of recovery, but also on the emotional, mental, and spiritual challenges that come with it. I want my patients to find comfort in knowing that I have the best intentions for them and their recovery.
