Deborah Lehner Warner
I was raised on a Dairy farm in Ridgefield, Wa and graduated as a Spudder in 1987. I went on to Clark College to play one year of volleyball and then to UPS to pursue my Master of Physical Therapy degree. I am proud of my 2 grown Children Darby and Alex who are successful and live here locally.
I am married to Bryan Shull and currently reside in Vancouver, WA. My time treating patients is shared between Ridgefield Physical Therapy and Balanced Physical Therapy which I co-own with Kahn Khabra and Josh Laughlin. I also co-own Battle Ground Physical Therapy with Shannon Schram. My practice serves a wide variety of patients with some of my specialty pertaining to Male and Female Pelvic Floor. I assess and treat pelvic pain, digestion issues, bowel and bladder dysfunction and post operative scar tissue or tissue damage such as diastasis. As much as possible I spend time with family including my grand daughter, running, camping, hiking, cooking and volunteering. I look forward to every opportunity to help my patients learn to help themselves.
I was born in Vancouver and raised in Hockinson, WA. After graduating from Washington State University with my BS in Biology Pre-Physical Therapy, I moved to Azusa, CA where I earned my Doctorate of Physical Therapy from Azusa Pacific University in 2012. My career passion is working in orthopedic rehabilitation. I especially enjoy working with athletes and their return to sport or injury prevention, patients who are preparing for or recovering from orthopedic surgery, as well as elderly patients who would like to increase their safety and function. My treatment plans include manual therapy, analyzing and optimizing biomechanics, ensuring patients are prepared to resume their prior activities with minimal risk for re-injury, in addition to providing the necessary education to self-manage their condition following discharge.
I now reside in Ridgefield, WA with my wife Andrea, my sons Lucas and Zachary, and our three dogs. Outside of work, I enjoy camping/boating and the outdoors, playing various recreational sports (baseball, flag football, softball, indoor soccer), and spending time in with my family.
I’m married and a mother of four active young adult children. I enjoy many forms of exercise such as dance, Pilates, hiking and bicycling. My family and I moved here from the mid-west and have been an integral part of Balanced Physical Therapy since January 2003. I also work part time with injury prevention at Frito Lay. I’ve been practicing Physical Therapy for over 30 years and I have a broad range of experience and advanced training in several areas: At one end of the spectrum; I can determine if corrective orthotics are needed and fit them; on the other end I’m confident of being able to help those with TMJ dysfunction. Most recently I became certified in Myokinesthetics which is a method to quickly and easily reset the body to alleviate (and eliminate) pain, restore range of motion and improve posture.
My three main goals with any treatment are evaluate thoroughly; equip the patient with “tools” to recover and progress even after discharge; and problem solve the best methods for a safe return to work, life, and recreational activities.
