Meet Morgan

Dr. Morgan Brosnihan, PT, DPT has been a Physical Therapist since 2017 and is passionate about helping her patients make progress to get back to, or keep doing what they love. Morgan has worked both as a traveling therapist, and a clinic manager.

With a range of experience from trauma hospitals, to rehab, to outpatient facilities, Morgan has an eye for medical complexities, and complex recoveries.

 “From helping patients learn to walk again, to helping athletes continue their endeavours, I am thankful for my knowledge and I hope with this platform I can reach more people to help them keep going, no matter where they are in their journey” – Morgan Brosnihan, PT, DPT

Going Mobile

In 2018 Morgan moved into her cargo van, and completed her first long distance hike on Vermont’s Long Trail. Then, in 2019 she completed the 2,650 mile Pacific Crest Trail from Mexico to Canada. After seeing countless hikers dealing with similar injuries, and some resulting in expensive town stays, quitting the trail, or losing their trail family, Morgan was determined to make a difference in injury rates of thru-hikers. On Trail, Morgan was able to help some hikers that happened to cross paths at the right time. After treating a hiker in the first 500 miles, she later ran into her 1500 miles later and learned her guidance was enough for her to keep going.

Since the PCT, Morgan has remodeled her bold red van to not only be a home, but also a mobile rehab. Offering accessibility to those in outdoor spaces, rural areas, or confined to home, Morgan brings quality care in a multitude of ways.

The Paw-fect Team

As seen in a few of the photos, Morgan has an assistant, Honey, who is a registered Therapy Dog. Honey has worked in clinics, gyms, and homes to help bring comfort and companionship to those seeking therapy.

While Honey does not have to attend in-home sessions, she is always available upon request.

Keeping You Going

Traveling by foot can make it complicated to seek help in the midst of a thru-hike. Organizing rides and connecting with healthcare professionals can be both time consuming and expensive while on trail. For PCT hikers in the class of 2022, Morgan will be out on trail in her van ready to assist.

For those not within the geographical area, Morgan can be reached via telehealth to offer a comprehensive evaluation and plan for meeting your goals.

FAQ

We are out of network with all health plans and we are not  enrolled as Medicare providers.  Therefore, private payment is required at time of service. If you have out of network benefits from your commercial insurance plan (not including Medicare), we will give you a statement that you can submit to your health plan for services your plan covers.  We cannot provide Medicare patients with a statement to submit for reimbursement since we are not enrolled Medicare providers.

Yes, if the services we provide to you are medically necessary for a medical condition or injury, we will provide you with a receipt to submit or maintain for your HSA, HRA or FSA account.  You are responsible for following the rules of your plan and the IRS regulations.

Help a Hiker is a pay it forward campaign to sponsor hiker injury evaluations. Anyone has the opportunity to buy a Help A Hiker sticker for $40 and it will supply a free hiker evaluation. Help A Hiker evaluations are a good faith initiative that those who can pay for services will, and those who need the help will feel comfortable asking so they get the injury help they need. It is our intent to stay out all summer, so we are readily available to hikers. Purchasing a Help A Hiker sticker also helps those efforts.

In addition to Help A Hiker, Blaze Physio will always help trail angels. If Morgan runs into a Trail angel while out treating hikers, that trail angel can receive any service at no cost, as a thank you for all they do.
