Lisa Barr, M.D. is a #1 international bestselling author and a native of Virginia Beach, Virginia. She is a seasoned physician with over 30 years of medical experience. Her passion for finding unique solutions for people living with painful musculoskeletal conditions has consistently garnered her recognition and acclaim. She is an alumna of Eastern Virginia Medical School, finishing as Chief Resident in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation in 1988.
In her clinical practice, as a Physiatrist she focuses on innovative methods to help guide people to optimal recovery, assisting each person to achieve their best functional outcome. By embracing both the newest technologies and the 'fine art of healing,' she is recognized as a driving force of change in the medical field both locally and nationally. Over the last 20 years, she has pioneered a range of regenerative medicine modalities - including platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and stem cell therapies - that facilitate the body to heal itself.
She was the first physician in her area to integrate this special blend of techniques into her unique medical model which also includes traditional interventional pain therapies, osteopathic manipulation, use of diagnostic musculoskeletal ultrasound, energy work, mind-body medicine, and Integrative and Functional Medicine. Her patients vary in age and occupation from professional and amateur athletes and dancers to firefighters, military personnel, busy homemakers, proud grandparents, boardroom executives, and more.
She has consistently been honored by her peers as a 'Top Doc' locally and statewide. She was selected as one of Hampton Road's 2012's Top Business Women of the Year.
A healer, teacher, and innovator at heart, she is interested in promoting pain literacy to others, as well as helping people understand how to harness the power of the mind-body connection to live pain-free, achieve resilience and optimal health. www.lisabarrmd.com
