Joanne Fagerstrom, PT, CFP


Joanne Fagerstrom has been a licensed physical therapist since 1978 and is the owner of Mindful Physical Therapy, LLC, in Lafayette Hill, PA. She specializes in treating patients with osteoporosis and low bone mass (osteopenia).

Joanne places a strong emphasis on wellness in her treatment programs, and her additional certification in the Feldenkrais Method (completed in 2005) adds a unique dimension to her practice of physical therapy.  Through appropriate,  evidence-based exercise instruction and body awareness education, she aims to help each person achieve their greatest potential for function, health and wellness.

In 2009, after being diagnosed with osteoporosis, Joanne began the research and development of her comprehensive bone health program. She works with her patients both on an individual basis and in her weekly Strong Bones exercise classes. She presents the latest information in the field of osteoporosis in her annual workshop called Taking Charge of Your Bone Health.

In 2019, Joanne augmented her work by completing a 6-month online certificate program for nutrition through Cornell University.

Joanne is frequently asked to share her expertise in publications such as the Chestnut Hill Local, Weaver’s Way Co-op’s The Shuttle, and the Philadelphia Corporation for Aging’s Milestones – and even on ABC Channel 6 WPVI-TV! You can read and/or download PDFs of recent articles here –
