L&C Orthopedics & Innovation was founded in 2016 with a focus in bio-mechanical analysis of individuals in the orthopedics and sports performance world. Our goal is to use automated software to guide rehabilitation, prevent injuries, and improve sports performance to benefit individuals and clinics.
Meet the Team:
Dr. Britt Lillie was born and raised in Rochester, NY. She attended Ithaca College majoring in Physical Therapy with a minor in Coaching: softball concentration. After six years, Britt achieved a Doctorate of Physical Therapy (DPT), B.S. in Clinical Health Studies, and a minor in Coaching. While finishing up her degree at Ithaca College, Britt became a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist allowing her to train athletes/clients at a higher level. Britt has experience in a variety of physical therapy settings but orthopedics and sports medicine is her passion. Britt moved to San Diego, CA to pursue her career in physical therapy and complete a one-year orthopedic residency program at Kaiser Permanente. After participating in the orthopedic residency program for one year and focusing all of her clinical experience in orthopedics and sports medicine, she received her certification as an Orthopedic Clinical Specialist (OCS). One of Britts primary focuses with her career, currently and in the future, is ACL research specifically establishing a world class prevention program to decrease the amount of individuals impacted by ACL tears each year. On top of ACL injury prevention, Britt has a strong passion for working with athletes especially softball and baseball athletes focusing on injury prevention, improving sports performance, and assisting in their rehabilitation to keep them on the field. Britt primarily focuses on all of these aspects of her career while working as a full time doctor of physical therapy at Water and Sports Physical Therapy.
Britt is one of the co-founders for the privately owned company L&C Orthopedics and Innovation. Her dad Jeff, who is an electrical engineer, and herself worked together to combine their two worlds, strong passion for biomechanical analysis and created an innovative and very accurate biomechanical analysis software with their fellow team members.
Britt maintains a very active life style when she is not working. She played softball at Ithaca College for four years and continues to play fast pitch softball in the San Diego Women’s Fast Pitch league. She also loves surfing, snowboarding, running, yoga, playing guitar, slow pitch softball and other outdoor activities.
