Chen Liu-Cudnik


Dr. Chein Liu-Cudnik recently joined our practice family at South Lake Wellness & Injury Center. She graduated from University of Sao Paulo, Brazil with BS in physical therapy 30 years ago. She also has a Masters degree in nonprofit management from Indiana University in 2001 and Doctor of Physical Therapy from Utica College, NY in 2014. 

She fell in love with her profession when visiting a leprosy village in a town where she grew up in Brazil and saw for the first time all the things that could be done as a physical therapist. She was invited by her professors to work for them in an outpatient clinic and in a pediatric cerebral palsy institution right before graduation from physical therapy (PT) school, which led her to open her own private practice and teaching PT students at University of Sao Paulo City. She was then offered a position in the US to work for Mount Sinai Medical Center in Miami, FL. There she worked mostly in the Rehabilitation Unit with Traumatic Brain Injuries, Stroke, other neurologic and orthopedic patients. After that she had the opportunity to work in diverses settings including nursing homes, hospitals and home health services in the capacity of director, clinician and instructor. Along these years she was trained and/or certified in cardio/pulmonary lymphedema, Isernhagen work hardening systems, vestibular rehabilitation, LSVT-BIG and cognitive rehabilitation focusing more with the geriatric and adult population. Looking back in this 30 years, she feels blessed that her passion is still the same as it was when she visited the Leprosy village.
