Trina M. Lisko, DO, FAAPMR, Triple Board Certified, Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, Electrodiagnostic and Sports Medicine, Fellowship Trained Sports and Spine Medicine. 


Dr. Lisko specializes in concussion management. These injuries can occur as a result of sports injury, work-related injury, motor vehicle accident and everyday incidents. The symptoms of a concussion can be mild to severe. Many of the symptoms of a concussion are frequently missed and can cause functional limitations. These symptoms may include a physical aspect, cognitive impairment, emotional disturbances and sleep disruption. 

Concussion treatments are personalized to the patient depending on the level of injury and impairments present. This will often require a team approach to address the complex layers of the injury. Prolonged symptoms may disrupt one's life and possibly create further injury, and Dr. Lisko will help to navigate your care through treatment and recovery to gain the best possible results.

She works with her patients to set functional goals to keep the patient as active as possible and to prevent further injury. She often incorporates a team approach to achieve these goals and will utilize modalities, interventions and alternative activities to help keep an athlete moving and happy. These approaches are not limited to athletes and are available to all patients who wish to function more effectively in their environment.

Dr. Lisko is well respected for her functional knowledge of the musculoskeletal system. She treats complex back, hip and shoulder pain as well as peripheral joint, muscle, tendon and ligament injuries. As part of an evaluation, she examines the body as a whole and strives to improve not just local pain from injury but one’s overall function. 

She serves as a physical medicine and rehabilitation specialist at Premier Orthopaedic Associates. She specializes in treating musculoskeletal injuries, concussion management, electrodiagnostic testing, regenerative medicine and interventional management to the lumbar spine. She is skilled in both fluoroscopic and ultrasound-guided intervention for both acute and chronic injuries, and concussion management. 

In the words of Trina M. Lisko

As a former Division 1 field hockey player and a two-time competitor on American Ninja Warrior, Dr. Lisko says, “I can empathize with the injured athlete. I’ve been there.”

Spine and Joint Injury Prevention

Dr. Lisko recommends the following tips to help protect your spine and joints:

  • Avoid lifting objects that are too heavy.
  • Lift with smooth, controlled motions, avoiding jerking movements.
  • Get close to the object you're lifting, rather than reaching at arm's length.
  • Maintain good posture and avoid awkward positions.
  • Keep your back straight and bend at your hips and knees.
  • Move your feet while lifting, instead of twisting your back.
  • Stand straight with your shoulders back.

Avoid prolonged flexion of the neck and forward head postures. Utilize ergonomic chairs, computer positions, and standing desks. Discuss exercises with your physician and therapist to strengthen and protect your back and joints. Not all exercises for spine and joint injuries are the same. Maintain a neutral sleeping position using pillows and a supportive mattress. Avoid sleeping on your stomach with your head turned to the side.

Our spine and joints are crucial for providing both mobility and stability. However, when injuries occur, even everyday movements like turning, bending, and reaching can become painful and functionally limiting.
