Julie Ross


Former collegiate track and field athlete, wife, and mother of two young boys, Julie understands the deep significance of personal wellness and how much our movement matters. A compassionate person by nature, she dedicates her time and expertise to both family and a thriving family practice.

Emphasizing strength and resiliency in her wellness coaching and approach to physical therapy. Patients learn about their movement and are empowered to take charge of their progress.

Launching her career in 2001 with a Masters of Science degree in Physical Therapy from Washington University School of Medicine, St. Louis, Julie furthered her education later receiving a Doctor of Physical Therapy degree from Concordia University. Beginning her physical therapy career with onsite industrial therapy and ergonomics training in the US, she branched out internationally to work as a physiotherapist in the UK for several years.

A devoted small town girl at heart, Julie returned home to Rushville, Illinois

to raise her children near her family and care for her rural community. Dr Ross specializes in Schroth Scoliosis Management, and Total Joint Recovery offering the most comprehensive services in the area. Julie believes you deserve nothing less than the very best healthcare. Striving to provide the utmost level of care and highest quality physiotherapy, she wants every client of Family Wellness and Studio 117 to know they are truly cared for and loved.

What is Wellness?

We all respond differently to health challenges, and the process of positive change is unique to each individual. Instead of promoting one specific lifestyle or healing method, Family Wellness helps you find what works for you. As a compassionate, educated guide in the fields of nutrition, wellness, bio-individuality and health coaching, Julie will help you discover your own pathway to healing.

How can Physical Therapy help?

Physiotherapy or physical therapy encompasses rehabilitation, injury prevention, health promotion, and overall physical wellbeing. Physical therapists use a biomechanically-based, whole body approach to treatment, considering every patient’s individual lifestyle and engaging them in their own treatment. Family Wellness applies tried-and-true clinical diagnostic methods to evaluate and treat a variety of musculoskeletal concerns within a virtual clinic setting. We focus on biomechanical movement to restore and maximize strength, function, and motion.

What is Strong Girl?

As a survivor, I founded Strong Girl Now to honor, support, and heal women like me. Diagnosed with Breast Cancer at age 40, when my youngest son was an infant I know what it's like to be a busy wife and mother and pray for the strength to tackle another day. I am grateful to be here to help others through the arduous process of healing and recovery. Each and every one of us is living proof that what does not defeat us makes us strong. Take back your life and be Strong Now.
